Hello EC family, I'm 62 and was married (to a woman) for 30 years. I finally came out to everyone about 5 years ago. Since then I've divorced her and living happy without hiding myself. I've dated around mostly with guys younger than I. Not really trying to but younger guys seem to like me. By younger is mean 20-30 year olds. As fate would have it I met a 25 year old on dating app. We had a long non-sexual chat. He came over and we continued to talk about life and experiences. Come to find out that both of us are newly gay, if you know what I mean. We started talking and texting every day. Something "clicked" between us and we realized we were in lover. That was 3 years ago. Neither of us was looking for a boy friend, but it happened so naturally. He moved in for 3 months before he was off to his hometown for college 1500 miles away. We recognized the age the big age difference and it seems to be one of the things that bind us together. While we lived together we made long term plans for a future together after he graduates. We are not the "daddy and son" thing. We are equals in the relationship. We consider ourselves to be life partners. But the 1500 miles and time physically apart hurts. I wonder if I've done the right thing and we talk about it. We are assured we're to be together. Question: As anyone been in a long distance relationship? What did you do to keep it fresh? Thanks for reading. W.
