Q:I have a huge crush on Benedict Cumberbatch and I haven’t a clue as to why. I am 61 years old. I understand the age difference and even age-appropriate Sir Paul McCartney keeps getting married and never answers my letters. On a scale of one to ten what are my chances of dating Sherlock Holmes? Seriously, I go faint and numb just watching the PBS “Sherlock” reruns…of course that might be my medications inteacting, but it feels like love or at least late-life lust. I thought I’d be much more reasonable at this age, but nooooooo!
A: I had to Google Benedict to find out who he was and I must say I have no idea why you’re attracted to him either because he is a funny looking fella, but hey whatever floats your boat. Be happy that at 61 you still get sexually aroused. Your chances are slim to none of dating Benedict, but that’s cool too! You’re a certified Cougar and I hope I’m like you in 30 more years. Now go out there and get under or on top of someone. Don’t forget to practice safe sex ;)
