I am going to try to make this as concise as possible.
This might be considered inappropriate, but I want to say that I am not trying to offend anyone.
I am a 55-year-old man, and a newly converted-Catholic, who attends mass regularly. Today, after mass, I learned a valuable lesson about men.
There is a young lady who attends mass whenever she is home from college. This young lady is 21 years old, and she is a senior at the university of the State that we reside. The young lady is not hard to look at. It would be accurate to say that the young lady is very pleasant to look at!
It was always a treat to me to talk to her when she comes home and attends mass. We’re not talking about asking her out or trying to make a move on her. I am simply talking about having a brief conversation with her. The conversation is usually limited to how college is going.
This isn’t something that I usually advertise online, but I am going to make an exception here because I feel it’s relevant. I have a disability. The reason that I am bringing up my disability is that this young woman would have been out of my league if I were 30 or 35 years younger. I felt that my disability might have played a part in my perspective as far as it always being a treat to me whenever I get to see and talk to this young woman. It was my belief, before today, that I was the only older man who felt this way.
I always waited until we were out of the sanctuary before speaking to her. Today, there was a man in his early 80s who didn’t wait until he was out of the sanctuary to engage this young woman in conversation, and he also kept her for a while. This incident made me realize that I am not the only older man who enjoys conversation with this young woman. I could tell that he enjoyed talking to her just as much as I do.
Please allow me to say that this young woman is a very nice person and that she is well mannered.
This experience taught me something about the male species.
I wonder if she has any idea how much of us older men enjoy talking to her.
