Many of us have always been hearing that age is just a number, and that is something which soap opera actress Genesis Rodriguez can explain to you better. Why Genesis? Because she was once in a dating relationship with a man, who was much older than her.

It's understandable that love has no bounds, but what was their relationship like?

Well, in this segment today, we'll address the curiosity that you hold and also provide insight regarding the reason behind the falling apart of Genesis' love with her then boyfriend.

So let's get going!

Genesis Rodriguez Once Proved That Age Is Just A Number; Was Dating A Much Older Boyfriend!

Genesis Rodriguez is hot and super attractive, and no one can put forth a contradictory view about it. This amazing soap opera actress, who is Latino in ethnicity, was once in a dating relationship with Christian Meier, who was 17 years older than her.

But as they say, sometimes, career is the biggest roadblock to a relationship, and that was the same with their relationship!

The two did not last long because Genesis chose her career over her relationship and chose to move to California.

Back in an interview in 2016, when she was asked how it was like dating an older man, she said,

"Maybe I was mimicking my parents' relationship, because my dad is 23 years older than my mom. I fell madly in love with Christian,” 

She expressed her decision of choosing career over love as she said,

"I either stick it out with him and make it work or focus on my career. I chose my career. "

So for those who were wondering if the two ever got engaged, the answer is a straight 'NO,' as they then moved along in separate paths.

She also addressed her then love life as,

“It's always been such a freaking headache to introduce a guy to my dad because my dad is probably going to say something inappropriate, be rude or show his El Puma side.”

And in case people were unaware, her father is the iconic José Luis “El Puma” Rodriguez, who is a world famous Venezuelan singer.
