(The Scottish Sun)   Dear Deidre: I'm a 55-year-old semi-retired pizza delivery guy who fancies a 21-year-old coworker, but I want more out of the relationship than just being a mate or father figure. She recently lost her dad. Should I step up and fill the void?   (thescottishsun.co.uk) divider line

It sounds like a great idea... if she's an immigrant desperate to stay in the country.

/  when you were 21, were you hot for 55yr old grannys?  There's your answer.

I think we know what void he wants to fill there.

When I got my first grown-up job 20 or so years ago there was a 50ish (maybe 45ish) woman there that I absolutely would have, like the fist of an angry god.  But mostly, yeah, no.

Dear Deidre,
I'm a late-30s, out of shape web designer with few aspirations that involve leaving the chair. I'd like to date billie eilish and party at LA's hottest clubs. Should I step it up like that last guy?
 
2020-05-22 3:36:49 AM  
The last time I had a realistic chance with a 21 year-old, I think I was just shy of 40. It didn't work out, at least partly because I had this weird idea that she shouldn't be completely empty-headed, and shouldn't spend most of her modest income on coke. fark, I was 21 once. What ever was I thinking?
/Probably that the last girlfriend was a basket case, and the one before that, and...
//Eventually it dawns on you that not only is it not your job to fix people, you can't farking do it anyway.

The technical term for this is 'dangerously delusional'.

Get a grip™...

Women and men rank different things when it comes to attractiveness. For men, it basically boils down to looks and how quickly they think the woman will sleep with them. Everything else is secondary.

Women take a much more nuanced approach, and generally speaking the things that drive their attraction have more to do with confidence and financial security than physical looks. In fact, women actually prefer older partners.

So, while "55 year old granny" would be a deal-breaker for a man, "55 year old grandpa" wouldn't necessarily be one for a woman.

I work with some young men in their early 20s    I get texts from some of them off hours. Usually its just  a link to something funny   They're just being nice to an old lady. Never would I imagine that they would be interested in me.
The dude is delusional.
 
2020-05-22 5:28:37 AM  
Yes, the age gap is too much for you, as someone said above, 'get a grip'.

But Farkers.....stop acting like 55 years old indicates ancient, fossilized, dried up husks of a person! It's not old!

(Yes, I did just turn 56)

It is true that a confident, powerful, financially well off man can be attractive to a younger woman.
But this guy does pizza delivery. He is delusional.
 
2020-05-22 5:47:11 AM  
Also no, he definitely should not try to take advantage of her emotional vulnerability

So all I have to so is start acting unconfident and I can get all these 20 something year old chicks to stop following me?

'Semi-retired pizza delivery guy' is both the most and least imaginative way I've ever heard someone describe themselves as being unemployed.
 
2020-05-22 6:40:56 AM  
My old lady,( that's right.. old lady), is in her 50's and still quite hot. I'd do her.

If you can't pound a willing 21 year-old when you are 55, what is the point of living past 40?

Oh, they're thinking about you in that way, at least some of them are.  Trust me, I used to be in my early 20's.

What is that saying?  "Women are attractive to men from puberty until 6 hours after death.  Longer if it's a hot day".

Yeah, because who's going to come along and fix me now?  People are assholes.  Let them die.  Nobody ever cared if i did or not.  Too busy chasing after that almighty dollar.

It's a trap.

You don't want to go there.

I couldn't believe how many young girls hit on, flirted and pursued me when I started dating again. They still do too, I'm just use to it now.

Yeah but if you're in your 80s, you're still the pizza driver in that situation.

? If they're not ready to get their shiat together, they won't. You can stage all the interventions you like. 2 days after they leave rehab, they'll have fresh track. You risk enabling people's misbehavior by hanging around. Plus you get to feel bad and be pissed at them when they fail. No thanks. There are also certain mental heath issues that will result in you getting put through hell, without anything ever improving much for them. These also should be avoided. Can you imagine trying to live in the same house with Donald Trump?

How is someone a "semi retired pizza delivery driver"? It's not really a "career", not sure if you ever really retire from that line of work.

I took it to mean "I retired but was bored so I deliver pizzas to pass the time." but maybe I'm reading too much into it.

Yep. Our newspaper delivery person is a retired rich guy. Everyone in town knows him. He delivers on foot every day. We talked to him one day last year. He does it for fitness. Physical and mental fitness. He doesn't golf or hang with other rich people. He does it to have something to do in fresh air. Very nice man.

Maybe that's it... Weird phrase, like being a semi retired Walmart greeter. But yeah, that might be it!
