Dear Abby: I’m a single woman in my late 30s and have an 18-year-old daughter. When I am alone or out with my girlfriends, I am constantly hit on by younger men. My girlfriends say it’s because I don’t look my age and that I should feel flattered. Well, I am not a “cougar,” and I don’t get turned on by younger men. I find it offensive when I am approached by them.
While my single friends are being asked on romantic dates by professional older men, I’m being asked on dates by struggling college boys who have no car, no job and cramped living quarters with three other roommates. Give me a break!
