Sometimes I joke around about being a "cougar" because I'm 23 and not married.
Most guys I meet at BYU-I are 22 and younger.
Actually just in general most guys I meet these days are younger then me. 
This summer I'm working at the library doing the Children's Summer Reading Program and the theme for this week was "Once upon a time." 
So I donned my grad dress and pretended to be a princess.
Let me just say, I wish I got to be a princess everyday at the reading program. 
All the little girls would just stare at me with a little smile on their face. Some would come up and tell me how beautiful I was and that they loved my dress.
Everyone always wanted "the princess" in their group or to sit next to them during the craft. 
Now here comes the cougar part. Today there were 2 boys ages 8 and 9 that just LOVED me. 
They hardly left my side the whole time. One of them said he wanted to be a prince so I told him he could be my prince and he was all over that. He kept saying that I was his princess and that I would one day be his wife. They both told me that they thought I was beautiful (actually one of them said I was sexy and the one that was my "prince" said "I wouldn't say that about her, that's not good")
Then my prince kept saying how much he really wanted to marry me. He kept taking his "magic" jelly beans and wishing on them that he was 25. He asked how old I was and when I told him I was 23 he was like WHY DO YOU HAVE TO BE SO OLD?! You'll be 33 by the time I'm 19 and can move out of the house. I just want to get married so we can go on dates and have babies. It'll be so much fun!
Seriously people I was dying with laughter inside. He seemed soooo serious about all this and that it would actually be a possibility. I told him I would wait for him and he told me that I should and if I could please stay young. (It's a good thing I already look younger then I am)
And I guess if I don't get married in the next 10 years I have a willing candidate. That just brings my heart so much comfort.... :)
Welp that's the end of my story. I'm sure I'll have more as he comes to the program every wednesday.
