At age 50, many mistake Jill Carpenter for 20-year-old Eric Langley’s mother — except she’s anything but.
“We have a great sex life, I think we are real hypersexual, pretty damn freaky for sure,” said Carpenter, the Daily Mail reports.
The California-based couple met on an online dating site in 2016 and have raised a few eyebrows for openly declaring their love.
“If I can tell someone’s trying to figure out whether we’re a couple I’ll slap or squeeze him on the butt or give him a kiss, I think it’s funny as hell,” said Carpenter, who also enjoys making out with her young boyfriend in public.
Carpenter, who runs an animal sanctuary, says she was drawn to Langley’s maturity and romantic nature, adding that it was clear he was looking for “the one — not a sugar momma.”
“He’s very intelligent, is very caring and we have conversations that could go on for hours,” says Carpenter. “He’s very romantic and says I love you several times a day, he likes to kiss and a lot of men aren’t into making out, he also likes to snuggle, it’s amazing.”
Langley, who is a student, agrees, saying he loves Carpenter and doesn’t care what others think of their relationship, reports The Sun.
“People stop and stare at us but we don’t care, we are just enjoying the moment,” he said.
“I don’t see young people as attractive,” added Langley. “I like the fact that I’m with a mature lady. Friends and family ask a lot of questions about our sex life and I’m keen to dispel the rumors, me and Jill are very sexually active. I wish the stigma would end around that.”
Still, he admits their age gap has caused some problems.
“I’ve had to let go of a lot of friends because they didn’t understand and even my parents asked me why I can’t like someone my own age,” said Langley.
He says his parents are starting to come around.
“My parents are both younger than Jill but they’ve said that since I’ve been in a relationship with her it has changed me for the better,” Langley said.
Some people approve of the relationship.
“Almost every time we go out and start a conversation people assume he’s my son,” said Carpenter. “When people realize we’re a couple they often say, ‘You go girl’ and congratulate me.”
