Well….I just don’t know how to feel about this story. I’ve always stood in my age range when it came to dating. This just…made my skin crawl.
Kyle Jones from Pittsburgh is a 31-year-old man who shares the opinion with many people in America that age is only a number. In 2009, Jones met 91-year-old Marjorie McCool at the book store where she worked. The two have engaged in a romantic, physical relationship ever since, and are happily dating as each brings something unique to the relationship.
Jones finds her lines, wrinkles, platinum hair and natural hanging neck skin attractive. Jones says he offers older women a different kind of experience than they’re used to with adventure and fun things to do.
McCool says dating somebody younger makes her feel alive again. “The physical side of the relationship is wonderful. I amaze myself and he amazes me, and I like it.”
McCool is also a mother and says she sometimes feels like Jones is just another one of her children. “I sometimes feel like he’s another son, until we hop in bed. Then I feel different.” The two lovebirds are not monogamous, and Jones is also engaged in a relationship with 68-year-old Anna Ronald, who he met on a dating site.
Jones has encountered a lot of expected criticism, but still defends his romantic choices. “The most common (criticism) is that I’m a vulture, you’re after money, you’re after inheritance. I hear that all the time, but it’s not true at all. I do this because I like it and they like it too,” says Jones.
