Comment on Older Women Younger Men: Should They Date? by SOL.
I have been dating a man 11 and 1/2 years my junior for a little over 2 years. We have had our ups and downs. He was a friend and instrumental in helping me heal from a painful separation from my husband 15 years my senior. We met when he was 25, and I was 38, The love, strength, respect and admiration that I got from the 25 year old, was more than my husband had given me in the 8 years of our relationship, the young man gave it to me in one month. The young man pursued me, his kiss alone said more to me than the 2 carot rock my husband gave me. The question here is how can someone so young, give so much with so little, and some one so mature give so little with so much? I was never open to the younger man older woman relationship until I met Dan, but now I truly understand, that love is something that is not meant to be confined by tradition or trends, love simply is, and for the Mothers out there opposed to their sons loving an older woman, I say: I would rather see my son happy with an older woman who loves him and can meet his wants, needs and desires, than miserable with a young one who drags him down with her needs, refuses to understand his needs, and demands that he exists soley to make her happy. I too have a son, and I love him enough to know that I cannot impose on him my ideals on love, he understands what makes him happy. Who am I to judge?
