What are some cool phrases the young folk are saying today to stay current when dating much younger people?

How do you recover with when they ask: “What’s a Bon Jovi?”

As long as you don’t refer to facebook as ”the facebook” you should be fine.

@athenasgriffin I always refer to it as ”the facebook”. I’m 26.

Isn’t Jon Bon Jovi still an actor?

@incendiary_dan In an ironic fashion, I hope.

When insulting someone be sure to call them a “douche”.

What do you mean “the facebook”? You mean “the myspace”, don’t you?

Actually, given some of the recent threads, the idea of “young people” dating “much younger people” seems a bit… creepy. And I’m speaking as a “creepy old man” whose last relationship (short as it may have been) was with a woman 19 years younger. We kidded that she was in kindergarten after I started my first “real, adult job”. We still do, in fact.

Just remember, and repeat after me: “Mairzy doats and dozy doats and liddle lamsy divie.”

Just be yourself. If she (or he) was concerned with the age difference, she’d just go date someone who was younger.

And yes, you should call people douches. Also douchebags, cocksuckers, assfuckers, and my new favorite, soyfuckers (though, technically, that last one is directed at vegans).

@Imadethisupwithnoforethought According to UrbanDictionary, it means “Smart and sexy. And in some cases, sexy and Mexican.” or is a cuter way of saying “sexy”. I have to look up slang All. The. TIME. on UrbanDictionary, as does all the other “young folk” I know. Don’t worry about not knowing all the slang; with internet culture, it moves too fast for even the youngest and hippest to always be up to date.

@Aethelflaed if you really want to be cool, use the word “douchecanoe.”

Aethelflaed's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard Well, now I want to go find someone who pisses me off just so that I can call them a douchecanoe.
