Written 2-11-10 about Grown Up and Still Foolish: Anne’s Crazy Dating Life, July 29, 2007
AnneTracker| Katie Couric wrote in this month’s Harper’s Bazaar interview about why she dates younger men:
“I just find it stupid, you know? I think it also surmises that the older woman is always the pursuer. That’s not necessarily true. I always say that maybe the older woman is the prey and someone else is the predator. It’s just silly.”
This is my case, too. I do not pursue younger men. The truth is quite the opposite — that younger men pursue me.
As a sidebar to my sharing of this date with readers, I didn’t see this man again, even though lunch was splendid. That afternoon, this very handsome man met with a client, fearful that he would lose the account.
I drove him to his meeting. The day did not go well.
Although I don’t subsequently write very much about the changing American economy in 2007, reality is that I met many men consumed with concern over what was happening. In my own consulting business, there were many signs that an economic meltdown was coming.
