Can a younger man with an older woman work?
Can this forbidden love that has no name last?
Is it realistic to think it might.

What are the hurdles?

Societal disapproval- flying in the face of convention and tradition.

Self imposed limitations that causes insecurities and doubts.

Thanks for the clip, and your point about infatuation is an important one to consider. Upon reflection, I think I was infatuated with her.

I believe I have a son 25 years younger than me. I just don´t think that would ever feel right personally. I´d have to be a mother to his friends. :61:

I am against age gap in dating and relationships. And why? Because of experience. I was 19 years old when I met my ex and he was 45. It was an emotional, physical and mentally abusive relationship. He was from another generation and a lot older and set in his " ways" that didn´t coincide with mine. Even though I was considered legally an adult. I still had the mind of a teenager because I was in between the age of transitioning from adolescence to adulthood. And well things didn´t go well between me and him is all I´m gonna say about that.

It certainly can be a fun time too. Many romantic spontaneous trysts with younger men in my experience. Unfortunately it was always a passing relationship for me I found. I do still have fond memories of those lovers though.

You are speaking on a subject that I have been dealing with for the past 20 years. When I met my husband, I was 48 and he was 25. We met while working at the same professional building. At that time, I was dating a man 17 years older. Six months later, I broke up with the older guy. Then the younger guy asked me out to dinner. I didn´t think he thought of me as anything but a friend, but I turned him down because I didn´t want to get involved with someone I knew from work location, and I honestly didn´t know if he was attracted to me. Two months later, he asked me out again. I figured that I didn´t have anything to lose. We had a wonderful evening out as friends, and when the evening was over, and he didn´t try to kiss me, I knew we were just friends. But, I decided to feel it out, and gave him a kiss to know for sure. He reciprocated, but was a gentleman, and didn´t proceed any further. Two months later, he proposed to me, and we got married 4 months after that. That was almost 20 years ago. He is now 46 and I am 68.

I don´t think age is the issue here. We had a personality compatibility test done on us, and it showed that there was at least a 20 years age difference, but the funny part was that it showed that he was the older one, and I the younger one. It also said that our relationship would never last. LOL.

My oldest daughter is 5 weeks older than he, and her husband is almost 2 years older than my husband. I am the same age as his mother. I had been married 2 other times, had 2 grown daughters, and 3 grandkids (now 5), and he had never been married.

He is a Capricorn. I am a Libra. We couldn´t be more different in all ways possible. We also have a cultural difference as his family are from India (and wanted to get him a wife through an arranged marriage; but he said the heck with that long before he met me).

13 years ago, we were interviewed by a magazine here called LA Weekly. Here is a link to it.…

We also have been interviewed on several tv and radio shows about our successful "cougar" relationship. I have also written a book, called "Living Happily Ever After with a Younger Man?" I explain everything you could ever want to know about this May-December relationship. I never published it out of respect for my husband´s parents. But, if you really want to know, I am happy to email you a copy. Then you can find out first hand what life has been like for us.

The bottom line is it is not about age. We don´t look at each other and even see the age difference. It comes down to several points, all of which are true for everyone of any age. One is compatibility, and how well you understand someone who is not you. Next is how mature both of you are (psychologically and emotionally and spiritually). But, the most important area of discussion is who both of you are as people. Good people who find other good people, will have a successful relationship.

Sorry this is so long, but I have been dealing with this issue for the past 20 years. We are both mature, spiritual, very educated, kind, good people. No Oedipus Complex here. dian van patten singh

Thank you. We are blessed, and he never wants me to say goodbye because it is too final. So instead, we just say "mon amour". He´s cute, has a great body, is the top expert in his line of work, and came with no baggage. That´s one of the benefits of being with a younger man. I had enough for both of us.

Trust me. It will happen if you are sincere and your inner light can connect in a way that transcends everything. I put a message out to the Universe and just simply asked for a great guy to come into my life. I got a reply back almost immediately, and they told me that shortly I would meet that one special guy. I asked if there would be a name, and they said "Jay". 5 minutes later, I arrived at my office, and a new person arrived who was renting an office in my suite. I said "Hi, I am Dian." He said "I am Jai" (pronounced Jay). I found it too hard to believe. We became friends, and 6 months later, we became more. I told him a year later about how the Masters had chosen him. Here we are 20 years later, and happily married.

Everyone has his path down here... mine isn´t easy, even if I´m sincere and do my best, but nevermind... I hope something good will happen, if not, maybe in the next life :1:

Thank you for the advice.

Hi Pixel,

I am not an astrologer, like it seems a lot of people are on here (and some comments are over my head; but it is a learning experience). I have read Tarot cards, on and off, for the past 40 years. I combine my life experience, with my education (Masters in Psych), and follow my spiritual guides. I truly believe that you will find your perfect soul mate. Life is not easy, and that is for sure. I have had so much tragedy and poverty throughout my younger years. But, I held on to the hope that the second half of my life would be my reward. This will be your gift too. I am also a Reiki healer, and I will be sending love and healing energy your way.

I agree. I would never date anyone in my daughter´s age group. It´s like dating one of your kid´s best friends. It´s really weird to me.
