I have fallen for a friend of mine, isn't that the best kind? On numerous occasions he has stuck his neck out to keep me safe, though he has gained nothing from it. We have similar personalities which is amazing because we are very unique individuals. Neither of us has any family, our IQs are quite a force, and we both have serious criminal backgrounds. Just the scent of him starts my heart racing and Im ready to denounce all past loves. The only issue is our age. He is 48 while I am 27. I can't imagine denying ourselves happiness and partnership over what society deems appropriate, however I don't want to alienate the people who love us. Neither of us have ventured this far from our respective age before. So what do you guys feel?
