my dear step-bro who is nearing 60, started dating a woman who was in her early 30's.
CrestlineKathy (remember her?) used to say she wouldn't date a man below a certain age, because when someone asked Do you remember where you were when JFK was shot?
She didnt want her BF to say Didnt he die in a plane crash?

To the OP - I have no room to criticize an age difference.
BUT, Yes, as soon as the relationship is *forbidden* it will be so much more appealing.
However, I look back on my high school relationships and realize that what seemed like ForEvah!! was just a few months.
Those all night long phone calls...what DID any of us talk about?

The more "public" and aboveboard the relationship, the more likely it has a chance to run it's course.
Also, even if the young woman is not sexually active (yet) - Birth Control needs to be in place.
My personal favorite was always the Norplant.
Five years!

peace & frames of reference
