He is the best thing I ve ever had in my life. He is so genuine, caring, loving, and is so in love with me and I with him. We talk, laugh, watch Netflix together, listen to music and everything about us is fun. We ve had serious talks about his family, life, and there is nothing we don t feel comfortable with. I originally had told him I was a lot as well, as I thought what would someone that age want with someone my age. After over a year and knowing how attached we were to each other, I finally told and shared with him who I really was. He was so understanding at this point and so in love with who he met and talked with for all those months, he never thought anything of it. He had fallen in love with me and didn t care about age.
So I light up. Jake walks away from us, crosses a bridge to the other side of the canal. He gets on his motorcycle, revs the engine dramatically, and starts to drive away without a helmet. We all yell to him, 8775 What the fuck are you doing? 8776 I offer to get his leather jacket and helmet out of my car where they were locked up, but he replies, 8775 Don 8767 t bother! 8776 and drives away. In the rain, on the freeway, in Los Angeles. In a tee shirt. In 55 degree weather. To downtown LA. Because I smoked a cigarette. That 8767 s almost 75 miles!
I too am with a man 66 years I met him when he was 76 and he is now 78 🙂 since it was my 8 rd boyfriend I didnt give it much thought ( i went through it with the first one who was only 8 years He is the best partner I have ever had: cooking, helping out with my daughter, caring for both of us, and generally giving muuch love. I couldnt not mention the great sex life we have as well. I do not think much of the future but certainly we re all happy as is. There are plenty of men out there that deliiberately choose a more mature woman, and see YOU (and only you for that matter) as a great fit.
Hi! I appreciate your note and completely respect where you 8767 re coming from. We don 8767 t mean to use that term in a derogatory way we reference it because it 8767 s a buzz word widely used in pop culture. What 8767 s more, many of my clients consider themselves proud cougars! They wear the title with honor, and don 8767 t consider it derogatory at all. While I know that 8767 s not everyone 8767 s point of view, it does work for some people. Keep reading and commenting!
Mine wasn t neglectful but she was always focusing on my negative traits (consistently called me lazy, tubby, simultaneously scolding and fueling my negative attitude) while still teasing and prodding at me for not ever dating. Girls became this fantastical thing that I never thought I would get because I wasn t good enough. My teenage years bred a lot of unrequited romantic feelings. To make matters worse, I went to a small school and was heavily bullied about this.

Thank you so much! I ve been researching this question for several months as I keep getting asked out by guys. No one in my so called age range ever seems interested. I just turned 89 and am being pursued relentlessly by a 75 year old man. He continuosly tries to convince me to give this a chance. After watching the video. I think I get it now, and I might finally let him take me out on that date.
I first saw Mae I was 78. The second time I was 85. I knew she was older but I didnt know how old. We hit it off from the start. Her husband left her for a woman and I was married 8 months when I found Mae the second time. Our affair lasted 77 years til alshiemers claimed her mind. Her sister met me at her home a couple years earlier in Maes home and said we tried fixing her up with men her age but she turned them down now I understand wife knew Mae but never dreamed I was in bed with her every week.
My boyfriend definitely has some mommy issues, but truly is an incredible guy, so over the past 8 years I have helped him through his issues and helped him realize that I 8767 m not like every other woman in his life. It 8767 s been a struggle, and we 8767 ve definitely broken up a few times,but I 8767 m glad I stuck around because now I am with someone who understands how much I love him, and loves me back just as much for 8776 saving 8776 him.
I am 55 years old and until this year i was being carded when i went out. My BF is 77 and we are getting married, i dont care what anyone has to say. i pay my way and do not ask anyone to pay my bills, so no one should have anything to say about what i do, they like it or not is their problem not is short enjoy it. if you find someone that makes you happy go for it. enjoy life because it could end tomorrow.
Thank you very much for the in sight into this, I am a 97 yr old female who is married to a 69 yr old man with such a age difference we do get alot if stares and odd looks from people, all of which have to be closed minded people bacause love has no age, we are both very happy and very much in love yes chances are I will die first but as my husband so loving put it 8775 I would rather spend the next 75 yrs with you rather than a lifetime without you. What a loving mature awesome husband he is. Mature past his age.
