I actually would prefer someone closer to my age and I suspect that wish will come true as my girlfriend comes to realize that I live “dog” years (1 of my years being equal to some multiple of her years). With my focus on these next very few “good” years and her focus (due to the luxury of youth) on building a beautiful “future” together, I’m thinking that sooner than later I’ll be living the punchline to the famous joke about the talking frog claiming to be a young princess willing to trade fabulous sex for a transformative kiss who keeps complaining to the golfer as he completes one hole after another while withholding that kiss: “At my age a talking frog is more interesting!”
