In her column today, nicely titled Toy boy, cradle-snatching or female mid-life crisis (cause women can’t have a real, meaningful relationship with a younger man ya know), Sam Brett speaks to ‘real life Aussie toyboy Patrick’. Poor Patrick, who has been dating older women since he was seventeen, has been irretrievably damaged by older women because he can no longer talk to women of his own age! OMG, can someone please hand me my pearls and fainting couch.
“Due to my constant contact and on-going relationships with much more mature women, I now find it very, very hard to actually maintain a conversation with females my own age, let alone a relationship,” he explains.
“I am not saying males in such a situation don’t absolutely love the attention that they are receiving, but I really do think that there is definitely a need for the older female party to be aware of the implications of dating someone so young.”
