I think that maybe I need an avenue in which I might meet people older than myself. And by people, I mean men.
The last date I went on with someone who was about a year and a half younger than myself kept marveling at my age, and the fact that I'm a return missionary. To the point that I was a tad annoyed. But not so much as when he remarked that he liked that I was older because he felt like I could take care of him.
At which point I noted that I wasn't about to be his mother.
