Advice about Relationship Age Gap

Advice about Relationship Age Gap - Age gaps in relationships can be overcome, but this also depends on the age obviously. For instance, 20 and 50 may be a little hard to manage, but closer ages like 25 and 40 can work.

The first thing couples with big age gaps face is family and friends. Most family and friends will not approve. If you are serious about your relationship, you need to ignore what everyone else thinks and concentration on your partner.

There will be some big obstacles to overcome. Firstly, being different ages, you and your partner may be at different stages in your life and therefore have different goals. The older partner may be ready to settle down while the younger partner might be more restless. The important thing here is to compromise.

Relationships with a big age gap may be difficult, but not impossible to make work. It all depends on the individuals in the relationship and how hard they are willing to work on it.

I WAS IN A AGE DIFFERENT RELATIONSHIP FOR 21 YEARS. AGE IS ONLY A NUMBER MY PARTNER WAS 37 1/2 YEARS OLDER THAN ME BUT WE HAD A VERY HEALTHY STRONG RELATIONSHIP THAT NO MATTER WHAT ANYONE SAID WE WERE FOR EACH OTHER. WE WERE DEPARTED BY HIS DEATH FROM CANCER AND HAD IT NOT BEEN FOR THAT WE WOULD STILL BE TOGETHER OUR LOVE WAS VERY STRONG WE CONCEIVED A CHILD WHEN HE WAS 64 NY SON NOW IS 17 YEARS OLD WE HAD A RELALTIONSHIP THAT THE THING THAT COULD HAVE SEPARATED US WAS DEATH AND I MISS HIM HE HAS BEEN GONE FOR ONE YEAR AND I AM STILL NOT READY TO DATE REMEMBER WHAT WORKS FRO YOU MAY NOT WORK FOR SOMEONE ELSE IT DEPENDS ON IF THEY ALLOW OTHER PEOPLES STUPIDY TAKE OVER WHAT THEY REALLY FEEL FOR THE PERSON THEY ARE DATING

I find that age gaps are more acceptable if the older partner in the relationship is willing to date someone older than themselves by the same number of years as the gap with their younger partner. For example, if the age gap is 15 years, the older partner should be willing to date someone 15 years their senior? This allows the older partner to see the age gap from the younger partner's viewpoint.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, GatorUpdates.com and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.

100-calorie Packs Diet

100-calorie Packs Diet - Did you know recent studies show chronic dieters tend to consume more calories when foods and packages are smaller? Consumer behavior was observed in the study regarding "mini-packs," 100-calorie food packages that are marketed to help people control calorie intake.

The study revealed that one group that over-consumes the mini-packs is chronic dieters - individuals making a conscious effort in trying to manage their weight and food intake.

This shows that the distorted perception of small packages may actually undermine dieters' attempts to limit calories.

Consider this: Consumers perceive the mini-packs to be a generous portion of food - numerous small food morsels in each pack and multiple mini-packs in each box - while on the other hand, consumers perceive the mini-packs to be diet food. For chronic dieters, this perceptual dilemma causes a tendency to overeat, due to their emotion-laden relationship with food.

In a series of focus group studi…
