An update: I first posted this love story last year and it was a big hit. Everyone loves a love story, right? Well, as it so happens, the love has not waned one iota and if anything, is even more poignant. Even though we are both a year older, the age difference is simply not a factor in our relationship. But one thing is a little unsettling, I don’t see him as often as I would like to and now he has another new interest in his life which I will reveal a little later in the story. So here you go…
I have a confession to make. I’m in love with a younger man. At my age you pretty much have to be. You see, I’m seventy-eight years old, and men my age and up are just not interested in older women.
It’s not the first time I’ve been in love, but it is the first time in a long time.
I met my new love just over three years ago. It was love at first sight. Let me tell you about him. First of all he is good to look at..blonde hair, smiling eyes, slim build…a real charmer.
He is so much fun and makes me feel young. He is inquisitive, talkative, and playful. At a recent party he gave me his undivided attention and told me he loved me. My heart melted. Twice, in front of everyone, he leaned into me and hugged me…didn’t matter who was watching.
He loves music and is a top-notch dancer. ..like, he really has the moves. The only problem I have is he is a bit of a lady’s man. Women love him and I’m not too sure that I can handle all the appreciative stares, or the outstretched arms to hug him at every opportunity.
He is physically fit and fancies himself as a hockey player…whereas I haven’t donned a pair of skates in decades.
Sometimes I tell myself I’m too old for love, but when we’re together my heart melts and I am putty in his hands.
I didn’t expect to put my new-found love in the limelight, but there you have it. What more can I say, except I really love this guy!
The new interest is Junior Kindergarten!
