Now too long ago, I was in the town where my youngest went to college. It was a Friday night, and the sports bars and local coffee shops were full of couples. What made this observation notable was that many of these couples were made up of two young females.
There was hand-holding, and kissing, and arms around shoulders in the same manner hetero couples would be performing, so I have a reasonable expectation that my observations indicated coupledom.
I was very OK with this, I decided, for when a brace of young women bond with each other, that saves two young men from a life of marital servitude.
The other observation had to do with the general SMV of these young women -straight or not- as I perceived them. Some of these I wouldn’t have considered as dating possibilities when I was young. But now that I’m invisible to such young women, I note that they attain a certain desirability merely because they are so much younger than I.
