    How come only much older men seem to take an interest in me? I went to a party and a man was chatting to my friend (he is 41) and asked for her number at the end. I think she ignored him after but weeks later the man told someone I know that he 'got the wrong number that night' and he 'should have got the number of the quiet pretty girl sat on the couch'. Apparently that was me though I know for certain I'm not the pretty type. The thing is he is 15 years older than me and very overweight. I'm not even saying that overweight is unattractive but I'd like someone who works out and is in shape a bit of a nerd like me rather than an older constant drinker/partier. Even my cousin (who is the same age as him and is his friend) asked me if I was interested in him. I don't get how he thinks I'm a suitable match though as its like when he was leaving school I'd just been born. Do older men not have restrictions on age? I know you get age gaps now and again but I would've thought it's weird with being at different life stages. Middle aged men should be enjoying their children/grandchildren.
