Dating a man 10 years older
Luckily he doesn’t feel compelled to start a family or else our age gap could be a deal breaker.I have a feeling that as I become more settled in my career, my finances and adulthood the age difference will matter less (once again).I was sick of guys who saw me as a blonde barbie kind of girl, and Jordan was just the opposite.He saw past everything superficial and seemingly appreciated my soul.
I don’t feel any sense of urgency when it comes to investments and house hunting and owning furniture not from Ikea.As Jordan and I got to know each other better I realized how comfortable I was around him, he made me laugh, he never pressured of pushed me physically (in fact our first few dates I didn’t even realize were dates, oops) and I felt as if he understood me on a deeper level.As someone who always feels misunderstood and misrepresented that last part was huge.It isn’t necessarily wrong that the two of you don’t share the same issues, but it takes recognition and understanding to provide the proper level of support.
You don’t have the right to belittle your partner’s problems and he/she should give you the same respect.
It helps that I am “), but I’ve learned a few lessons that transcend my relationship and apply to anyone dating someone outside of the realm of “someone they could have known in high school” (that is plus or minus three years).
