I married my ex-boyfriend’s dad – we started dating when I was a teenager at school & we have the best sex ever 0 43

A WOMAN in a 24-year age gap relationship has revealed that she’s lost friends after tying the knot with her ex-boyfriend’s dad.

Sydney Dean, 27, from Ohio, US, first met truck driver Paul, 51, as a sixth-grader after visiting her then boyfriend, Paul’s son.

Despite their childhood romance coming to an end, they stayed friends during middle school and she would often visit their home after school and on weekends.

But when Paul’s son got a girlfriend in his mid-teens, Sydney found herself as a third wheel and would often chat to Paul, where they sparked a connection.

Now, people struggle to wrap their heads around their budding romance and the two-and-a-half decades between them — but she doesn’t care as she’s having the best sex of her life.

“He is the only person I have had sex with and he is the best,” Sydney told Jam Press.

“I can’t really compare the sex to other relationships, as he is the first real relationship I have been in.

“I never expected to fall in love with Paul and we met in a non-traditional way, but I’m so happy I did.”

The pair started dating when Sydney turned 16, the legal consenting age in Ohio and in 2016, the pair tied the knot.

But she says their road to true love hasn’t been without its ups and downs — with the duo spending years convincing their families they were the real deal.

She said: “My mum already knew who Paul was and from the few times they have talked, they got along just fine.

“But when I first told my mum that we were together, she was not happy.

“The age gap really got to her and it stayed that way for about a year – eventually she came around.

“[After this] we would go to her house almost every weekend just to hang out or have a BBQ.

“Now that we live pretty close to each other, she comes over all the time.

“She’s 100% supportive of us and absolutely loves Paul.

“In fact, they probably chat more than me and her do.

“In the beginning my father didn’t like the age gap either and as he lives out of state, he didn’t see him as much.

“But now, he really likes him.”

As for Paul’s two children, the couple believe that his youngest took their romance the “hardest” as Sydney already knew him.

Sydney said: “He didn’t agree with the relationship for a couple years, but now that we have been together and are married, he supports us being together.

“He comes over with his girlfriend and their three children every other weekend just to hang out with us and BBQ.

“Paul got into a horrible truck accident last July and was in the SICU for nearly three weeks.

“While he was in there, I would talk to his son everyday and we would come see him together.

“Now all the family is OK with us being together.

“I did have one friend that wasn’t OK with mine and Paul’s relationship.

“This friend would never want to come hang out or even talk to me much at all if he was around.

“She eventually didn’t want to be my friend anymore because of the age difference in the relationship.”

Sydney hopes sharing her story will help to remove the stigma towards age gap relationships.

She added: “I wish people would understand that couples with an age gap can truly love and care for one another.

“He is the best husband I could have asked for, and he treats me so great.”

My bitter ex told lies to my friends about my ‘small manhood’ after I dumped her 0 47

DEAR DEIDRE: MY ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger.

She never complained when we were together, but last week she told the girls in our group that being with me was “like kissing a soggy lettuce leaf” and that she “literally didn’t feel a thing when we were having sex” because I’m so small.

My ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger

I’m 25 and she’s 24. I think part of it is jealousy.

She knows a couple of the other girls fancy me and I think she’s trying to sabotage any chance I have with them.

Not that I’m even planning anything.

She’s so insecure and has a vicious tongue on her.

I’m tempted to let each of her so-called friends know what she really says about them in private.

Even her best friend gets a nasty critique every time she posts anything on Instagram.

I don’t regret splitting up with her but this last trick has really infuriated me.

You could maybe reply with: “Let’s just say she never complained when we were together and nor have any of my other exes.”

Your friends will soon see her behaviour for what it is – jealous insecurity.

My partner said he was on a work trip – but he was actually getting married and on his honeymoon 0 30

DEAR DEIDRE: MY partner said he was on a work trip two months ago, but he had actually got married and been on honeymoon.

Our relationship had become a bit predictable, but we still had regular sex and nice days out with our two young sons.

My partner lied about his work trip – he was really on his HONEYMOON

I’m 32 and he’s 37. Our sons are four and two.

When he returned from his “work trip” he blamed me for his cheating, saying I had let myself go and didn’t pay him enough attention.

He then told me he’d “traded up” for a better model. It didn’t stop there.

He said that his wife, who is 27, is absolutely stunning and makes him feel special.

Apparently this woman was a barmaid he’d met on a golf trip and they had been seeing each other for six months.

He told me all this, then marched upstairs and packed his games console and his clothes and drove off out of my life.

The thing is, we always talked about getting married but when we had kids there always seemed something better to spend our money on.

Mutual friends have told me he has moved into a new-build home on the other side of our small town and his wife has plenty of family money.

My sons are really missing him and I don’t even know how I feel.

Sometimes when he comes to visit the boys I beg him to come home.

But other times I’m so angry with him, I refuse to let him in.

Now he is accusing me of stopping him from seeing his children.

DEAR DEIDRE

I caught my husband snogging my sister – how am I meant to trust him again?

DEIDRE SAYS: I’m so sorry your partner ended your relationship in such a cruel way.

This man sounds selfish and immature, and quite frankly the way he has treated you is emotionally abusive.

It won’t feel like it now, but you really are better off without him.

He is behaving like he still lives in your home, by just turning up unannounced.

Tell him firmly that you would encourage a good relationship between him and your sons but he can only collect them with prior arrangement.

Start to put down your boundaries.

I’m sending you my support pack When Parents Fall Out, which you could pass to him to help explain why you need to co-operate for the future wellbeing of your children.
