May - December Relationship

Older woman – Younger man or vice versa, whatever it is, the meaning still the same, difference age gap.

Even though people get used to it nowadays, but still the issue of May – December relationship always an interesting topic of discussion.

In this article, the author said that younger man are comfortable with older woman appreciate the understanding and tolerant of the older woman. Besides the way the older woman taking care of the younger man.

In the other article, the author said that the older woman actually enjoy the flexibility, the spontaneous, of their younger companions. Whilst the younger man find the older woman more interesting, experimental, fun to talk to, financially settled and more adept sexually.

But is that kind of relationship really works ?

In a relationship, no matter it is a May – December relationship or not, the key is the “voltage”, where the two persons have the same frequency.

If we’re looking into these two movies, some of the idea of Older woman – Younger man relationship is there. Both of those two movies also spot the conflict which arise from May – December relationship. But both of those movies also shown us how Cupid sometimes so innocent.

For me .. whatever the relationship name is, May – December or the common thing, all start with LOVE and no one can’t explain the true LOVE.

Here’s the summary and beautiful quotation of these two movies :

Prime – it tells about thirty seven years old career woman Ravi meet and fall in love with twenty three years old painter David. Despite their intense attraction, the charmed couple soon realizes that vastly different ages and backgrounds create much conflict. And that is the reason they end up their relationship.

David Bloomberg (lying in bed, making love): I want to make a baby with you
Rafi Gardet : I can’t. I can’t do this to you. You don’t want to
David Blomberg : You want to. It’s what you want so I want it
Rafi Gardet : But you don’t. You would regret it.
David Bloomberg : I want to give you this gift.
Rafi Gardet : I know. And it’s the sweetest gift anyone has every given me. The fact that you are willing to do this for me shows how deep your love goes. That’s the gift I’m taking from you instead.

I Could Never Be Your Woman : it tells about a forty years old mother falls for a twenty nine years old younger man while at the same time have to face the her daughter falls in love for the first time.

The interesting conversation in this movie is even she really loves him; she doesn’t have the heart to tell him their age gap.

Rosie : Because I’m older than you all of things are my responsibility

interesting topic :)
Ppl question the relationship as they cant withstand the olderwoman and youngman togther ... But if there is LOVE, the same ppl and their criticism doesnt matter.

So. Love rather True Love is what these type of relationships need, then rest becomes history :)

The main factor for relationship is Love then among others are honesty, trustworthy and loyalty.

For me, age is just a number. Coz no guarantee older man will be more mature than me or someone younger :)

Komila : But still people will look differently. Anyway, as you said, as long as there's love there, the rest becomes history :-)

Ecky : Couldn't agree more than you

i love this story. i am still young but i don't close my doors of falling in love to an older man. i don't see anything wrong with it as long as everything is legal and we don't step on other shoes.
