I know that not all older men out there are in the "creepy old guy" category, even if they are infatuated with younger women. I have high respect for those men who outwardly proclaim to like younger women, but do not prey upon them. While we are so lucky to live in a time of ever growing tolerance, pedophiles - specifically those that DO NOT act on their feelings and impulses- are the most stigmatized group, and in America, get very little opportunity to be honest about their feelings with anyone, including professional therapists. There are wonderful relationships that blossom with seemingly unconquerable age differences. Love is out there for all of us.A.N: Please realize that this story was written two years ago, and I wasn't able to express myself as clearly as I am able to now. Though I am reluctant to change or delete any of my stories, I have made a few changes to this one today (4-27-12) to hopefully clarify my point of view.
