Well, on one hand you can't fault them just because they're old and still want to be loved and have romance. And then again, I found something about him a little less than charming. If he were my option, I would just stick with some cats.
Well, I hear you on that. The creepy factor is not that they're old, but rather that they really don't know each other. This whole romance seems a bit contrived, and he seems WAY too into it. I think you're right, the cats are a better option
