Dane Cook, 50, engaged to 23 yr old girlfriend

It’s hard not to be a little perturbed.  These are consenting adults, but ughh.. I mean come on.

Dane Cook, the comedian known best for telling long unfunny stories at college theaters, has gotten engaged to his girlfriend who is less than half his age.

The best part is Cook and 23 year old Kelsi Taylor have been dating since she was 18.   I guess he met her at one of the college tours. I swear I’m not bitter.  It’s just the old man, barely legal girl story is so old.

“I was so ready to ask her. I was completely zen about it,” Cook, 50, tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. “The evening of the proposal was incredibly beautiful, the weather was perfect, sunset was spectacular, and I was just quite simply very happy.”

He adds of the moment, “I was asking my best friend, the woman who I’ve shared some of the greatest times of my life with, to marry me so we can start the next chapter our of lives together. I was also thinking of how absolutely stunning she looked.”
