The Age of Happiness

Age is just a number, right?  So, should we make a big deal when somebody starts trying to date somebody of a different age?  I have been asked on a few occasions about age differences and how much is too much.  This is a subject I used to be more opinionated about, but as I have gotten older, I have decided a relationship is about finding joy and happiness, and far be it from me to tell somebody they can’t be happy with another person. Recently there was a story about a 94 year old billionaire marrying a much younger…

It seems we are all looking for the same basic thing, somebody who is a true friend and yet that you have amazing chemistry with also. If we had our preference, it would be somebody who fully knew us and yet loved us completely, that elusive soul mate. Very few people ever experience that type of relationship in their lifetime. It does happen, but it is so rare that most of us decide that one or the other is good enough. For anyone who has experienced it, if it is lost, it is very difficult to recover and settle for less than that again.
