I am 50 years old, divorced for 9 years and have a son about to leave home for college. I have a full busy single life and a career and have not been especially looking for a romantic relationship. Gradually over the past year a "buddy" who is 11 years younger than me has become a close friend. Having been "out of the action" for so long it surprised me a lot when we went to a music festival and I suddenly realized I am very attracted to him. I am not sure whether this is just fantasy that something could work out between people with our age difference. I feel like a teenager with a crush and it seems like he is finding more and more reasons to spend time together. How can I tell if it's wishful thinking on my part or it could really grow into a serious relationship?
