When two people love each other, there are no barriers that can stop the feeling that connects them. Love is free and no amount of money can buy you love, it knows of no race, no color, no religion and no age, so when it knocks on your door, why repress it based on the fact that you have been in this planet longer than your beloved?

Having a younger partner is not about “enjoying an experience” bound for failure. All relationships are bound for failure if there is no respect or trust. Hardly ever, a relationship ends because of age. Lots of people whose partners are of same or similar age break up because love is either gone, they fell for someone else, or they simply got bored with each other. There are times when both parties know the relationship won’t last as they don’t want to make the commitment but still they want to enjoy the experience. This happens at all stages of a person’s life and not just in relationships where the woman is the older one. Women tend to analyze a lot, the why he is not calling, texting, committing, and the rest. The answer is plain simple: He doesn’t want to. This “lack of commitment” or “not ready for a relationship yet” situation, has nothing to do with the year we were born or even maturity. The timing and the extra connection are simply not there for someone to want more. In any case, age is always out of the equation in love matters.

In our lifetime, there is no such thing as “forever,” and the same applies to relationships. At least, if “forever” is the intention, then that’s enough. Afterwards, it is up to life to decide whether forever is two years, two months or till death do you part. Life is a journey and our dreams, feelings, goals and aspirations remain regardless of age. The older woman subject is like the online dating taboo of the early 2000s; forward 15 years and nobody blinks an eye if a couple mentions they met online. People fall in love with other people, they don’t fall in love with other people’s ages. We are made to believe that it is best to have a relationship with someone older or same age because not only would the person be more mature and have more experience but because otherwise, your partner may leave you for a younger woman. Utterly  unfounded fears.
