Stevie Nicks Shares My Thoughts On Dating Significantly Older Guys

“What if I fall in love with somebody and they die?”

Finally, somebody who shares my fears!

Everybody else seems to think I’m a total basket case when I say this but let’s get real, when you marry someone a decade or two older, they are much more likely to die way before you. Of course, we can never know how long any of us will really live, but these are things to think about (well, something for neurotic folks such as myself to excessively hand-wring over, anyway). In her first Rolling Stone cover feature since 1981, Nicks told the magazine she’s had some horror experiences dating younger guys, but that she’s not so fond of dating older dudes either, because of the tiny little problem of death. She added, before laughing, that guys her own age aren’t so great either.

“They wanna go out with somebody that’s 25. That has been going on since the Bible, and I haven’t even read the Bible, but I know that. So what am I gonna do, compete with that? I’m not a competitor. So I don’t even wanna be in that situation. I’ve narrowed it down to nobody.”

Sounds perfect to me! [Rolling Stone] [Image via Getty]
