I'm also ashamed that when I was in my 20's I fell in love with at least 2 16/17 year olds, and there was others that maybe I wasn't quite in love with. The thing is that I was working at a grocery store with lots of teens, and the only females that would ever pay any attention to me were 16-18 year olds. Women my age were always out of reach. I never got involved with any of those girls though, but I was at least waiting for some of them to turn 18. But nothing ever came of it. I'm now 42 and in a loving ldr with a 62 year old. When I was like 30 I also was in love with a 50 year old once that I never got to be with. Obviously I've never been too discriminatory about age.
