Age and dating

Similar to their younger male counterparts, younger women have reflected this interest in older men.

However, the rise of the "older woman-younger man" relationship has loosened this relationship convention and instead celebrates the age-gap romance.

“Cat Person,” a short story by Kristen Roupenian: “By her third beer, she was thinking about what it would be like to have sex with Robert.” https://t.co/e Ex V7Gh Vn N pic.twitter.com/8k IQ2Gz Ai7— The New Yorker (@New Yorker) December 14, 2017 is, essentially, a fine-grained account of a bad date between Margot, a 20-year-old undergraduate and 34 year-old Robert, told from Margot’s perspective. At least, it’s awful from Margot’s perspective; she finds Robert’s body repulsive (too fat, pale and hairy – perhaps her response is a reflection of her young age), and his sexual technique an offputting mixture of the sloppy, the pornographic and the mechanical.

Robert asks Margot out after buying sweets from her at the artsy cinema where she works, but after several weeks of zingy banter and one touching meeting, they go on a date in which the fit between expectation and reality is poor; Robert is taciturn, the film ill-chosen and, after a few drinks, the sex is…(spoiler alert! he details are very well observed: for instance the subtle but daunting rules instilled by Robert from the outset in their texting; he writes back instantly unless Margot takes a while to respond, in which case he punishes her with a terse message that contains no questions.

Now, hit a chord partly because it’s a very easy story to relate to if you’re a woman.
