I can not imagine my life without him and I thought we would have a better chance of going at the same time if I made some unhealthy choices." it's really awful for my husband (and me) to watch..there's not much we can do to prevent it.
I love this, and it sounds like our future but hopefully kids in the next few years before I'm 40.
It depends on whether or not the two of you can meet somewhere in the middle and make something wonderful of your time together while you can. There was the other pros of going out for nice dinners (she made around -0k) and doing stuff and having conversations about things that I'd never really do with a girl of my age.
His friends teased me a lot early on about being just a baby.Now that we're older, I notice that his taste in music is really My Inlaws are going through this right now. My FIL only has one working lung, and a laundry list of other health problems, not to mention he's just friggin tired.We have similar responses from other people with concerns of "how it works" and they just have to see us interact to believe it. Great girl though and I think we both drew much experience (at least I felt I did). As long as she was of legal age then fuck them, she can make her own damn decisions.Also I hate how people don't even know what pedophile means. Pros: No bullshit/"games" that I had to put up with when trying to date girls my age or younger. Whatever was on her mind she would talk about and she would call me out on my faults. She knew exactly what she wanted, how to get it, and had her years of experience on me.
She had many more years of life experience and wisdom to draw on, and we had great conversations. She wanted it more than girls my age did and it was seriously the best sex I've ever had.
Realizing your new boyfriend is just a few years younger than your father is a harsh reality.
Remind yourself what ignited this initial attraction and focus on that.
I have just started a relationship with someone a little older than me, only 5 years but the main thing I noticed is how broody she is!! We joke, I mention stuff like "when I was in HS, you know, yesterday". I'm from Brasil, the culture is different anyways, but there are still times where my generation would do something one way that shocks her to no end.
I've noticed the condescending part about her too, you've gotten the description really accurate. There's quite a bit more of a difference, but in the end it's more how much you're willing to make things work regardless of the age difference. She's still the love of my life, and the obsticals we face and have faced only make us stronger... We've developed a system for things mainly, to try to be understanding of things like that and accept adventure in our lives as it comes...
Obviously this is only one person's experience and others will vary, but this is all I could contribute.
