Byline: Dear Coleen email email@example.com
I'D LIKE to reply to the letter from the 40-year-old lady who's fallen for a younger colleague (Dear Coleen, Feb 11).
I was in a similar position when I was 43 and going through a marriage breakdown. I became friendly with a man 21 years younger and we hit it off. The age gap never seemed a problem but he was due to return to New Zealand where he's from.
He offered to stay and, although I had intense feelings for him, I encouraged him to stick to his plans because I didn't want him to resent me. Fast forward 30 years, we're married, very happy and still madly in love. He did go back home but returned two weeks later to be with me. How's that for a love story? Maureen Hall, by email
