    27 Year Difference

    I'm in love with a man 27 years older than I.  He is divorcing, but I'm still in my unhappy marriage.  I feel like I'm a teenager with all the "I wonder if he likes me in that way" thoughts, and it's driving me nuts.  Common sense and enough life...

    My boyfriend is a brilliant,

    handsome, kind gentleman who is 40 years my senior. I feel like I can't talk to my friends about him without judgment. I'm so madly in love and I just want to talk about it.

    They Grey Area Between The Black And White

    Our Wonderful Connection

    We met each other in university. I went to tell him something and he said to me: „We have phoned, haven't we?“ I was thunderstruck because my surname is such a common one. Actually the phone call was a few months ago. He couldn't mean that, but he did. From the beginning I...

    Age Really Doesn't Matter.

    I'm a 19 year old girl and falling in love with a 41 year old man. It's so funny to say that because knowing me, the way I used to be, I would've never believed that I would even glance at someone that much older than me. My story began at work, he was a new manager. I was...

    A Whole Different Ball Game............

    I've posed this question before - does an age difference really matter when you're 52 and he's 74? My favorite answer was "not until you're 84 and he's 105" lmao. I don't understand the attraction at all. It's not sexual - it's so much more - don't get me wrong, he is incredibly...

    and I'm 18. We started talking a few months ago, he's a musician, well known in my country. I just messaged him telling him how good his band's music is and that's where it all started. I was surprised that he was even interested in talking to me. He's really cool, and I always...
