No Daddy Issues Here...

I was married for over 2 decades to a man my age. I suddenly found myself in the dating world.

I surprisingly find myself gravitating to older men. Since my separation I have dated all over the spectrum, including a man 18 years my junior. 2 have been my age and the rest older. Currently I am seeing a man 20+ years my senior.

He looks a bit older than his age and I look about 10 years younger than my age, so we probably appear 30 years apart. His male friends, of course, love the idea. Their wives are a different story. I don't really care how it looks or how anyone feels about it. He is a good man and I love my time with him.

One of the amazing things about our relationship is that he allows me to be me. I have never had this freedom to be me in any relationship before.

I joke with friends about having daddy issues, not the case though. I think I simply have a wisdom fetish...

Wisdom fetish!! You are so right on!!

Wisdom fetish! I like that. Add this older man :-).

I think age shouldn't ever be a factor in a relationship, as long as its legal of course LOL. We are drawn to who we are drawn to and shouldn't ever have to apologize for it. you both make each other happy, and if the friends wives dont approve...tell them tough ****! I have seen how happy you make each other and at the end of the day, thats the ONLY thing that matters!
