We have sent so many messages to each other and have video chatted on skype and since he lives about a four hour drive away, we've talked about making plans to visit. You're right to find it a little disconcerting - it is a big age gap - but one that she's apparently comfortable with for the moment. I've had two boyfriends, one was 3 years older than me, and the other one was 2 years older. He's selfless, kind, thoughtful, supportive, and mature. We do love each other, and speaking for myself, I will always love him.
I dont care what anyone thinks about it. We love each other, and we fit together well, so why should age matter? Its a lot of waiting, because where I come from, women who don't get married before 25 are considered 'old', but obv i have to make concessions for his age which I do happily. He is so respectful of all of the achievements I have, sweet and very loving…he also talks me up so much to his friends as though I'm a princess I like to think it's not just because I'm older and have done more, but still…. His mum worked at the same company as my dad. Why does that one thing bother me? I finally agreed to go out with him on a date two years later in hopes that he would get over his infatuation and move on to someone his own age. Socially You may need to start skipping the traditional Thursday through Sunday bar scene with the girls to appease his lifestyle.
I am 41 and starting to talk to an 18 year old…. Drinks, dinner, and gifts all on his dime. I enjoyed reading all of your posts. The people who claim to find them disgusting seem to be inexperienced about the infinite variety of loving adult relationships. Most of the time I forget our age difference even exists.
I moved back home for the children so partner and i could work out proper separation. Anonymous My story is a bit different. I want to see where this goes for a while. We play fight together, go to dinner we have genuine fun no matter what we do. I'm dating someone 8 years older than me now and he's the most immature guy I've ever dated but it's charming. If your family is fairly protective, especially your dad, it can be a pretty nerve-racking conversation.
Any personal flaws you once saw in yourself now have completely dissipated. I get the occasional look -- especially when we go out for drinks and get carded hey, at least I'm still getting carded and I'm pretty sure more than one person thought that, with our similar hair, skin and eye colors, that we were either brother and really older sister or mom and son, but the pros far outweigh the cons in our relationship. Do the people who think that also believe people from different countries should not date, as they did not grow up the same way? Now dating my bf who's of course 6 years younger than me, alot of people would question and compare. We have two great kids and a home filled with happiness and laughter. I have this guy at my gym I've been friends with for awhile. I had been on a few dates with 30-somethings, but nothing really came of those. This is something that you, your love, your doctor and God will need to figure out together.
There is nothing wrong or gross or manipulative about dating a younger man. Turns out she felt the same way. I told her what the situation was and she helpfully boiled it down for me. I'm 22 year old guy dating a 42 year old woman and my family ain't happy about it but I'm happy with her and she feels the same way, the only thing holding us back is my parents because I didn't want to keep things from them. Mostly torturous, but I think that had more to do with his personality than his age. He has the opportunity to show me new things, share knowledge and stories, and encourage me in my decisions, while I'm able to bring him back to the fun side of life, spontaneity, and remind him that it's okay to be an idiot sometimes.
Never said a negative word to me. Their relationship will always be more important to him than I ever could have been. That said, I was 20 when I met my 25-year-old boyfriend. I do have to say that he is such a gentleman, very respectful, responsible, kind, etc! Then a day before our three year anniversary he dumped me through text saying he only had time for his kid and himself. We lasted 18 years and then she had enough.
This formular is not set in stone. Mine was 15 yrs my junior and I am a very young person for my age and my looks are not telling either! He is very mature for his age and we have so much fun together and it is so much easier being with him than anyone from my past. Anonymous I currently am 28, and I have it bad for a 22 year old. I grew up way too quickly with hardships, but also got the major partying stage out of my system. Almost all of the guys I've dated have been about ten years younger than me.
Unlike you, I tried to second guess God. We'll do cardio together and chat the whole time, sometimes we lift weights together, etc. Both my fiance and I are divorced so we understand a lot much about each other and what we've been through. He never cared from the beginning and after people had told me that itd not a big deal I began not caring about it either. I also learned that sometimes you will feel restricted in living your life the way you want because your partner has less interest in going back to that stage of life again.
