I am 48 years old and I have a completely irrational crush on a 24 year old boy. He feels the same way and we are becoming more and more physically and emotionally intimate. I'm married too which makes it even crazier.I just can't give him up... I feel powerless in my attraction to him. He makes me feel alive.

  • I can understand the age gap relationship thing cuz im in one, and I know it can work out if you love each other.
    Follow your heart!

  • ^^^ agree^^^ Sounds like a woman's version of a mid-life crisis! You either need to stay with your husband, and stop all contact with the guy, or leave your husband. Even though you are probably seething with libido now, do you really think a 30 year old young man is going to stick with you through menopause. He probably will end up wanting a younger woman who can give him a family, not to say you can't, but you would be a senior citizen when your kid is still in highschool. I can see how it would be tempting, but ultimatley, it would be a stupid decision on your part. GO to a marriage counselor or something!

  • Why do people hae to cheat all the time if you don't want to be with that person anymore just break up with them.Don't cheat on them because what if he cheated on you i bet you wouldn't like would you!!??!!.

  • obviously your marriage isn't working,maybe you should take a break from your partener for a while & see what happens

  • I second the above post. You only live once, so enjoy what comes your way.

  • Proceed with caution. Do you know what in particular you are missing in your marriage? ICan it be fixed? Is your marriage worth "blowing up"? If the young man can consistently, in the long term, make you feel whole, I'd say go for it. Just know that he is young and will eventually likely ditch you for someone younger. Also know that this fling may cost you your marriage. But if you are okay with it, love every minute of it.
