    That was smooth, Rozie! And actually it's often the "close ones" that slam us the hardest for OW/YM relationships, or do the most damage, so let 'em get summa that medicine.

    Shoot, I can't use that one, I was divorced with 3 kids when he was born, so I don't think my claim of being a virgin when he was born would fly.....

    Positive Reactions

    I just experienced a really nice set of reactions... he had to go into the hospital recently and I went with him- we were being all close and affectionate, because it was a difficult time for him and i wanted to comfort and reassure him. I listed myself as "friend" on the forms but also was listed as the person to tell medical info to... so they eventually asked "girlfriend, right?" and were very, very sweet and supportive, saying things like "it looks like you two have a wonderful relationship!" I think in part it is a nice change for them to see people who are happy, and in part i think they were trying extra hard to be supportive because they could see it was an agegap relationship. So nice of them!

    (and, he is going to be ok, my healthy hot young man.)

    when ppl tell me i am old enough to be his mother, which does happen sometimes. i usually respond with "yes i am old enough to be his mother woot woot lucky me"

    however when we are out and i am mistaken for his mother, i find i usually am left speechless and i am not sure what to say. he is usually the one that pipes up and informs the party that i am definately not his mother. this is usually followed by some type of display of affection.

    Actually, she OLDER than my mother. We faced lot of times same as this question. She has three grown up children and grand children also. Now I have good relationship with her children and grandchildren.

    When I admitted her in hospital, a lady doctor asked with me, who is she? Your mother / grandma (Because her body completely damaged by a major operation). I couldn't tell correct answer with her on time. When I meet her next time, I said real with her. She was amazed and surprised.
    Another day one of my friend meets us. She asked with me same as above.

    We were standing in front of a theatre waiting for a cab, and the silent alarm inside went off. A campus cruiser showed up and the officer got out and asked to see our ID. He saw our ages and asked if I was his mother. All these witty and scathing remarks I had ready, and it's a cop, hmph.

    Maybe I said this already, but in a longer conversation I remind others that they are with someone who "could" be their brother (same age). It doesn't seem to bother you, so why would it bother me to be with someone the age of my son?

    And as someone else here said, I think I can tell the difference between either my brother or my son and my man.

    No I'm not...

    Has not happened yet, as we are currently LDR.. (UK, Canada).. he is here TOMORROW for 9 days!! Our first meeting.

    IF it does happen I hope I have the presence of mind to say, No I'm not, his mother is 58. (I'm 46 and look.. mid to late 30's.) I neither dress nor act "my age".. whatever that means.. kind of thinking it won't happen for the most part. We'll see.. already working on smart*** responses..

    I'd ask them how old their SO is and then say "He/She is old enough to be your brother/sister!" to make them see how ridiculous that statement is.

    I suppose there are always what I consider the standby responses.. either.. one eyebrow raised and I say "AND?"... or just laughter.

    Talking

    to date, i've never had anyone say that to me! when me and free are out together, we don't get any unusual stares or comments from people. i fondly remember one incident that happened when we went to a ticket center that was selling Universal Studios/Walt Disney World tickets for an inexpensive rate as long as we signed up for a 90 minute tour of timeshare property.

    while she filled out a form, we were answering her questions when she then asked our ages. free told her his and when she asked me for mine, i said "i'm 44." then she asked, "is he your son?" i looked over at free, rubbed his arm and said, "no, he's my boyfriend." she seemed surprised and then said, "oh sorry." i smiled wryly and said, "oh don't be! i'm not!!"

    it was highly inappropriate and totally unnecessary for that woman to ask that question. but, i can tell by the puzzled look on her face after i told her my age that her curiosity got the better of her (not to mention her lack of etiquette and tact) and she felt compelled to ask. had she not known my age, she wouldn't have ever asked that question. i took that incident as a compliment and am aware that if people don't know how old we are, they would never know that we have an age gap. as far as ignorant, rude people who ask these kinds of questions to older women when they're out with their man, they should be pitied. people only do as much as they know, and obviously people who behave like that aren't very intelligent or mature and are probably jealous of the OW.
