Very well said!
My s/o is ten years older than me, and we have a wonderful relationsship!
Unfortunately, most peeps think that he's a lot older than me, b/c he looks
older than he is, and I don't look as old as I am
(he's 60, and I'm almost 50). Peeps who don't know us always mistake him as being my dad - which doesn't really bother me - but I think it bothers my s/o.
Whenever anyone makes a comment about our age difference, I always try to lighten the mood by teasing him and saying, "Now you KNOW you just love having some 'arm candy'!" He always laughs, and says, "You're darn tootin', Darlin'!" By saying that, his feelings aren't as hurt, and it boosts his ego!
I hate to see him get his feelings hurt..
I have to honestly say that the relationship I have with my s/o is the best one I've ever had.
I can't say it's entirely due to our age difference, but I do believe that older men are usually more mature. A lot of it also has to do with what Swamp Witch posted in her response above..
