Dating man older woman younger
Indeed, my first long-term relationship was with a woman 12 years my senior.
I was 26 when I started dating Ann, a successful 38-year-old TV producer.
She was his drama teacher, married and 25 years his senior.
I’d grown up with two older sisters so being around more mature women was nothing new but this felt different — very different.
The first woman I ever fell in love with was 20 years older than me.
Her name was Judith and she worked as a matron at my boarding school.
In what I can only imagine was a deliberately cruel move on the part of the school, Judith’s living quarters had been tantalisingly positioned bang next door to the boys’ dormitory, just the other side of a paper-thin wall.
I really wasn’t into the party-girl scene and longed for a bit of stability.Looking back, the age gap doesn’t seem so cavernous, but I remember feeling anxious at the time.She was so much more together than me, despite the fact she’d just emerged from a long and painful marriage break-up.Like many boarding school boys forcibly removed from their mother at an early age, I tended to place women on unfeasibly high pedestals.With her statuesque figure and alabaster skin, Judith wouldn’t have looked out of place atop a Doric column.
