I am dating a man 15 years older than me
We were both successful in our careers, we constantly talked about current events, and had similar political and social views.
But, to be honest, it was exhausting to date him because he could never relax.
There was instant chemistry, and we have been together since. His last relationship ended poorly, and he was mistreated for far too long. I have always been attracted to guys 2 or 3 years older than I am, but never really thought of anyone older than that.
They were hesitant at first, but have always been kind to me and now that our relationship has developed (we've been together over a year) they see that I am nothing like the last woman and are supportive. They think he is having a midlife crisis, and that I have a daddy-complex. This just happened - I had no idea how old he was until a few dates in, and by that time I had already decided to see where it would go.
He had just finished law school and was working crazy hours.
Opening up one of my magazines yesterday, I flipped through to the advice section and began to scan the questions to see what issues the columnist was tackling this month.
I was immediately drawn to a question from one reader about her dad’s new girlfriend, a woman much younger than her father and only two years older than herself.
And by that, I don’t mean “you won’t ever have financial trouble,” rather, when you do have issues, he’ll probably be stable enough from maturity and that he won’t freak out.
Chances are he’s lived on his own for quite some time.
