Where Have All The Hot Guys Gone?

Despite the fact that I am married and forty-something I still have a (very slight) awareness of the men I encounter in my day to day life.  After all, I am not yet dead.  And lately a situation has arisen that has made me uncomfortably aware that the men I know … are getting sorta old!  Not that I am getting old mind you, but that THEY are.  As my blog name testifies, I am still twenty four at heart.  And I mean that.  I THINK I am still twenty four.  My brain has never really accepted any birthdays after the age of twenty four.  And when I am asked my age I SAY that I am twenty four.  Until the listener does something rude like laugh and then I realize that I have to try and remember how old I REALLY am.  Sadly, it has become harder and harder to remember!

Well, not long ago a new man entered my life.  His name is FRED.  And I see FRED as another indication that I must be having a mid-life crisis.  Now before you get alarmed for my husband, Briefcase, let me tell you that hubby has NOTHING to worry about.  FRED entered my life as a result of a recent surgery I went through.  (Still trying to put me back together from a car accident awhile back.)  FRED showed up in my life as a harmless, short, slightly puffy old man.  And FRED and I should have had one or two encounters and gone our separate ways.  BUT THERE IS NO GETTTING RID OF FRED!!  FRED has a crush.  And FRED keeps popping up everywhere I go.  And I do mean – everywhere!  FRED thinks he still has "it".  FRED is harmless and I know that.  But FRED has been on my mind a lot because FRED is old.  And FRED is attracted to ME.  And I am NOT old … am I?

To be fair, my whole life I have attracted men like FRED.  Maybe not quite as old as FRED.  But men like FRED … I attract them like flies and always have.  Don’t ask me why – I don’t think I even WANT to know the answer to that question.  But the hot guys … where are they?  Where have all the hot guys gone?  There used to be at least a few of those mixed in with all the FREDs.  And now, maybe because of FRED … because FRED is stalking attracted to me, all of a sudden I am looking around at the men I encounter each day.  And let’s be honest … they aren’t looking so good.  They are losing their hair, they are graying, they are … a little soft.  That got me to thinking – there must be some hot guys out there SOMEWHERE?

Now I find myself going through each day and making mental notes of the men I encounter.  A lot of them are FREDs.  More of them are POTENTIAL FREDs … well on their way to becoming FRED.  Once in awhile I will be somewhere and have a moment of surprise, "There’s a hot one!"  And then sadly, I will realize it is one of my daughter’s college friends or something disheartening like that.  Mind you, it is not that I am AFTER a hot man … just wondering where they all have gone to?

    Hi! I just found your blog, via UD’s. I’m originally from So. Cal, 48, and also named Suzanne! I married someone 3 years ago who I knew when I was a teenager and I thought he was the hottest thing that ever walked the face of the earth. Now that I’m an old married lady, I still find myself getting flustered when talking to a cute guy, even though he may be 1/2 my age and call me maam. But once in a while some young guy will check me out (when he can’t see me close up, obviously!), what a hoot! I think to myself, if he only knew that I’m old enough to be his mother! Makes me smile. Back to FRED, I think it’s cool that you have your own fan club! ;^)

    HEY! I’m gonna be 40 this year and I consider myself to still be MILF worthy! LOL
    Or at least I’m working on it…
    As long as my wife still sees me as 24, that’s all that matters! 🙂
