I am a man in my early 30s. I had a five year relationship with a man 40 years my elder. Much of the relationship was wonderful and I wouldn’t trade the love or experience for anything. However, it was time to move on. I am now single and exploring the world of intergenerational gay relationships in a way with different perspective.
With this blog I have decided to share my story in the hope that others interested in or a part of an age disparate relationship will know they are not alone. I also hope that others may read this and find that the idea of a May to December romance really isn’t so strange or foreign; to combat some of the myths that pervade our culture.
I intend my posts to be frank and honest examinations of romance, family, friendship, and social norms and expectations. That said, the details of some anecdotes may be changed to protect the privacy of my friends and family. I hope that my story and my thoughts on the subject of relationships will provide insights to others. Also, I welcome others to share their thoughts, feelings and questions.
