And I would never let someone stand in the way of the man I love. He tells me this all the time.
I am currently in a relationship with an 18 year difference. He is my soulmate, love of my life. He brings so much joy to my life.
The age difference raised some eyebrows at first but once the people on both of our sides got to know us — they realized we were a perfect match. Im wynn 25 years old i am well educated women and i am always involbe having an old man bf in my life. Its 35 years age gap. Hi I am 52 and my bf is 23…. I felt used in the beginning.. If a 25 yo guy told u that he love u and want to spent the rest of his life with u.
Just video call and chatting. Is it consider as a real love or just a passers by? Hi I just turned 19 years old and my 35 year old boyfriend and I have been together for a little over a year now. Our relationship is complex and I feel any of our personal issues we have we can fix together, which we usually do. We actually went some time without talking or seeing each other.
My mom is old fashioned but young and hip and has an opinion about everything. She means everything to me so I really want to know how and if it will ever get easy being with an older man. If my family hates him should I stay with him? Its becoming hard and stressful trying to balance to the lives I now live.
I know I can never pick anyone over family. Which fits cause we bicker like a married couple. Id appreciate any opinions or advice on anything I talked about. Thanks in advance! We know our parents they will alwalys protect us bcause they do want to see us hurt. When we met, i had just turned 16 and he had just turned We are still going strong after being together for almosg two years already. I love him deeply and we plan to get married after im 18, which i will be this year. Any advice on how to bring this relationship out into the open? Make sure he wont go to jail. Any adult that you tell may turn into agent Smith from the Matrix and it will all come crashing down.
If you truly love him and it isnt just about your own personal drama and attention be very very careful what you do and say to ANYONE. This will ruin both your lives If the wrong people learn of your relationship. They will take over everything and do their best to ruin you both and it will be the worst pain of your life. Please listen. Love is blind and this kind of thing happens for several simple reasons.
A man has instin cts to choose a mate millions of years old. We are mammals lol. Guys are sometimes caught off guard by this when it happens and get into trouble with a young fertile woman not yet legal. I had an older bull mastiff that jumped through a glass window to mate with a young female in her first heat. Society cannot accept that male humans are relatively new in the universe to denying their primal instinct to mate and live on instead of becoming extinct.
If you dont feel bad about getting him into serious trouble now just wait. You wont be 16 very long and the rest of your life is a very long time to feel that pain. Be smart, make plans and noone goes to that grim grey meat locker full of hopeless zombies. I do want a life together but sometimes get scared if people will see us different because of our age.
I guess u rili hv something going since u still together. Above 18 age is irrelevant, even though u still growing but u no longer regarded as a child by law. I dated around a little and then became happy having an independent life… Then this happens!
So here it is. Truly I believe that. People are shocked when I tell them my age. We have been talking but have not yet dated, although he has asked me. Good luck to you! I advise you to run before you get too deep. Age has been very difficult for him to deal with.
He has tried to get over the age gap and he says he cant. He is very mature for his age. How did you overcome telling parents etc? I wish everyone the best of luck in their relationships. The answer is that we just have to find a reasonable way to stop the aging process haha. There are reasons for things that happen that we do not understand so we react in fear, anger and suspicion.
How will we ever grow if our society forms hit squads for every little evolution? Like fish in a fish tank being picked to death. On my planet you are all safe to date and marry out of your age and be accepted. Family will be provided for you in the event that your biological family fails you. Thank you and have a nice life. I read your post and could have cried hearing this guy is as old as your oldest son. I am devastated and am hurt beyond words. Hi, As a word of encouragement.
