As for me, I'm still looking for the right man for me, and I'm open to some range of age difference in either direction. Yes, I think relationships between older and younger people can work if there is compatability.
The people who claim to find them disgusting seem to be inexperienced about the infinite variety of loving adult relationships.
the universe brings people together when they least expect it and often in the most unconventional way. tomorrow that person may be you and you never ever imagined it could happen to you. Its by no means easy having to deal with people and how they stare. I noted on the 'I love a much older MAN' site, that the comments were nowhere near as insulting! My partner was 19 years younger than me and we were happy together for over two years. to the people posting nasty comments, are you in relationships yourselfs?
No one can be the one to say who one can love and who one cannot love. If you tuely love each other dont let society dictate who you should love or be loved by. his family were a little shocked, so were mine, but not overly so. So do the problems, no matter what the age difference. People can NOT help who they fall in love with, people today are so judgemental, it could happen to YOU.
Its wrong, dont care how young you think you look or feel... What makes it easier to handle and deal with is to confront the incident(s) and "as-is" it, if you will. I had been out of a relationship for more than 10years and it came as such a suprise to myself and him how we felt for one another.
If it was my son I would make your life a living HELL!!!! You should do this until you feel relived and feel quite good about things I dont think its that easy and one should not be so judgemental in such situations. We have had our fareshare of ups and downs but we are still going stong and going on for 3years now.
