First trip to Staten Island, on the ferry. Hey, I have only lived in New York City for nearly 30 years –> Check
Sex with a 55 year old woman, first in a long time –> Check
So what happened? Nothing to do with sugar but noteworthy nevertheless. We were at a friends dinner party the other day, and started talking about the stock markets, interesting trades, old stories, and the general lack of quality financial education that is concise and practical. And we were all very concerned about that because we all have young children, so the sentiment was: Wow, they teach them math and history, but what about finance and investments. No wonder when they all grow up and become adults, on the average, they have no idea how to manage their finances. So I started talking with one of the ladies there that was divorced and concerned about her investments. She then wanted me to meet on Saturday during the day and review her 401(k). She had taken a beating over the past month, being 100% invested in stocks. You would think people would have already learned their lesson between the dot com bubble and the credit crunch but noooo. So I took the trip on the ferry and went to a casual restaurant on Staten Island, an Italian family place for lunch. Then we started going over her statements, positions, and discussed her viewpoints and risk tolerance etc etc. At that point she was looking into my eyes in what I thought was more than just pure financial interest. We started talking about families, kids, how tough it is to raise them and teach to stay away from dirty old men, how to become more independent and self confident, and all that.
We ended up on her couch, she gave me a Guiness and by that time I was thinking it was all a ploy to get me in her house and take advantage of me. Oh well. So we ended up having sex on a quiet Saturday afternoon, which is something I really like anyway.
Will I repeat? I am not sure, she is quite older than me, and I haven’t been with an older woman in a very long time. I feel ambivalent about it. I don’t want to just dump her as she is a very nice person. However, my preferred age group now is 27 to 33. Another post will explain why. So I have no idea what to do when/if she emails or calls. I may have to just let her know that what happened should not have happened, and hopefully nothing will ever get back to my friend at whose party we met. Sticky!!
