An Irish man who married an American 37 years his senior has said they have a lot more in common than people realise.
Aaron, who is originally from Waterford, met Michael when he was living in New York.
He told Lunchtime Live his 'jaw dropped' when he first saw Michael.
"We'll say I have a certain type, and I don't lie or hide about that," he said.
"He was like porn I suppose I used to watch when I was younger - and I was like 'Who is this? I have to go meet this fella'.
"Initially it was honestly just a hook-up; I wasn't going looking for love I was looking for fun... then I seen this drop-dead gorgeous guy and I was like: 'Yeah, give me a bit of that'."
Michael, who is the older of the two, said Aaron had everything he was looking for.
"First of all we were texting [on] a site called Grindr; I liked his sense of humour," he said.
"He really got me when he said: 'You know, you just might be the type of man I marry'.
"We were texting back and forth, and about two weeks later he probably came over.
"I saw his blue eyes and that smile - definitely it's physical at first, but then he had so many traits I looked for in somebody.
"He was adventurous, he was brave, he was empathetic, he was honest - all these different traits and he just had them all.
"I never thought really about a younger man before."
Aaron said he wasn't even thinking about love when he met Michael.
"It is kind of crazy, but in a broad sense I never was looking to fall in love and I don't go around asking guys their ages.
"I just had that physical attraction and it turned out he was just substantially a lot older than me.
"I was really surprised by people's reactions, and most of it has been overwhelmingly, really positive.
"I'm very comfortable in it, and when people see that I'm so comfortable in it, they're kind of taken aback by it as well.
"When you meet us in person, it's not as weird as what people think... the actual fact is we have so much in common and we literally enjoy each other's company".
Aaron said he told his mother everything in one phone call.
"I kind of came out to my mother, also told her I was getting married, also to an older man in kind of the same breath", he said.
"When Mike proposed to me, I realised I probably should tell my mother.
"She was overwhelmingly onboard; she was more than [happy] just to see me comfortable in my own skin and happy.
"I think she was taken back by [it] - I can only imagine, I'd say she kept some of it to herself as well.
"It is a big age difference... but when it comes down to the two of us, you wouldn't even notice the age difference besides actually looking at us".
'Nothing to think about'
Michael said his mother-in-law has been wonderful.
"She's been nothing but wonderful to me,” he said.
"She lives in Spain, his mother, and she comes to town and when she leaves, she says, 'I have to say goodbye to my boys' and she gives us each a big hug.
"She always tells me how happy she is that we're together, she makes a point of saying how happy she is that we found each other," he added.
Michael said the decision to move to Ireland from the United States was "the easiest thing in the world, I was madly in love."
"I did it in a hot second, there was nothing to think about,” he said.
"If I stayed in America, I would have been giving up everything; it's just the way I felt.
"I still have my friends in America, I call them all the time, but I said to Aaron: wherever you'll want to be, we'll go," he added.
The couple now run a blog called Queerdaze.
