Dating a married man 20
The last time that had happened to me, I'd been in the back of my high school boyfriend's car. A few days after our kiss, he said he considered us a couple, and a week later, he told me he loved me.And despite the age difference and the fact that we disagreed on everything from movies to ideal vacation spots, I felt the same way.In fact, a Boston Globe report went a step further to chart Clooney’s age difference history with previous girlfriends, the average being 9.73 years.What about Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, who were 16 years apart when they were married?
While looking for peace there may sound insane, for me, the move was a lifesaver.I was already two decades past that, so the age difference took him off the romantic-possibility table in my mind.Imagine my surprise then when, over beers, I casually mentioned my kids and was immediately overcome by the desire to pull the words back into my mouth.The intensity extends to our sex life, which is all one might imagine it would be with a hard-bodied, hot man in his 20s (when I mentioned to a friend how kind he was, she said she was too distracted by his looks to notice), and it's helped me remember the sexually liberated woman I was in mine. This is the first time I've had a relationship that is both carnal and profoundly emotional.When I step back and take an objective look at us — he's 26, I'm 48 — I think I must look ridiculous.
