MILF, GM, DIY, FYI, LOL, ROTFL

When does a woman become a MILF? Now, the answer should be obvious here right? Like, when they have kids. But to me it's not. I actually had a discussion about this with my lunch friends. They are mostly men, one is gay, but today I had lunch with all four of them. I was the only woman present and bf wasn't there to scare off any sexually related comments. I don't mind. I like talking about this stuff!

The question was "what's a MILF?" Ok, remember I live in Italy, they're Italians. So I explained it to them: "Mother I'd Like to Fuck". But to them it's completely different. There's an age group that they allot to MILFs. Anyone between 35 and 55 (if I'm remembering correctly). Then there's GM, that would be Grandmother, of course, from 55 up.

What I'm not sure of here, is whether this is a distortion that the Italians have on the slang language or whether this distortion is widely used.

These abbreviations get widely used in chat use, and perhaps they get overused by some (myself included), but I find that the meanings do change, have changed and are changing. They loose their original significance at some point. There are times where I find myself writing "LOL" and then actually having to specify that something made me laugh out loud. I shouldn't need to do that. LOL means exactly that. But it is used almost as a smiley face, or to let people know something is funny rather than to say that you're actually laughing out loud. Is the same thing happening with MILF?

I agree with the definition as you described it. To qualify as a MILF, a woman needs to be over mid-30s.

There are plenty of young women who are mothers and are hot. They're just hot young women.

I draw the line at GILFs.

MILF said...

Mature = 35-55
Granny - 55+
MILF = has children

Simple as that :o)

I always wondered about that. Do they have to be 30 and up or if a 21 year old is a mother, does she count as a MILF? Who decides these things?! I think generally though, it applies more so to the 30+ crowd.

Leonhart: but the whole word is MOTHER... I don't get why you'd exclude young mothers.

Milf... It seems easy, but I'm not sure it is that easy. People perceive it differently as you noticed Leonhart did.

Amorous Rocker: Exactly my debate! As MILF pointed out it probably does refer to mothers who are over a certain age. But consider Britney Spears for example, she designed herself a MILF shirt. She's young (or was at the time) is she a MILF?

That's interesting...never thought of it in that way. But when someone mentions 'MILF', I think of it as someone in their mid-30s+. The term MILF comes with a certain level of wordly experience. To think of it loosely, I'd say they are akin to cougars with kids!

P.S. LOL is misinterpreted a lot. My friend used to sign off all her letters with LOL. I asked her "what's so funny?" and she was like "Oh, it means 'lots of love'". Argh!

Cande said...

Eden, hah, Yeah Cougars with kids. That's a good way of putting it. Worldly experience is also good. But I guess this excludes mothers in their mid to late 20s.

Lots of love... I'd never heard that one before, Good to know though, maybe I've been reading it wrong all along!

the eternal list said...

GILF is the ultimate prize, but that's just me

yes, i suppose the MILF must have a certain amount of life experience, can't simply be any mother. i look at britney spears, and she just isn't the same as the TOYOTA MILF, y'know?

peace

Cande said...

GILF would be a Girl I'd Like to Fuck I'm guessing, right?

Yeah I can see what you mean. The Toyota MILF is definitely wiser than Britney! hah

I've always thought that MILF only applied to Mothers because their was a predisposition to think of mothers in a non-sexual way. They are "mothers" first, right? But, by being sexy enough they overcame the kid problem and became a MILF, as if a taboo was being broken. "Sure, she's a mom, but I'd like to do her anyway...."

For the record, there are few things sexier than a beautiful woman who gets pregnant, and sexy nursing moms? Don't get me started. It's not quite to fetish level, but young moms/new moms, are smoking hot, if they started out hot. Ugly people who get pregnant just get uglier, sorry, I didn't design the world, I just run it.

As for older women who are hot, but not moms, they are just hot, but don't get their own acronym. I do like the CWK designation, "Cougars with Kids" has a nice ring to it.

And GILF? Please, go talk to someone, soon. Psychiatry has made great strides lately.

GILF - Grandmothers.......

MILF is definitely mother I'd like to... If you want to talk about hot young girls, just call them HYGs, or something, for goodness sake lol (yes, it does mean laughing out loud). What's happening to our old internet language? Just ten years on, and it's being changed... And GILFs? Yes, grandmothers I'd like to... Yes, my mistress is a GILF (and so am I: Grandfather...) Sex doesn't end at 40, you know, us grey hairs enjoy ourselves hugely :))

Cande said...

Noooooo! Haha you guys have it all wrong. GILF is a Girl I'd like to... GM is a grandmother.... And yes, Kevin, sex doesn't stop when you're 40.
