Dating someone younger than yourself
Imagine my surprise then when, over beers, I casually mentioned my kids and was immediately overcome by the desire to pull the words back into my mouth.
My chagrin made me realize that, at least on a subconscious level, I was interested in him. A few days later, he sent me a message saying he missed me. We meandered to a nearby hotel to check out the rooftop bar there.
I'm well aware that one day he may want children and that living with two kids who aren't his might become more than he wants to deal with.

She had many more years of life experience and wisdom to draw on, and we had great conversations. She wanted it more than girls my age did and it was seriously the best sex I've ever had.Obviously this is only one person's experience and others will vary, but this is all I could contribute.
