Dear Dr Sabrina:

I have been following you for years, listening to your late night radio show and learning a lot. So, I remember you having such a diverse list of guests on your show. I have followed you here at Beautiful Machine Magazine and continue to learn from your words of wisdom.

I feel comfortable sharing my real issue and need some input. I am a 40 year old woman with 3 adult children 20, 19, and 18 years of age. I am single and open to dating. I have met a very nice younger man who is 10 years my junior. I have refused his advances for a little over 6 months due to my worrying how others may think about our age difference. He has actively continued to pursue me.

I am attracted to him and feel that we could possibly have a successful relationship. The things I have been concerned about:

*Will we have things in common

*Will people look at us strange due to the age difference (However I do not look my age as you know black don’t crack)

*What if he wants children

*What will my children think

Help Dr. Sabrina, should I throw caution to the wind and give it a try dating the younger man or seek a man closer to my own age?
