WonderfulI 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 an enormously stigmatized group, and specifically in America, get very little opportunity to be honest about their feelings with anyone, including professional therapists without fear of legal repercussion.
I believe there are wonderful relationships that blossom despite seemingly unconquerable differences, age being only one of them. 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 (7-08-14) to hopefully clarify my point of view.
