I've liked the idea of having a partner that's closer to my own age, but more often than not I'll find that they'll be older, sometimes significantly older. Often the media displays these relationships in a way that makes them seem taboo or creepy. I'm finding more and more especially online that people will request a cross generational relationship like someone my age will ask for someone older or someone middle aged would be all over younger guys. My understanding is that most people connect with people best emotionally who are within about two or three years of their age range. The whole "Daddy-son" relationship is often found in porn, which makes me think it's a family. But is it possible that such a relationship can actually be emotionally deep and not just physical? Moreover, could that become something that society accepts as normal in the future.
