Wondering if anyone's had issues with finding "particular age bands" sexually attractive
e.g., I've never found young adults attractive.
My 'golden bracket' has always been 30~50's, even when I myself was younger.
The impracticality of it was one of the reasons staying in the closet was made easier for me until later (and more recently) in my life.
If I had been sexually active in my teens, it would have needed to be with people old enough to be my parent's friends or friend's parents, but there was never a practical or "not weird" opportunity for this to happen.
Recently, for the fist time in my life, I've started seeing people "my age" and sometimes younger as legitimately attractive, and it feels like I've grown into my age bracket at last.
I remember hearing a story of a couple, with a big age difference. The older one seemed to like people of a certain age, say, early 20's but they themselves were about 40.
What ended up happening was the older one eventually fell out of "physical love" with the younger one, as they had clearly aged and matured as the year went by matured.
So that means what? the older person needs to keep finding new 20 years old to have a 9 year relationship with and then dump them on their 30th birthday?
Obviously this is an extreme example, but I'm wondering surely once you find someone you like, them aging and getting older shouldn't be a problem.
But what if you find it is?
Are you destined for a life of loneliness searching for younger and younger partners?
