Jerry - I have several local ladyfriends from their 20s-to-70s. No local Love Connection though.
3 years ago, as a Contractor, I had strong friendships w/ 2 women both 38-years younger. The friendships developed from working w/ them.
I don't think of age as much as I think of who-the-person-is-inside when I think about romantic compatibility. As people get to know each other, their personalities need to mesh right - both sides need to feel that romantic pull when they are together. I have male friends of all ages, but most of them I'd never date romantically, and they feel the same way about me.
I set a male co-worker up with one of my girlfriends when he needed a date for a formal business dinner/dance (retirement party.) They had a 12 year age gap, and they've been married about 20 years now.
