Woman often mistaken for her boyfriend’s MUM because of this huge gap

A woman dating a man 18 years her junior says she is fed up with being mistaken for his mother.

Cree Ingles, 49, has been dating Aaron Johnson, 31, for seven years after meeting as next-door neighbours.

But Cree insists Aaron pursued her and strongly denies being a "cougar".

The YouTube personality is now so irritated with being mistaken as her partner’s mum she wants to stress "love is love".

"It’s nobody’s business what you do behind closed doors, and if they want to make it their business they need to look inside their own lives and fix their issues before judging others," Cree, of Eugene, Oregon, USA, today said.

She added: "I don’t claim the title of cougar because he came after me, with a vengeance.

"I thought I was just messing around with the neighbour kid when he went there and made it obvious he was interested in me.

"Some people do assume that I’m his mum but we both quickly let them know that we are together.

"We have been in funny situations because the people are so embarrassed, or they are just flat out rude and stop speaking to us after we say we’re together. That’s really their issue and not ours. Love is love. Love is hard enough to find without putting restrictions on it.

"At first it felt weird because I felt like everybody was judging me, but now we just go about our day and don’t worry about it.

"A common misconception is our relationship is completely about sex. You don’t stay together with someone for over seven years and it just be about sex."

However, Cree does admit Aaron "doesn’t know what she’s talking about" with some references to 1970s and 1980s pop culture.

The YouTube star, who has also been in a long-term relationship with a woman 10 years younger than her, said: "For instance, he didn’t know who ‘The Fonz’ was. He thought it was a band.

"We have a hard time making friendships because either the men or women we try to befriend hit on him or hit on me. They don’t take our relationship seriously.

"Sometimes I will reference old sayings, I asked him if he enjoyed his time without his ‘ball and chain’ when I went out for the day without him and he had to Google to see what I meant."

The couple secured their relationship in September last year at a handfasting ceremony, a romantic gesture at which hands are crossed or tied to symbolise love.

Cree continued: "About three times a month I get called his mum or he gets called my son when we are out in public together.

Would you have an age-gap relationship?


"Although I’m used to it, it does get old that people just assume our relationship when we are together.

"I have been in previous relationships where my partners have been 10 years younger (one male, one female) but I have also been in relationships with people older than me as well."
