Could you fall in love with a much younger gentleman?

“I think the question is: Should you, not could you?  Any person can fall in love with someone significantly older or younger than they are. Should you pursue it? Tricky question. The age gap is huge and that takes a lot of hard work, every day, if it’s going to work.”
Julie Benjamin

“I know a couple like this. They have been married 30 years. He is in his early 50 and she in her early 80s. She is a major burden to him with her health. It is just as a child taking care of an elderly parent. So see, it is not all about the older woman raising another child.”
Lynda Ward Barrett

“I met my fiancé when he was 21. We are 23 years apart. We have been together for four years. We are compatible in every way, he is the love of my life. We kept our relationship quiet for the first year and even separated for several months to try and move on. Love is love. When I look at him I see the man I love and that’s all. Our families never gave us a hard time. I am a very blessed woman.”

I’ve dated younger men and it’s ok. But 25 years is such a big difference. They’d have no frame of reference for your memories, music, history etc.”

“I was married to a man five years younger than I am. We were together for 11 years, married for three. It was exhausting, like raising another child. Good for her, but I’ll pass.”
