Now, my expectations for men are not based on age. You only have one life and it's really short. Also, you mentioned that the congregation prayed that he would find someone and when he did, they didn't care so long as she would take care of him. He doesn't yell at me for it or tell me how childish I am. I think its kinda a culture thing too. That's why he was with a girl half his age.
It has never mattered that he has already experienced many of the exciting new changes I am going through for the first time because he still makes our experience together feel special. What I do want to know is why he will not let me in and tell me how exactly he feels about me. When the roles are reversed and an older man dates a younger woman, the men are often congratulated and revered. The age thing doesn't really bother me. For instance, he's not worried when I talk to another guy, nor does he care how many pairs of shoes I have. I completely freaked out and thought we were being evicted or something.
Are you always up for something fun and spontaneous? Now, insert a significantly older partner in that picture. I'm 19 years old and been dating a man who is 36 for over a year. My fiance is 5 years older than me and I give him crap all of the time. However, if you have an unsettling feeling about the relationship, it might pay to listen to the advice of others who care about you. And when he did, i guess they didn't care what kind of girl she was, so long as she would take care of him. He's not afraid of being goofy and sweet, which includes wearing pink, or donning a funny hat.
See older men have always gone for me, my sister says i have a mature, plus i have always acted older then my age. But, he never made me uncomfortable and let me go at my own pace. But don't close your eyes to what the future will almost certainly bring. Ok now I know everyone is going to start shouting sexism but hey I just wanted to inject some humour on this sunny day : If you are happy and he treats you well then that is more than half the battle. So, after grappling with my own insecurities and the societal taboos, there were also the judgments of friends and family. If you both are older, the 10-year gap probably won't seem like a big deal.
When I was your age, I was eating ramen every night and sharing a bedroom with a friend. He helps out around the house -- whether or not I ask him to! Crazy chick · 24 Oct 2017 I am 28 and my boyfriend of a year is 41. I totally understand how you feel. If he makes u happy and treats u well, then wats the big deal, go for it. One thing would concern me, tho'. Or, Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones, who are 25 years apart in age? My husband is 12years older than me. But i believe age does not matter.
He likes how i can be immature at times to, shows him i can have some fun. My spouse's earning capacity waned while my friends' spouses were reaching their peak earning years. My husband is 11 years older than me. Anonymous · 09 Apr 2009 Hi Purple a friend of my fathers, at 50, fell for an older sister of a schoolmate of mine she was 28. In fact, an older man is more sensitive to your feelings. He was relatively seasoned and more advanced in his field. Yes we have our arguements, but who doesn't? You will never keep people happy, so don't even involve their personal opinion in your personal relationship.
Moreover, I often want to hide away — to avoid family functions, social outings, and not have to face people eye to eye. First of all, why can no one here spell? I am over 30 so am in settled mode but I feel if I was 20 wanting to party all the time and going out with somebody whho was 11 years older then who wanted a settled life, that things may be different. I love this man with my soul and we are getting married next year. Feel free to encourage an opportunity for the both of you to cook together. Initially when we met I completely ruled out the idea of dating him.
Me personally I feel that if the man treats you right and loves you for you there is nothing wrong. People do make sacrifices for love all the time. But as soon as they met him they loved him. He has never been married and he does have an older son. He got shocked with the age difference, but he insisted he doesn't care about that, and was getting worked up that I even thought of that. They will pay the bills, help with doing the laundry and keep valuable stuff safe.
