Don’t embrace any rigid rule about age differences. Don’t be fooled into thinking that just because someone is older, he or she isn’t very sexual.
Assess Your Respective Sexualities Though I find that most people overemphasize the importance of sex and sexual attraction, intimacy is a factor worth considering.
Take threesomes, for example: fun in theory, but not so much when the wrong group makes things a ménage à disaster.
Even though this guy and I were 25 years apart, we had a lot in common. I didn't know then that our age gap would define the relationship.
Nowadays, at the ripe old age of 27, I often find myself getting involved with chaps in their forties or fifties. They won’t believe you actually fancy them Unless your would-be squeeze is made in the Rex Manning mould, he will be staggered that anyone is taking an interest in him at his time of life – less still a bona fide fox like you.
Fortunately, I enjoy looking after window-boxes and griping about how everything on TV is rubbish these days. Such is the premium our shallow society places on unlined faces.
We worked in the same profession, had similar interests, and shared common philosophical views. So what if he was wrinkly, in all the places you might expect? There was zero jealousy on both sides, and I never saw him check out another woman -- due to him being satisfied, of course, but also him being well-seasoned in how to respect the opposite sex. Instead of just getting a hit of Botox, he was set on partying to prove it to himself and everybody else.
I grew up the only child of older parents (who are also 10 years apart), and often felt like an awkward old lady trapped inside a teeny-bopper’s body. I admit, I wasn’t as physically attracted to him as I had been to other partners. Have you ever seen a girl with a hideous boyfriend and thought, “Seriously, how the f$*k did he pull that off? Either he's just a nice friggin’ dude; or being with him boosts her self-confidence. The Olsen twins both have boyfriends 20 years their senior. I got that; but even though I knew there was no future, I didn’t cut it off completely. A 50-year-old playing 30 grew past its prime for me.
