My hair says "Im up for whatever;" but my glasses say "Only if Im home by 10". This makes for some unique relationship conflicts, but we both seem to be up for the challenge. EDIT: I originally posted this in , and we were married in ! The older ladies would always remind me of my youth and inexperience. They would reminisce about their own younger days, how little they knew, how much they changed.
Can it work between older woman and younger man by 20 years?
What It's Like Dating a Man Twice Your Age - Thrillist
I'm 23, and I'm very quickly falling for a guy who is 20 years older than me. We used to work together; he held the same job as my boss, but I was never his direct report. There's always been chemistry between us, but now that I'm at a new company we've been meeting each other regularly as friends and the chemistry just grows each time. I think the only reason we're holding back is because of the age difference. I know that's a big consideration, but I think this relationship is worth it.

My daughter just recently turned 25 and has been with her 45 year old boyfriend for almost a year now. They got engaged last week and plan to marry in 6 months. We are very open and she would tell me.
Three years ago, Mike and I met at a coworker's engagement party. I knew that the guests at the party were going to be younger than me; I work as an occupational therapist at a hospital and most of the coworkers I'm closest with are the ones in their 20s and early 30s. I've always tended to get along better with people a decade or so younger than me—peg it to my being single with no kids as well as a why not attitude that led me to spend my own 20s and 30s bouncing from guy to state to job. At the party, I flirted with the handsome man making a rum and coke in the kitchen, asking if he could whip one up for me, too. He obliged, and as we clinked glasses, I guessed he was in his early 30s.
