Could You Fall For A Much Younger Man?

“Mine was 17 years younger. It was like having another kid. In 11 years he couldn’t be the man he thought he was. I knew too much and he didn’t know enough. It was fun but not worth the time and effort. So, the answer is hell no.”

Most women could, and if both parties were past 40, it might work. I have known relationships that worked beautifully and you couldn’t tell there was even an age difference. An aunt married her best friend’s son, some 30 years younger. Their marriage was wonderful. At church a man told me he was 25 years younger than his wife and married to her for 25 years at the time You couldn’t tell there was a difference in age there either.”

It’s all hot and great and new in the beginning, until reality starts to set in with health issues, etc. Pretty soon the guy gets the ‘This is Not What I Signed Up For’ train of thought.”

“Already love my son. Don’t need another.”

Ack. No. Perhaps it’s good for them, but I have no desire to ever be in a relationship with a man who is younger than some of my clothing. Ack.”

    I’ve been seeing a man 20 years younger for about 6 months and I’m quite smitten. Though I’m not planning on marrying anyone, I love my life just as it is!

    My husband and I met in a Master’s Program and I ignored him for the first week. He wasn’t in my age range.

    However, he was the coolest, techy-est, most edgy guy in the class and I have eccentric tastes. And…this 25-year old kept sitting next to me, talking to me, and joking with me. I laughed so hard from his jokes. Turns out we shared a lot of the same values, and tastes…with plenty of divergence, too.

    I was 43 at the time and newly divorced. Not looking to get married again…EVER!

    Did I mention he is Chinese from Hong Kong, 4″ shorter than me, 18 years younger than me, and I outweighed him by 30 lbs?

    All true. I’m curvy-slender, tall and of mixed European ancestry. Both of us Americans. We’re so different, but if you wear a blindfold and just listen to us…it’s clear we enjoy each other very much…and laugh a lot.

    We ended up being randomly grouped together for several project. Honest to God, it was truly random! I found out here how organized and responsible he is. It was exactly like dating a peer. We’re both first-born children in our families…so go figure.

    We’ve always related like peers. Although I have certainly educated him about stuff my generation knows, and he’s educated me about stuff.his generation nows, there was never any incestuous-driven stuff about us. Not our schtick. I’m a huge anime and manga fan thanks to him. He’s become a huge bourbon and wine connoisseur.

    There was never any age-related issues…except older men assuming he and I couldn’t possibly be together weren’t and chatting me up while he and I sat at a table. This was very odd. I set them straight. We loved the surprised looks.

    We met for tea and coffee on campus to discuss the projects, and ended up with some epic visits..and some work got done, too. Had it ever dawned on me that we were “dating” I would have run away screaming. My husband DID considered it dating…I just couldn’t wrap me head around it…so I didn’t engage my head at all about it; just went with the flow.

    So…after there months I kissed him and took the plunge, with great fear of rejection, but he has been so worth it. I knew I’d regret it the rest of my life it I didn’t try. My family loves him and my nephew, who are his age, think he’s so cool. His coolness has rubbed off on me.

    Very soberly, we never expected it to last, yet we loved what we’d found.

    After five years of living together, we got married. He had to talk me into it.
    Best decision I have made in my life. We’ve been together for 10 years this year.
