I find it very unsettling to watch a man that is clearly pushing sixty to still be trying to fit in with the young crowd. I know it's a free country and people are allowed to behave the way they want to. It gets a bit humorous to watch a grown man say things like "wat up", and "girlfriend" in his sentences.

He is an openly gay man that is a wonderful person. He shares some really interesting stories of the way he met his partner. Those are great stories.

She was saying something good those are words for nice things. I responded cute and adorable are too I wouldn't mind you saying that next time.

When does the slang stop, are you adult enough to tell someone to stop? I am
