When it comes to relationships, it's usually a good rule of thumb not to judge what you don't understand.
But one couple's relationship has truly been under the microscope this week.
Model Willow and real estate developer David have been featured on an episode of Love Don't Judge on Barcroft TV.
And what they've had to share about their coupling has left some feeling a little uncomfortable.
Willow and David met on Tinder, and after an hour of dating, became an official couple.
The pair had a 'truly unbelievable connection,' David told Barcroft TV.
Since then, they've lived an idyllic life of luxury dates and high-end vacations.
But they claim life isn't easy when you've got a 39-year age gap in your relationship.
Willow told Barcroft TV: "People like to call me a gold digger.
"When I first met him I didn't ask how he was, I didn't ask him what he did, I just wanted to get to know him as a person first.
"We met online on a dating site and we have been together for three months."
"He still thinks it is too good to be true," she added.
David agrees that their relationship is something special, saying: "I have dated pretty girls before, but this was a connection, a real connection.
"I was a little concerned about her age, but it has been constant non-stop for the last 90 days."
And it seems that the people who really matter are supportive of the pairing.
Willow commented: "My family are really supportive of our relationship."
David added: "Her mother said 'I'm convinced you two knew each other in a prior life, I've never seen my daughter smile as much'."
On dealing with negativity, David says: "I'm not allowed to read stuff anymore because I get sensitive. Some people just say I'm a sugar daddy or 'it's nice you went to Vegas with your grandpa'."
And it's safe to say the pair do have their supporters.
One TikTok commenter wrote: "He's actually handsome, is probably extremely good to her, and treats her like a princess. I see nothing wrong at all."
Another added: "He is a grown man and knows full well she loves the good life and he is more than willing to give it to her.
So it's a mutually beneficial relationship.
"They are both consenting adults so it’s really their own business. Live and let live."
