      I am not an opportunist.  I am not a golddigger, I am in love with a man 17 years older than I am.

      My fiance’ is a wonderful man.  I can’t believe I was blessed to find someone I have been longing for all of my life.  You know what I mean; when we were young we made our “wish list” as we thought about our own Prince Charming. happy.

      My “wish list” was so long I began to think that this “superman” was too good to be true, and therefore could not possibly exist.  After 42 years and 2 failed marriages, I finally met the man I wish I met over 20 years ago.  Who would have thought we have 17 years between us? We had been friends for a while, but it just never occurred to me, probably because at the time we met, he had just been through a bitter divorce.  

      With all of the years between us, we have so much in common.  We have the same belief system, same parenting views, same likes in music, and we look at life in the same way; as very, very short and precious.  Other than the obvious age difference, and the fact that his eldest daughter is a year younger than I am, we seem to really fit!    

      In the beginning, I was concerned that we would not have many years together, but then it occurred to me;  something could happen to EITHER of us tomorrow.  Knowing this, we both feel blessed to have found each other, and live each day as if it may be our last.

      If you are single, there is hope ladies!  He is out there.  You just have to stop looking for him!
