I had no idea my boyfriend was twice my age when we started chatting – he tracked me down online and I couldn’t see his face

The Sun 1 month ago

A MUM-of-one whose boyfriend is 27 years older than her fell for him after he tracked her down on Facebook – but she initially had no idea of his age as she couldn’t see his face.

Terri Foster-Guy, 26, didn’t realise her now-boyfriend Kirk Campbell, 53, from Powys, South Wales, was almost three decades older than her when he friend requested her as he was wearing a Deadpool mask in his profile picture.

Terri, pictured with Kirk, admitted people mistook them for dad and daughter

Despite the couple’s large age gap – and the regular dirty looks they get from people in the street – Terri says Kirk is the love of her life.

Carer Terri told Fabulous Digital: “Kirk and I don’t care what the world thinks about us because we are too in love.

“Kirk’s age doesn’t matter to me. I adore him for the person that he is.

“Whenever people confuse him for my father, we just laugh it off.”

Kirk is nine years older than Terri’s mum – but she’s happy for her girl

The couple met in October 2015 after they attended a Comic-Con event in Swansea and Kirk subsequently added Terri on Facebook.

Terri explained: “We didn’t meet that day but the next day Kirk added me on Facebook.

“I had no idea who he was because his photo was him in a Deadpool costume, so I couldn’t see his face.

“He told me he’d seen me at the Comic-Con event and we got chatting.

“I then realised he lived one street away.”

The following day, Terri arranged to meet Kirk at a nearby shop, despite not knowing what he looked like.

Terri explained: “When I saw him for the first time, I could tell straight away that he was older.

“He had a wrinkled smile and slightly greying hair.”

She continued: “But he was incredibly charming and lovely.

“He told me he was 49, 27 years my senior, but I didn’t care at all.

“I discovered Kirk was a single dad to his son, Mason, 11, and I told him I was a single mum to my daughter, Olivia, seven.

“We had so much in common.”

From then on, Terri and Kirk met up with their kids for play dates at a park.

Four months later, the pair became a couple.

Terri said: “Soon I took on the role of step mum to his son straight away.”

He had a wrinkled smile and slightly greying hair. But he was incredibly charming and lovely.

She added: “Kirk also became a wonderful stepdad to Olivia.”

Two months later Terri broke the news of her new relationship to her mum, Beverly Foster, 44, a carer and stepdad, Michael Foster, 47.

She explained: “Kirk was older than them both.

“They weren’t happy at first and Mum said Kirk was too old for me.

“But once they met him, they saw how much I cared for him.

“They were happy that I’d found love, and they really hit it off with Kirk.”

Kirk tracked Terri down on the internet

One month later Kirk introduced Terri to his family, who accepted their love straight away.

But despite gaining the support of their families, Terri and Kirk faced comments from strangers.

In September 2016, the couple visited the doctor who mistook Kirk for Terri’s father.

She said: “I said Kirk was my partner and the doctor had the most confused look on his face.

“It was actually quite funny seeing it register on his face.

“Kirk didn’t mind, we just laughed.

Kirk’s age doesn’t matter to me. I adore him for the person that he is.

“After that, whenever Kirk and I went to the shops or for a walk with the kids, people gave us dirty looks.

“It bothered me at first, but now I shrug it off.

“Whenever I went out with the kids, lots of people assumed I was Mason’s biological mum.

“They all thought I’d had him at 14.

“I had to explain that I’m his step mum.

“It’s funny how strangers jump to conclusions.”

Terri is devoted to her man

Despite cruel judgements from strangers, the couple are happier than ever.

Terri said: “We are a perfect little family.

“It’s very sad that people out there judge others for being in an age gap relationship.

“Whether it’s a two-year difference or a 20-year difference, love is love.

“It’s doesn’t matter how old Kirk is, I know he’s my soul mate.

“And I don’t care what anyone else thinks.”

Previously a couple with 29-year age gap forced to move after strangers brand husband a PAEDO.

And a student, 19, insists that ‘love has no age limit’ after falling for lover, 52… but her family have disowned her over the 33-year age gap.

And Courtney is a granny-of-three at 25 – after marrying a man 34 years older than her (and their sex life is amazing).
