"I'm a grandmother, but I only date men younger than my son: he's 29"
The world of social networking is a place where people can interact in many different ways: you can recognise someone's voice on Twitter or see their profile on Facebook without ever having to meet them. Ours is an era of global community, where we can meet people we would never otherwise have met - perhaps with interests similar to ours.
Tara, a charming 49-year-old grandmother, understands this very well and chose to use social media to date men younger than her 29-year-old son - and receiving both criticism and compliments for doing so.

Unlike many women who try to hide their age, Tara proudly displays hers at every opportunity, introducing herself as a "glamorous grandmother" to her over 845,000 social media followers. Tara, who has fathered four children since she was 19, has no problem showing off her lifestyle. Referring to her age, Tara stated: "In just 10 years, I will be 58 years old and I already have two teenage grandchildren. It will be difficult for my children to refer to my fiancé (or husband, if he's lucky) as 'Dad'. He'll probably be younger than them!" she joked.
Tara's followers are captivated not only by her beauty but also by her ability to shake off the stigma around old age. In fact, she sees her maturity in years as "an opportunity to age gracefully, like a fine wine." Despite her positive attitude, Tara says she still feels surprised and flattered when her suitors reveal themselves to be half her age.
Sharing old photos with her followers and friends on social media, Tara enjoys comparing her current look to her past. But not everyone is ready to accept the fact that a "grandmother" can be so "liberal": many users have, in fact, criticized her lifestyle, accusing her of using filters and a lot of make-up to look attractive.
Other followers, however, say that with her boldness and desire to have fun, Tara is a source of inspiration for those who want to live their lives to the fullest, regardless of age. What do you think about this story?
