“Jaw With John” – Never Too Late For Education

I am 54 years old and my problem is that I want to go to college, but because of my financial situation and other problems I am having trouble getting there.

I always wanted to continue going to school while I was younger but I have three children and two have had very serious health issues. My husband also has had quadruple-bypass open-heart surgery, so as you can see I have had a very busy life.

Is it too late for me? Please let me know what you think. — Hopeful

Dear Hopeful:

It’s never too late!

I had a class or two with a much older woman who was pursuing her undergraduate degree – she graduated by the way – and I don’t see why you can’t do the same. Just look at a guy like Larry Crowne in Larry Crowne. Yes, he’s fictional but I’m still going to make my point. He went back to school after getting fired from his department store job he had for years and years. And you know where he started? Community college.

Hell, even guys like Jeff Winger and Leonard Rodriguez went back to school to get degrees. So, if society is telling you anything it’s that since it’s happened in movies and television, it can happen to you.

“Jaw With John” – GILF Status Unlocked

I am 75 years old — active, attractive and feel like I’m 25.

I’m enrolled at a community college taking courses in ceramics. One of my fellow students has suddenly taken an interest in me. He is a nice guy and we share many interests. The problem is, I am not at all attracted to him. He has indicated he would like to become involved. I don’t want to hurt his feelings, but I do want him to know that we can never be more than friends. How do I do this diplomatically? — Alive and Kickin’

Dear Kickin’:

Maybe if you tried Ghost-ing with this nice guy you’d change your mind. Unless your ceramics class has a “Zero Ghost Tolerance Policy”.

And if even after Ghost-ing (if allowed) with him you still don’t have feelings for him, then you just need to tell him that you think he’s a nice guy but you don’t like him “that way.” It’ll hurt him a bit, but it will let him down easy.
