The comedienne is 35, Ben was 29 when they started dating. The two have gotten serious; they’ve moved in together, and Amy has said that the two are crazy in love.I am in my mid-forties and I have been online dating off and on for about 2½ years and dating in general for 4 years.I am a year and a half out of a relationship and in that time, I have found only one guy I was interested in but he did the vanishing act.It can be tough when you and your older partner can’t share childhood commonalities (dude’s never read a book!?
