Dating a man 25 years older than me

I'm not saying every guy in my age group is like this, but overall, my personal experience hasn't been fulfilling for me.

I started my media career at age 9 at a community TV station and my ambition level went up from there.

To get an idea of the possible challenges, you only have to read the experiences of women who have married old men. To be fair, some couples have successfully lived together despite the age difference.

George Clooney and his new wife, Amal Alamuddin, are the talk of the town.

There are biological as well as psychological reasons for this.

For instance, girls enter puberty sooner, their bodies are ready to have children earlier, and they only remain fertile for a limited time period.

The only thing probably missing in my life is a partner, a published book and an owned property… To elaborate even further, I'm an only child, and growing up, I never had many close friends. I was teased and picked on a lot from the kids at school. I guess that's where I began the attraction for the older man type, and it used to freak my mother out.

I never babysat the kids in my neighborhood once; I couldn't relate to kids at all. I would crush on older guys when I was 13, but I really didn't start actually dating an older guy until I was 26; he was 40.

But, it's not all good things, as there’s also talk about their “bizarre” age gap: him 53, her 36.

In fact, a Boston Globe report went a step further to chart Clooney's age difference history with previous girlfriends, the average being 9.73 years.

When Tom and I first met, I was only 18—I certainly didn't want my peers judging me, thinking my being with a partner older than some of their parents was "weird" or "disgusting;" or by older women who thought he was only with me for the sex or that I was one manifestation aspect of a mid-life crisis. We knew our love was real and didn't let the naysayers influence our romance.
