having an older partner creates problems for women? A 27 year old woman says, "I recently became involved with a man 18 years older than me
with 41 year age gap), and it is
the most intense relationship that I have ever been in! I have always
liked older men, but this is the largest age difference for me yet...and I love it! It

at the time was 46 and I loved every minute of it. I used to greatly appreciate the fact that an older man was more interested in you

pleasure. The friendship, the attention, and the maturity of an older man were a treasure to me. I have a sister and many cousins who are married to older
men and it works just fine."
