Your Stories – She Was Everything! By Hillbilly Blogger

A Momma's View

As you all know I love a good love story. I chase you all, trying to share your story with me. And sometimes I stumble across a post of one of you, sharing exactly that story. Like in this case. So I asked. I asked Hillbilly Blogger if I may share his beautiful love story here on my blog. It’s one of those stories that show, in which kind of way we connect. What the energy between us can do.

Remember, if you have a beautiful love story to share (yours, your parents or a good friend of yours), feel free to email me (amommasview@gmail.com).

In my post, I’m going to write on the advantages a young woman has when she dates an older man, say +15 years her senior. While you must be cudgelling your brains about what has triggered me to blog on this, let me confess beforehand that as a young woman myself, I find older men enormously attractive. They are a whole package! And the fascinating thing with them is that they equate me on many levels –…
