A lot of people are unaware of the fact that a certain percentage of young gay men don’t like guys their own age. They prefer men in their 50’s and up, and I call them “daddy lovers”. There’s even a website dedicated to these young men called Silverdaddies. I’ve met plenty of young men through that site, some of whom I still see once in a while.
I think these intra-generational relationships are becoming more common in the gay subculture, and that’s certainly welcome news for me, since I prefer the company of men younger than me. 😉
I spent a delightful evening at home, yesterday, dining on leftovers and watching the last half of a Netflix rental, The Reader, which is one hell of a film. Then I sat on my back porch and enjoyed the cool evening breeze before hitting the bed around 11:30.
To the left is a nugget of Daddy Wisdom I think every young gay man should read and take to heart. Don’t be afraid to take chances, guys. I believe it was Oscar Wilde who wrote, “In the end, the things we regret the least are what we once thought were our biggest mistakes.”
It’s actually a pleasant day outside this morning because there’s a nice breeze blowing and it doesn’t feel so stinking hot. I think the humidity’s down some, and we have some cloud cover too.
I have an easy day ahead of me. I have a minor painting project, and some correspondence to take care of. I want to take a two-mile run, here on the island, and also take a three-mile walk on the beach. I may have a date tonight, that’s in the works. But mostly I’m going to savor the last days I am spending at my home before I leave for the Far West for three weeks.
Have a nice Saturday, everyone.
