Eva Braun worked in Heinrich Hoffmann's photographic shop and Hitler was a regular there, as the NSDAP offices were located upstairs in the same building. The rest is chemistry!

Seems perfectly understandable to me. Man sees beautiful teenage girl (she was 17 when he first met her) and is sexually attracted to her. Woman meets older man on the up and up with growing money, power and influence. Another example: Hermann Göring's father was about 27 years older than his mother - they married when she was the delicate age of 19. Repeated ad infinitum all over the world. What's the confusion here?

Power is the ultimate aphrodisiac.

History is littered with politicians and dictators who had young women falling at their feet with admiration.

I remember watching an interview during the Libyan revolution where 2 teenage girls were interviewed in a marketplace in Tripoli and said they'd die for Gaddafi. Both were obviously infatuated by him. The cult of personality does strange things.

Donald Trump still has legions of beautiful young women in their early 20s who'd crawl over broken glass for him.

Altersunterschiede in Partnerschaften / Age disparity in sexual relationships

Interesting, but very definitely not a topic, that anyone would go on about on an internet forum...

Mutual affection, and possibly later love, has little to do with one's age.
If the above-mentioned "chemistry" is right, fits, then everything is possible, everything, without a respect of age, status, physicality.
That's life, we are all instinct-driven beings, each of us.

Es ist im Leben wichtig, viel zu wissen.
Manchmal ist es noch wichtiger, zu wissen, daß man nichts weiß.
