Regarding relationships. I often hear, “Age is nothing but a number; You cannot help who you fall in love with.” I would deeply like to agree with this, but a friend got me thinking the other day. When we begin dating someone of an older age and see a future together. How long can it last? Dating another about 10-12 years older is great for right now? Why not for the long term? Looking into the future with another is a great thing. Say one is 28 while the other is 40. A future together could still be great, depending on the agility and liveliness of both parties. When one is 48 the other is 60. What works for one couple does not always work for another. On the tube we see many couples with a large age range. At times it is a ship guided by the lighthouse through the storm. Other times they come crashing into the harbor. We all want to eventually settle down and grow old with someone. With a larger age difference is this possible? There are so many factors that can come into play such as health concerns, stamina, maturity level, etc…I fully understand we should all be with another around our age. The thing is I truly believe, “You cannot help who you fall in love with.” I guess it truly does depend on the two in the relationship…
