I fell in love with a black man, almost 40 years ago. I know exactly what you are saying. The difference is that now I am 56 years old, and he is 60, and I'm old enough and have come far enough that I really don't care what anybody has to say! He found me after searching for a few years, last February, I asked him if he had married, had children. He said "no, never married, never had children". Why, I asked. "I never found the right girl, actually, I never found another you", he answered. I told him that I had been married 3 times, been iin relationships, had 3 kids, but I had never found another him! Long story short-I went back to Wisconsin and met his family this summer. I loved them, they love me, and he and I will be together for the rest of our lives! I really regret the time we lost! Go for it, screw what the family says!
