Here are two pieces of wisdom the Shill imparted to me over a decade ago. They are as true now as they were then.
1. If you want to tell if it’s ridiculous for you to be dating someone, take the older person’s age, divide it by 2 and add seven. If the younger person’s age is older than that number, you’re fine. If not, you look like an idiot.
Hmm. I guess I need to start considering any hot 24 year olds that come my way…
2. Some people, when they meet a person, basically give that person 100 points and take them away as that person disappoints them. Other people, when they meet a person, start that person out at zero and add points as the person impresses them. Those people are not going to have a lot of people they think very highly of.
