    Tempus is figuring, as Grandma used to say.
    I'm 58.
    I manage a sort of group home in an Intentional Community (commune) and live with volunteers who are generally between 18 and 24.
    I view them as co-workers/colleagues/equals, and I think they're just being themselves around me until I see them with others their own age.
    It used to make me feel weird, but it's probably for the best.
    VERY few ever just acted like themselves, and I started a relationship with one.
    10 years later, she's 30, we have an 8-year-old, and things could not possibly be better.
    The almost 30 years that separates us does give us a different sense of the passing of time...but not so much as one might think.
    We talk about time a lot because it's going to bring serious changes into our relationship as I age.
    I think the sense of the passing of time has a lot to do with what you're doing.
    When/if your life goes adult...job...kids, etc. time just starts to fly by.

    I cheated. I made my kids rather late in my life to get the impression I'm still under 40.
