There is a reason that most couples today do not have a significant age difference. I found that with younger women, I felt attracted but bored.
If you're at the end of this list, what on Earth could you have in common with someone near the beginning? When my divorce was final, I went out of my way to date women of different ages ranging anywhere from twenty-two to fifty-three years old.“The success or failure of relationships and marriages comes down to a number of interacting factors, and age is just one of them,” says psychotherapist Brendan Madden, former director of Relationships Ireland.“Age gaps work when the gap increases the likelihood of kindness and generosity, and work against the relationship when they don’t,” says. “An older partner may be more appealing if the younger partner can’t find these traits in their peer group.” That could explain why 57-year-old Stephen Fry recently married a man three decades younger, 27-year-old Elliott Spencer. Whenever we spoke, our age difference seemed to melt away. A month prior to the end of my internship, my father, a retired Nassau County, N. detective confronted Tom outside a local hotel early on a dark, dreary Saturday morning. My mom and dad couldn't believe their teenage daughter had spent the night with a much older, very married man. It was easy to forget about the 25 years that separating us while I was busy daydreaming about Tom's deep voice, hearing about his crazy, drug-fueled life in the 1970s and seeing the authority and respect he commanded wherever he went.
