She told me she never thought my marriage was the end of my story.
There was something between us that transcended logic.
We met the following week, and I spilled the tale of my failed marriage. It was under renovation, but we snuck into a dark conference room to admire the stunning Nile view … It was a great kiss — until a security guard pointed his massive flashlight at us and shooed us away.
The last time that had happened to me, I'd been in the back of my high school boyfriend's car. A few days after our kiss, he said he considered us a couple, and a week later, he told me he loved me.
When my marriage collapsed in a cascade of discoveries about my husband, I did what many women before me have done: I fled to a place where I thought I would be able to heal and find clarity.
But my elected haven wasn't a mecca for eating or praying.
When I step back and take an objective look at us — he's 26, I'm 48 — I think I must look ridiculous.
Then I remind myself that if it were he who was 20 years older, neither I nor anyone else would think twice, and I realize that I'm falling prey to the same sexism I bemoan.
Instead, I chose to relocate with my two young sons to a country in turmoil, arriving on the bloodiest day in its modern history. 14, 2013, the day Egyptian forces killed more than 700 civilian demonstrators — including a British journalist who had been a guest at a dinner party I'd thrown — I moved to Egypt.
While looking for peace there may sound insane, for me, the move was a lifesaver.
While I worry that he'd prefer a woman whose body hasn't been quite so affected by gravity, he tells me many times a day how beautiful I am — even when I know I am not at my prettiest.
Because he is on TV a lot and quite well-known in Tunisia, he's always had girls throwing themselves at him (and still does). He tells me that of the hundreds of women he's met, he's never met anyone like me. It's precisely my experience and my different perspective on life that makes me interesting to him.
Realizing your new boyfriend is just a few years younger than your father is a harsh reality.
