Christian dating younger men
They were introduced by Sutherland’s sister, who was one of Wipp’s law school classmates, at a beachside barbecue.
Wipp was immediately attracted to Sutherland’s youthful energy, which was a far cry from the cynical guys closer to her age.
“I love that she loves me so much, and that I mean a lot to her,” says Sutherland.
“I can tell because she always makes me feel wanted.” Alan Angal, 36, was attracted to his older fiancée, Jennifer Siegner, 45, for her stability.
Prior to meeting Siegner in 2012, Angal was a tour manager for a music company and had a lifestyle he describes as “sex, drugs and rock ’n’ roll.” He mostly dated party girls in their 20s.
But when he was set up with Siegner by a mutual friend, matchmaker Sameera Sullivan, he says his life turned around.
“It was love at first sight,” Angal says of meeting Siegner, a buxom blonde who was a successful account executive at a graphic design company at the time.
Such May-December couplings are no longer seen as relationship outliers — or indicative of deep-seated mommy issues.
When it came to finding love in New York, Amber Soletti, a 42-year-old who lives in the West Village, had no luck dating older guys or men her own age.
While they were “well-established and articulate,” she wasn’t physically attracted to them and found they had too many issues.
“With some women I dated, they wanted to play games, but Jennifer always communicated that she wanted something real,” Angal says.
“I always knew where I stood with her.” Soon after they met, he cleaned up his act and left the entertainment industry.
