Well to speak up as one of the younger women. I am 21 years the junior of my wonder man. He just turned 60 and I am 39. Actually, we have been dating for three years. His surgery was a year ago -- the day before Valentine's Day. I will have to say (as I have said to him many times) -- A dead man can't have relations! I was the one that noticed signs of problem and pushed and pushed for him to go get checked. I also wanted the best doctor for him to have the RP --Da Vinci in hopes of the best long term cure available. I believe at first he was afraid of the surgery and afraid of my reaction...thus he was thinking of the rad. pellets. Upon my researching of the different options, I became set on the operation for as I have stated..............I want him with me and the rest of the world!!! Now, I will say that I can not deny that we both have mourned our losses but I believe that people can chose to to get on with living or give up. Life is choice and I choice life, love, laughter! I will not accept any less from my wonderful man either! Relations is what you choose it to be -- there is many wonderful ways to show your partner how much you love them. I am very happy and content with my man. I believe God will not burden us with what we can not handle.
Now with stating this -- has this been an easy road for us? No of course not -- but I would not want to be anyhow nor with anyone else. Now, I will say that I knew his age and he knew mine when we meet. Therefore, the person needs to have the maturity to understand what they are getting into in the beginning. I felt that a mature loving companionship is where I wanted to be. I too had several problems in the reproductive area and thus had take female hormones for the last few years. What I am saying that any relationship is rewarding if the two both come into with real expectations. Maybe some of the relationships that began did not have real expectations and maturing at looking a things in the beginning...therefore, cancer, wealth and aging etc will always be a problem. Remember life is hope thus, the first priority is LIFE!!
