Thanks for reading and responding, Brandon! I’m sorry that you had that happen in your 20s!
Yes, there are definitely users out there — male AND female! The using may just look a bit different! And is unacceptable from both sides.
(Or maybe it’s fine if an older guy wants to be with a hot young chick and they mutually agree to use either other. I’m still not a fan of that arrangement, but if both are honest and okay with it, I just have to shrug.)
I thought you might enjoy this story I wrote a couple of months ago. I wrote it with an upper-30s to 50 age range in mind. I would tweak it if it were for a younger age bracket and include the “free meal ticket” as one of the colors.
