Old young dating relationships
When it comes to men, love really knows no limits and is just a number.
Actor Mel Gibson and partner Rosalind Ross pose at the American Film Institute Awards in Los Angeles, California, on Jan. Gibson, who is 61, is 35 years older than his partner Rosalind Ross, who is 26.
There's probably never been a time in your adult life where a potential partner has turned you away because you're too young — or too old.
In a lot of ways, it makes the mystery of love all the more elusive: Does age difference matter to men?
" While it's fairly common for a woman to marry an older man, the reverse isn't as much of a social norm. Travis and Leah, who have been married close to 20 years, met while attending the same six-week missions organization training.

This type of mentality can not only be refreshing, but it also can help lay the groundwork for a creative and happy relationship.Turns out, experts say compatibility between two people who just happen to have an age gap isn’t as unusual as we may think.Also, many of the commonly held beliefs about dating a younger man or woman — for instance, that a junior partner may lack maturity — aren’t true, relationship expert and columnist April Masini told Fox News.“A younger partner has more energy, and usually fewer or no kids of his or her own,” Masini said.

I had similar concerns when I met Kevin.
