Thanks @Tinker-lulu. Nice to know you’re a fellow poetry lover. I’ve been writing since I was 10 and have close to 300 poems. Easy for me to write from my heart...so have poems about family members, colleagues and friends who have passed away, motivational poetry, poetry about my feelings in different situations and poetry about people who have positively and negatively impacted my life...including the men I’ve been in love with over the years. If only there was always a happy ending.What a lovely post, I really like the poetic side of it as I love poems as well and fairy stories bcz usually they have a happy ending..
However I'm also a realistic and I look at the world we live now, age difference MATTERS a lot, of course they don't care bcz at the end of the day they get what they want from you... visa, money, status etc.... but to be truthful they know that you will die before him anyway due to the advance age gap, so becareful before you get too involved with a younger rat.
But yes, you are correct that age matters. I didn’t even think about those rats who date/marry really old women knowing they only have so long to live. Family members and close friends may clearly what is going on...but when we’re in love we are often blind as bats and don’t see what is actually happening. Rats only have one aim and that is to bleed you dry and to get whatever they wanted...money, visa etc. They don’t have hearts and think only of themselves. Sadly they prey on empathetic women who see the best in others. Little do we realise what we are dealing with until it is too late. Damage done. Definitely I won’t be getting involved with another rat...so will keep an eye out for the ones much younger than me and look too good to be true. Once bitten twice shy! xx
