    Age differences - Can it work out?

    I’ve joined some of the reputable dating sites like A Foreign Affair, Intl.Cupid and etc... I’ve noticed when browsing through profiles that most women are young. I’m 56 years old and most of the ladies are 15-20 years younger than me. But that did not stop me from getting in contact with the ladies.

    Some never responded and some did. One woman stood out the most. I’ve corresponded with her through AFA. She’s 33 years old and from Bangkok, Thailand. Despite our age and cultural differences, I am able to relate with her and enjoy my time writing to her. It’s been months since we started exchanging letters and we’ve started to establish a relationship.

    At first, I worried that the 2-decade age gap would make it impossible for things to progress. A lot of people gave me the cold shoulder because of our age-gap and my kids aren’t really happy about it at first. But because they can tell that I’m happy, they’ve accepted my relationship with her.

    Now, I’m planning a trip to Bangkok to meet and get to know her more. Hopefully, if things go well, I’d be able to bring her along with me to meet my children.

    I still have uncertainties from time to time due to our age differences, but I believe that things can really work out between us. What do you think?

    If this is a genuine question and not just about advertising your own website like the above posted has mentioned - yes, of course they can. You're both adults so there's no reason why two people who get along can't make a relationship work, even if there's a large age gap.

    I know a few adult couples who are around a decade apart in age and happy in love, so as long as it's legal I don't see why not...
