John....you make me smile
Cool. I like making ladies smile.
Devoted to discussion pertaining to those issues which are specifically relevant to people 45+. Topics must have a specific perspective of people in this age group for it to be on topic.
The story of Abraham and Sarah is told in chapters 11-25 of the book of Genesis.

Yes ma'am - we have had these exchanges several times before. And I do admit there are exceptions. Great-grandma? She was 10 years older than Grandpa Charlie. And she died about 15 years after he did. But she really was the exception (who also had the first of 7 kids at the age of 39! )
I was just talking about statistical expectations, not all possible scenarios.
And I'm just whining. It happens, and God has a plan for me. (starting at 39 )
Let's be a little realistic. The older we get (remember which room we are in), the bigger deal the age difference becomes. When my sister was 28, she married a 43 year old. He was in great shape, very active, and the age difference really was no big deal. At 40, her husband was 55, offered early retirement from a major corporation and she retired too. He was ready to slow down, but she was only 40. But they are in love, so it worked. At 50, he was 65 and starting to get major health issues. Now she's in her late 50's and he is nearing mid 70's with emphysema, on oxygen and needs a scooter to get around. She looks and acts way older than I do, mostly because she is dealing with geriatric issues that someone our age does not normally deal with.
It's nice to speak in ideal terms, and I know that we need to be open to God's will. But, shouldn't we put ourselves in a position where God can help us find happiness? Talking about + or - 3 to 5 years is fine. I know everyone's genetics are different, my great grandmother made it to 110. But c'mon! 15 to 20 years older at our age? I know this will upset some people, but statistically speaking, if I dated a woman 20 years older than me, well, let's just say that I should keep my CM membership current.
My best friends husband is 7 years younger and they met on here in 2005..He pursued her like crazy. There was another couple who were from CA that got married and they had a more significant age difference, I'm thinking it was about 15 years, with her being older.. My own experience has been that younger men go and tell me they don't date older women.
I was listening to Al Hirt, Hugo Montenegro, Ella Fitzgerald, Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass, Pete Fountain and Louis Armstrong among others.
Edward, we are talking here about the woman being older than the man ... and how Amor is dealing with that ...
oh, I forgot ... we all, especially the 15+ years older want to get to know you better - so be the initiator ...
Thank you, Andrea .... I agree .... you are also one of those REALLY wonderful ladies
OH, how nice of you MaryAlice ... at least someone has noticed - and that too a lady !
Ich wünsche Dir einen wunderschönen Tag!
