When Searching For Love Does Age Matter?

After being married three times, Madison Drake found herself single at age 47. Madison's next step was to find love again. Madison's search for companionship took her to a popular online dating site. But after a couple of years of uneasy circumstances, Madison began to wonder if she was setting herself up for ongoing disappointment. Madison had everything else in life. She lived in a serene city, surrounded by wonderful friends and family.

After Madison's last divorce she was happier then she'd ever been, yet her need for male companionship troubled her lonesome spirit.

All three of Madison's marriages had been abusive, in which she suffered from bouts of depression. Her failed relationships led to a broken heart. Madison's first husband was verbally offensive. "Husband number two, was a compulsive liar, and number three, was a womanizing fool." As Madison so plainly stated.

Just as she was about to bail out of the dating scene, Madison found the man of her dreams, his name was Adam. Essentially, Adam claimed to be 45. The two met through an online dating service, at the time Adam’s factual age was unknown. But after their first date in person, the truth materialized. Adam was 24, yet the 23-year age distinction between the two was not an issue. Madison and Adam were in love.

Seven years later, the two contently live together in a breathtaking hacienda bordering the heart of Sedona's, Red Rock Mountains in Arizona. Their age differentiation is not evident when sipping wine under the desert moonbeams or while biking the Oak Creek Canyon Trail. The age barrier emerges when Adam plans for his future.

Excited to pursue his education in business, Adam plans to attend Arizona State University. Madison is retired from her high profile job as a human resource director for a well-known law firm and is ready to travel abroad. Madison is not prepared for Adam to consume his evenings cramming for exams, she says, "I told Adam that I have enough income for the both of us. I’m ready to travel. I can be a bit selfish when it comes to Adam. I will admit that I worry that he may meet a younger woman in college. College guys don’t chase after older women." Madison continues, "However Adam is kind and considerate and he values my opinion. In some areas of our relationship Adam can be naïve. But he is not verbally abusive and I've never seen him glance twice, at another woman in my presence. Most of my friends think that Adam Is too young for me, but I don't care what my friends think. I just happened to have found the qualities I desire in a younger man."

And I have not been able to find this quality in a younger women. I love Madie! She knows what she want's in life, and she can take care of herself. Younger women tend to be to needy. I want a woman that's sure of herself. Madie. Is the complete package! I'm lucky to have her in my life."
