Do I have to find an 80-year-old to be the younger woman?PS: No you don't, although there are some great 80-year-olds out there!And quite a few men want somebody who has had life experience like their own. » Question from Catherine: I'm too busy to actively date.A teenage daughter, a 60-hour-work week, a full slate of volunteer/local board responsibilities, and a garden that still hasn't been planted. Would love some advice on how to prioritize my love life. PS: Let the garden go — it can come back next year.But just so you know, I was the lead witness against the don't-ask-don't-tell rule in federal court and I testified for gay marriage in Hawaii, and for gay adoption and foster-child placement in Arkansas.

I don't think that all men pick on the basis of age.
Remember, the ultimate goal is to meet the love of your life.
Question from Lorraine from Philly: How can I date younger men without being labeled a "cougar." PS: I'm not going to label you a cougar!
