I’m an “older” gent (over 65) and I’ve recently started a relationship with a beautiful woman who’s a lot younger than me. Okay, so she’s 26 – but she’s a very mature 26, and I’ve never really felt a day over 40 myself, so it isn’t an issue for either of us.
It’s wonderful to share my life experiences with a young girl, equipping her with wisdom she wouldn’t otherwise have. For instance, the blank look on her face when I describe what life was like before the internet. Plus, I have the joy of sharing the approval number on my MasterCard with her. And in return she’s shown me how to text.
The trouble is, friends and family members (my son and daughter in particular) keep making snide comments about the age difference. They don’t seem to believe that two people born almost 40 years apart could possibly have anything in common. How can I convince them that this really is true love?
Age of Reason
Dear Age of Reason,
Of course it’s true love! What healthy, red-blooded young girl wouldn’t be turned on by cheesy skin folds, a leaky bladder and hair sprouting from every body part except the head?
Lots of young girls willingly throw open their arms for older gents like yourself. And not just their arms. She benefits from his maturity and wisdom, while he benefits from her suppleness and limited vocabulary. In nature, it’s what’s known as a symbiotic relationship – where each benefits the other. Like a scavenging bird eating the nits off the back of an old donkey.
Who do these people think they are anyway, passing their self-righteous judgement on your choice of partner? Sounds to me like your children are just worried about losing their inheritance.
As these legions of men like your good self get older and older and the girls they choose get younger and younger, it will eventually lead to a unique new development – changing each other’s nappies. Now THAT’S true love.
With Kind Regards,
