I am! He’s 39 and I’m 46. There are 6.5 years between us to the day. I don’t think most people realize that there is an age gap between us. He lost his hair early and no one ever guesses my age close to what it actually is.

We’ve been together for 13+ years, but this last year it’s been like falling in love all over again and things are better than ever. I never expected for that to happen.

My Fiance is 37 and I’m weeks away from 53. He pursued me like no other – and I so sarcastic at first. It seemed silly that we could have anything in common – I was divorcing after a 25 yr marriage, & have 2 kids. He’s never been married. He’s become an amazing dad-like figure for my teenage daughter, and truly the greatest, most loving partner I can imagine. Never thought this would happen for me! Here we are in Mexico Dec 2010:

@lorie:  “He pursued me like no other.” OMG, finally someone else feeling like this! I am 54 and he just turned 44, and for the longest time I tried to keep things at a friendship level but as you noted, he literally pursured me. He recently presented me with a ten-page love letter, I mean like WOW!  I am at work so I have no pics of the two of us together on my work computer but here is a pic of Fiance I had posted previously.

 

By The Way, I LOVE this thread. I feel so much better now! LOL

@KT808:  I struggled with the age difference for a long time and sometimes I still worry about marrying him and being so much older. I told him, “You’ll get older, but I’ll just get OLD”. He isn’t the least bit concerned. He has MS, and while it hasn’t debilitated him much at all since his diagnosis over 10 years ago, he worries about me having to care for him if things change as he gets older. So we truly are in it for better or worse, and in sickness or in health. This is a good topic because I think we face many detractors as the “older” woman whereas older men with younger women is just accepted. Considering how we age differently, I think it makes much more sense for older women to be with younger men. Congrats on going with it & not fighting it anymore!

My man is 28 and I am 43.  I was so worried about our age differenece that I almost said no when he asked me but all I had to do was look in his eyes and I knew it was right.  This thread/blog has made me feel tons better about our situation.  His family is great they accepted me without any reservation.  My family had a harder time accepting him cause he was so young and looks even younger.  He is more of a man than many of the older men I dated. I am so happy.

I will be turning 40 in May and him 30 in June.  So he is 10 years youngers than me.  It bothered me in the beginning but we mesh and are so happy together the years dont bother me anymore.  Plus his family and i get along so well and that makes me happy.  They have accepted me and my kids with open arms.

I love this thread! I just turned 40, and he’s 33. Staying out of the sun for years has paid off, and I have fewer wrinkles. 🙂

I just posted a similar thread and wish I would have seen this one first!  I’ll be 41 and he’ll be 26 when we get married in September.  I’m divorced and have a 17 year old daughter, and when we first got together we didn’t officially call it “dating” we called it “enjoying each other’s company.”  Until we decided we never wanted to stop enjoying each other’s company!  15.5 years difference and I’ve never been happier.  We started dating when I was 37, he was 22 and my daughter was 14.
