And when it's the woman who's much older, as I'm seeing more and more often these days, she becomes more conscious of the fragility of her beauty, her fertility, her 20/20 vision.Dianne Dallin, 46, met her husband Mike, 32, in the middle of the Utah desert, on a canyoneering trip. Her first impression of him was: "He's very cute and very young." She wrote him off. "I've never been specifically attracted to older women, younger women, whatever," he says.She set him up with one of her younger friends, and had a long list of others to introduce him to."Then, suddenly, I felt myself falling in love, and I really agonized," she says."He's extremely graceful and very funny and handsome and old-world polite," she says.She could tell he was the kind of guy—and there aren't many at any age—who'd appreciate high-thread-count sheets woven at a monastery in India.
I also met a man who quoted poetry and knew all about wine and astrology and Roman history and which fork to use when presented with several in a fancy restaurant. At the end of our weeklong romance, we exchanged addresses and phone numbers."I'm not interested in having more kids," says Carolanne, who has a 20-year-old son and a teenage daughter."If Duncan decides children are an absolute necessity, he has to make a decision.Still, she didn't let herself imagine they could be a couple.Boulder is a town full of beautiful, eligible young women.
When we're hiking, his knees are worse than mine." Since falling in love with Mike, she has needed to redefine beauty. ' Your answer could be, 'I'm going to get a facelift.' My answer is, 'I'm going to be such a beautiful person inside that it's going to shine through to the outside,'" she says.
