    Folks Make Mistakes

    and/or  some folks have dyslexia..  As long as i can get the gist of what they are trying to say, i bypass the mistake and keep it moving.  Only thing left to do at that point is to comment or not.

    About That...

    I have only ever been attracted to women of a certain age, much older than me. It's natural for me, so the age difference clearly doesn't matter in my opinion.

    Especially when it comes to younger girls and older guys! girls are generally more mature than the guys of same age, so the age difference makes it a good balance!