Daniel: This is a little outside my scope, but the first thing I 8767 d recommend is to have an open and honest conversation with your girlfriend about your needs. Tell her how your sex life is making you feel, and explain that you 8767 d like the two of you to come up with a solution that works for both of you. Hopefully that gets the lines of communication flowing so the two of you can work toward a compromise!
I 8767 m 75 and in love with someone is 57. We 8767 ve never dated because of the age gap, but she 8767 s expressed the same level of attraction towards me. We both desperately want to be together, I have never loved anyone more. We 8767 re afraid however, that it is not wise for us to be together because the age gap will take its toll down the road. I don 8767 t know what to do, I am truly heartsick.
Love the answer. I m 65 years married to my love, who is 68 years than me. I had to move through some of my own inner questions Will he leave me when we get older? Why would he want to date me when he could date someone and Doesn t he want to be with someone who can give him kids? (My daughter was almost grown when we got together, and I was clear I wasn t wanting more babies.)
When I asked him this question, he gave me the same answer that was on the video. Since that time, I ve come to completely understand that what I bring to the table is so much more awareness, wisdom and confidence than I ever brought 75 years ago! So I get that that answer is very true.
Fabulous video thank you, Cherry!
Hi, i have connected only through hangouts messaging, with this really truly handsome 89 year old, i am 66, i look and feel We have been messaging for about a month, with really sexy type messaging and lovely photos. nothing exceeding. He always complements me and says i send him a lovely photo, as i do him and he would like us to spend time together, I have never heard his voice on the phone, nothing quite moving forward. I dont want him to feel i am the one pushing, as i feel that may push him away and always say for him to decide when ready even though i have hinted to him, and get know reply. The last week, after i sent him a lovely photo again, he said how truly lovely i were, and after that he seemed distant and dont know why, should i off pushed to see him or turned him away, or is this a fantasy and not reality for him. Thank you. Shirl.
I d like to say that I think you know inside what is right or wrong in this situation. Being attracted to someone happens, and so this time it happens to be a very man who if you were closer in age you would not hesitate, I get that. I think those saying you are lonely and deprived and to get a man have just never been in that position and don t know how else to cope with the idea.
I get really happy to find out so many older women are dating men because it lessens my competition. I 8767 m turning 97 this year and I absolutely love fucking and sucking 68-78 females. There is nothing more amazing for me to have such love and now with the internet, I get pictures practically whenever I want them. Thank you men for taking yourselves off the market and making my dreams that much easier to achieve.
I am attracted towards a lady who is like almost 6 – 7 years older than me. I am like in late 75s and she is in late 85s I believe.
I am really in love with her sweet voice and elegant personality. Her cuteness and politeness has just crushed me …. I am really in awe of her….
She is well educated, highly experienced and skillful in her profession like of Senior Management Cadre and I am like a junior level person in the organization. She regards high of me and has praised me couple of times but strictly for professional reasons since we never communicated so much on personal level as such as I also find it necessary to maintain decorum in the office.
I badly want to date her and want to befriend her but I am so much confused if I should approach her or not. BDW she is single according to my sources but I am not sure if she is seeing anyone or whether she would approve of this all craziness. I really don’t want to spoil my image in her eyes because But honestly I can’t help it and move on.. 🙁 I don’t know if I should seek some counseling …. Is it just an infatuation???
I 8767 m 99 and my fiancé is 85. year age difference. We have a lot in common and are the best of friends, and love each other deeply. At age 98 I got pregnant by accident and lost the baby. He wanted to try again but so far we haven 8767 t been successful. I feel bad about that and wish I could give him a child. We are getting married in 5 months and our families are really happy for us. Everyone says they can 8767 t tell the age difference by looking at us lol. I take good care of myself.
I 8767 ve had daddy issues most of my life but I got over it in one day after I reunited with him after a long while and realized what a terrible human being he is. He was not worth obsessing about. I decided to forgive him and move on (I had watched an Oprah show about forgiveness earlier). The rage and sadness I had about my dad disappeared almost immediately and I have been dad-issue free ever since. I guess the key is forgiving your awful parent and emptying your thoughts about him/her.
