I’m 19, the guy was 42.
Him: Liberal arts is where it’s at!
In dc now looking for new friends and adventures. Does that sound like something you’re interested in?
We could get wine and talk russian history and lit.
Me: I’m flattered, but I am also less than half your age. No thanks.
Him: Sure. I understand. But that extra age is just experience you shouldn’t turn down without investigating.
—5 hours pass—
Him: The age is really too much for you? No sense of mystery and adventure?
Me: I am literally young enough to be your daughter. It’s too much of a difference, sorry.
Him: Look. I know it’s a difference. But I can treat you like no one your age would ever know how to treat you. I promise you’d feel things that you won’t experience for awhile. Just be open minded. I’m not a creep, just an experienced and sensuous man who likes to please women. You can control everything about meeting bid you ever feel uncomfortable, you just walk away.
Good idea. I’m uncomfortable, time to walk away.
