Dating a man 16 years older
Should I have 2nd thoughts about becoming more involved with this man. Just protect your boundaries and make sure that this is something that you really want... Why did you all give her thumbs up on a potential relationship? To, "sue2001"and any others who are judging me,, Are you saying that I am 24 and my love is 10?
I really like him alot and our age doesn't seem to bother either one of us. Should I let our age stand in the way of our relationship? He is likely in a very different place in his life than you are, don't sacrifice those 17 years of your life to "catch up" to where he might be in his. again, all stuff that applies to *any* relationship, right? And discourage me from persueing mine in 4 years with only 13 year difference? Is it because I am a guy you treat me differently??? I believe that as we get older age is not an issue. I think you are confusing me with another thread......
He was more exciting to be with than any of the 20-something guys I knew.
And before I even knew what a great screw he was, I was already smitten with his wit and the way he filled out a pair of pants. Should I really have let 15 years come between me and happiness, just so I could avoid judgment from girls like Sue?
But I've been watching and compiled a list of DOs and DON' Ts from Jess's experience dating the sophisticated Dermot Mulroney as Fancypants, who's a whopping twelve years older.
Russell confesses he hasn't dated since 1989 and Jess replies, "That was the year I learned to use the toaster by myself." Not so hot.
Some potential concerns to watch out for (and I do feel qualified to speak on this one, since my ex-husband was also 17 years older than I was): Other people *will* talk about you. People will question his motives, and wonder why you couldn't find someone your own age. Taminc, It appears that relationships of all sorts are the way of life these days. I think maybe interests, ie, music, the way we were raised are different but as we get older it seems easier for some reason. I am 27 the girl i am in love with is currently 14.
This could cause her to withdraw from the family in many ways and cause even bigger issues.I really should have answered her question with the long list of truly great things about dating an older man. I really like being around him and he treats me like a queen. The issues that crop up in a relationship might be related to the age difference, but the age itself isn't the issue. A good guy is hard to come by, run a background check, and take it from there. If you have an interest in this older person, having a boyfriend on the side is not being fair to either. you would 28 my age now and I can't imagine even considering a child of 14 as my mate why don't you wait until she is 30 and you are 44. are there things about him that you want to change? Seems to be the trend, older men, younger women, a chi, thing. 😉 Good men come in all shapes, sizes, colors and ages. What is his history, how many marriages, how many divorces.
