Instead, be realistic about what you want in someone, not what you want from their age.
A woman who's dating a man thirty years younger than her says that she's found her soulmate, in spite of the huge age gap.
Jill Carpenter, 50, from Pittsburg in California, met Eric Langley, 20, on an online dating site last year and the couple have been inseparable ever since.
He was closer to 40 than I was to 30, and I felt like he’d inevitably want marriage and children much sooner than I would.
So I let our connection slip away, allowing my concern over our age difference to overshadow our passion.
We continued to date until, eventually, our lifestyles proved drastically different.
