Older men with younger woman
More success, more sophistication, a great sense of self — the benefits of dating an older man are as blatant as they are numerous.
T here is a maximum of times a woman can get annoyed about what a French intellectual thinks about her arse. It was a hard-left version of Jordan Peterson that was, if you can possibly imagine such a thing, even more annoying.
