In Response to RE: Intimacy by jcofla
I'm a woman of a certain age which I will not reveal. If anyone wants to know, he can pay attention to clues dropped in my postings. Anyway...an older man, to me, is someone mentally, emotionally, physically, spiritually & chronologically out of sync with me. Age is just a number. My late husband was 7 years older than me, but in many ways he was younger in thought & deed than I was. I couldn't allow him to put me to shame, so I accepted the challenges that he presented and created some of my own.
Both of us, professionally and personally, had fairly frequent interactions with people much younger than ourselves and counted many young people among our friends...and no, I'm not talking about friends of our children. I think that just being ourselves, being open-minded and sensitive to issues of importance to younger friends created strong bonds. Our children, now adults in their 40's with children of their own, have transitioned well and are independent and successful...but it was (and is) so much fun to interact with them as adults!
Who said "age is a function of mind over matter...if you don't mind, it doesn't matter?"
