    Younger Half Of A Great Relationship

    I have just started dating a man who is 23 yrs older than myself. I never imagined I would date someone so much older than me, or be so happy with someone so quickly. So far everything is going great. My only concern is that I am a mere 18 days older than his daughter. I have not...

    I am a 61-year-old man in a relationship with a

    21-year-old female. Not only is there the age difference, but I am a former Sixties person with a deep interest in growth and spirituality. She might be characterized as coming out of a Scene/alternative-music-aficionado background. So there are cultural differences as well...

    I have always wondered

    why modern society frowns upon May/December relationships. Unless you are a "rock star", or 'famous actor or actress, in which case you can date anyone of any age, and then its ok, for some reason. Although I myself am not currently in one, I have dated women both much older and...

    A Painful But Enlightening Experience In Love And Relationships

    I am in a Lesbian May/December relationship

    with a 38-year age gap. I am 21 and she is 59. We met at work when I was just 20, yet her age was a mystery to me. I could have sworn she was 44 (she looks amazing for her age). Despite the large age gap, her and I have many commonalities and share similar core values. Her son...

    Mr. December

    I'm a 20 year old woman currently engaged to a 41 year old man. I love him very much. We met when I was 19 and almost everything is great but I'm worried that our outlooks on life aren't the same sometimes. Anyone else have that?

    I'm 50, She's 28

    I'm 50, and a 28-year-old woman I have met seems very interested in me romantically. I can't act on it, though. I'm convinced there isn't a future with such a wide disparity in age. I'm hoping for a good way to help her understand, but I don't think I can find a way and fear...

    I Don't Quite Understand It...

    I don't get it. 4 years ago my husband and I divorced; he ended up cheating on me with a younger woman he met in school (which I was supporting him in). I was 46, and he was 31. Moving out of my dream home after almost losing it was devastating; going from a 4 story victorian...
