I am dating a man 20 years older than me latrobe dating
I really enjoyed his company: he was sophisticated, well travelled and interesting, and I was smitten within weeks.While I didn’t give the age gap a second thought, everyone else was horrified.
When he gained consciousness, and was still unable to speak, he proposed by scrawling on a piece of paper: ‘Will you marry me?
Five years after the end of our marriage I still cannot help having twinges of bitterness at those lost 26 years of my life.
But could the older, wiser me have talked the smitten 25-year-old me out of embarking on the relationship all those years ago?
I hadn’t had much experience with men, and didn’t realise that our relationship was far from normal.
In 1995, when I was 38 and Carol 60, he was admitted to hospital for open-heart surgery.
I was convinced he was ‘the one’ and that we were going to grow old together.
