Holy cow, Lunalove! The cosplay you did for your hubby is AMAZING! We have played WoW as well for years and you really nailed it....he looks just like a ret pally!=D

And I would never guess you guys have a 30 year age gap. No way, no how. :eek::no:

So sorry I didn't see this reply until now. Poor hubby is working super long hours right now and we're getting up at 4:30am 6 days a week so have very little time in the evenings, should be a temporary issue though.

Thank you sooooo much for the cosplay kudos! I really did work on it for years, and probably more than 100 hours, but I did a lot of it before he moved here and it gave me something fun to work on and keep me occupied. :)

To be honest, it's not 30 years, it's only 29 years and 7 months... LOL, but thanks for being so nice. :D

Also to be honest, he doesn't usually play Ret, but I ran out of time and needed to make him a weapon fast so went with that, and he was playing Ret while leveling. He usually tanks or heals, but making a nice shield and sword wasn't going to happen in time. He's trying to pick a shield/sword set now I can work on for the next PAX or possibly Blizzcon in the next year or two. BTW, he plays a human pally, with a toon that looks a lot like him in RL.

I'm going to send you a friend request, would be a blast to play together sometime! :)

Hi everyone! It's been ages, but I wanted to give an update. My YM and I just celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary! We took our blended family with us on our honeymoon 10 years ago, so we did a return trip this past week.

I can't seem to upload or attach my photo, so here is a link:

You can read our "how we met" story in the first post of this thread. He's now 36 and I'm 49. There CAN be a happily ever after for YM/OW relationships! :)

Hi Kristin! Awesome that you all are still together and celebrated your 10 years together! I agree with you that there is for sure happily ever after in our kind of relationships!

Update .......

Just wanted to pop in and give a quick update. Still going strong. Hubby got a job in another town so we spent this summer choosing a new house and moving, etc. Still don't have everything unpacked though. I do hate moving!

Seems we end up online somewhere at least once a year so thought I'd share this year's episode as well. We attended a Smashing Pumpkins concert this past summer, sprung for really great seats even though we aren't huge fans.

We didn't realize it but they live streamed the whole concert, so we are in a bunch of scenes from that. My favorite that I can find is when they fade into my hubby's face. It's about at 30:18 in (sorry it wants to start at the beginning). I'm a good whistler and you can see me whistling on hubby's left which is very bottom right of the screen. We are in a lot of shots though.


Hope everyone else here is well, and I wish you all very happy holidays and a wonderful new year!

Not a "Happy ending" but I think it fits in here!

I'm new in here and I was reading the lovely happy ending stories, some of them almost made me cry. I'm 41 now, and as I already said in my welcome post, I've always been attracted by younger guys. The "older" person I've been with is a 36 year old man. And somehow I felt he was the older one in the relationship. The thing is, my biological age, has never matched what I feel inside. I think I will be always a "playful little girl" deep down.

This doesn't mean that I am irresponsible of course, but my core nature is and always will be young. That said, sorry if my English is not perfect but It's not my first language and I've learned from scratch at age 30.

So why am I here to tell you "my story" without a happy ending? Because If there wasn't a happy ending is mainly my fault not my ex-boyfriend's fault who kneeled asking me to marry him and I broke his heart by saying that I couldn't. Not because of our age-gap (I was 35 at the time and he was 23, so 12 years apart), but because I had a massive dream to fulfill and subconsciously I wasn't ready to get married and I only realized it when he proposed. I feel super bad about it as he was a marvelous, kind, responsible and adorable guy. We lived together for 4 years before he proposed so we knew each other super well and we lived as a normal married couple already. He was starting out his brilliant career and I had mine. Everything was perfect from the outside.

No one even realized our age gap, to be honest, I introduced him to my family (big laughs as I had to translate everything because they don't speak English but they loved him immediately), same went with me and his family, they adored me. We had little fights, nothing major, He was a young man already when we met (online! pretty unusual for me). We started talking online and even if we were living in the same city, it took me around 1 year to decide to meet him (I'm a bit old fashion!) he was patient and was totally taken by me and viceversa even via chat so the first time we went out for our first date, we hit it off immediately, we kissed and I remember him saying "and now please tell me that we are officially a couple!". And Obviously I agreed :)

Despite that, in the beginning, he wanted to "take it easy", and I was totally fine with that because I'm also scared of rushing things, but after a couple of months it was natural for us to move in together as both of our rentals were expiring and in an expensive city it was also practical to do it, considering how in love we were.

Never in a million years, I would have thought that I would be the one to break my ex's heart. I'm not saying I regret my decision, as it was something I hadn't planned at all, but this dream was definitely much bigger than anything else (and it's a dream that i finally fulfilled and it's now my life and my job as well). In the end I made him a favor tough. Even if there was a bit of drama after the split (I panicked and came back to him swearing that I made a mistake and asking for forgivness) then I was so confused about my dream and all and I split for a second time, and this time he never looked back, very hurt (poor soul) he cut all the contacts and in the end he finally found his soulmate in another woman and now I discovered that they are married and have a kid. I'm very happy for him but I wasn't the woman who could give him what he wanted.

Apparently, he was the one wanting a family and kids as soon as possible, even if he was 23 and I was the one who had other plans), so Yes, age gap relationship can work. If I only wasn't that confused about my dream, I could be married with a much younger person and be happy. I wanted to share this for the women and men who might have doubts and I thought that adding my story could also help.

Welcome, Claudia. I think it is natural for people to want to pursue their dreams... whether it's education, career, a business or other dream. Sometimes we feel that marriage and family may conflict with it. When the time and the person is right, all of the pieces will come together and you will know it.

Thank you... I0d have so much more to say, but as I can see the forum is not super active and I have some days where I would truly need advice on my situation. s for my "non Happy Ending"... You are totally right.

I have always found love a bit frightening. But rest assured he was not the one. If he would have been the one, you would have put him first and made your dreams work around him. This forum is not super busy but we always come back if you need advice that is not urgent.

Hey, it's been a long time! Jeremy and I are still together. He's now 40 and I'm 53. Kierney turns 15 this year! I was just thinking of this place because I wanted to share with someone Bella's awesome response on the "The Old Body Thing" thread. That changed my whole outlook, lol! Is she still around? Hope everyone is doing well!!

Hi Kristin, it's so nice to hear from some of the people who were here when I first joined. It's great to hear that the two of you are still together. :kiss2:

"The Old Body Thing" thread had a huge impact on me when I first joined. I would read a few pages a day and by the time I finished the whole thread, it totally transformed my outlook. Now that you've mentioned it, I think I'll share it with a friend who is feeling she can't date because of all the scars she accumulated with cancer surgery. Bella's response really set the stage for something beautiful, and life and love affirming. :rose:

Kristin, funny I happened to pop by today while sitting on hold. It's been a while. I'm still around, David and I are still happily married, it'll be 7 years on New Year's Day, but a couple of decades together. I had my 66th birthday in June. He sent me flowers at work with a card that said "still the best decision I ever made"
I'm going to retire in January. He's a clinical educator RN working on his Master's degree. My granddaughter is being induced as we speak with her second baby. David's the youngest great grandpa ever probably at 38.
Life's good.
