A strange thing happened to me tonight while at work, and I still don't understand it.

I'm standing at the register, ringing people up, merrily chatting with my customers. One of the guys I befriended when I worked at Kmart came into my line, and we started talking about work and just life in general. Then, out of the blue, the guy asks for my phone number and says he's single and looking for someone to date. This really shocked me, as I was really just friends with him at work and nothing else, and I never even considered dating him and still won't. We've never even done anything together outside of work!

Normally I wouldn't have a problem with this if it was someone I really liked, and I would even jump at the chance to have a date if it was with a guy I really liked, but not him, and I'll tell you why:

1.) He is at least 20 or more years older than I am. He could almost be my dad!

2.) He has an 18 year old daughter, and I have a really hard time imagining dating a guy who has a daughter that's only eight years younger than me. If anything were to ever happen between us, it'd be really weird to think that I'd be like her mom.

3.) He's a really nice guy, but I'm just not into him!

I'd just like to understand what makes guys that are old enough to be my dad attracted to me, and why I have such a hard time getting noticed by any guys that are more closer to my age. It's kinda creepy, actually! Surpris
Don't get me wrong, I will date older guys. I'd have no problems right now with dating a guy who's in his early to mid 30s, and I have no problem with dating guys who are just a few years younger than me. But when you're old enough to be my dad that's where I draw the line! And if I'm gonna date a guy with kids, the kids should ideally be under 10 years old. That way if they ever have to start calling me or referring to me as "Mom" it won't be so strange.

To me it sounds to me like he's probably just desperate, and I know all about desperation, trust me! Rire But geez, I haven't stooped to that level of desperation yet! Rire I mostly tend to keep matters of the heart to myself, although I do occasionally get fed up with being single and dateless and need to vent, as you have all seen.

And no, he didn't get my number but instead he gave me his. Am I going to call him? No.

If you're not into him, then you shouldn't date him.

I think you've done the right thing there. If you're not interested, you're not interested.

I always wondered why it's always younger guys or older guys that're interested in dating me, while the guys my age are either dating younger or older women. It's weird how that works! Tire la langue

Yep, that would make him 46 now, which means he would've been about 28 when she was born.
