I am dating a man 12 years older than me
As someone who’s been single for a REALLY long time (six years), I was at the place in my life where I accepted that “It” might never happen for me, “It” being falling in love again, partnership, or even the big “M” word (I won’t even touch on the topic of children because that’s a rabbit hole I don’t want to go down).Let’s just say I’ve always been one of those women who felt, “If it happens, great!I’ve loved all kinds of men, so I figured why cut anyone out?My ex was a sober addict (that was an education in and of itself) and I’ve been with military men, musicians, actors, lawyers, and at least one teacher.Her advice to me was, “Don’t do the math of, ‘When he’s ___ age, I’ll be ___ age. The numbers began to dissolve in my head and I became able to just see a man there.It’ll fuck you up and you’ll get it stuck in your head.”Good point. Still, I couldn’t help the ever-present Google search of “Older Women, Younger Man Guide” and the plethora of information that came with it.About three months ago, I found out David left his live-in girlfriend and was single.I’d be lying if I said that I wasn’t excited, even though he’s 14 years my junior.
In fact, I got over that pretty quickly and now it’s just two people who connect and have off the charts, incredible, mind blowing sex.
I never thought twice about our relationship until i realized i was going to have to tell my mom.
We value the same things, he makes me incredibly happy, and i love him.
One of my girlfriends is 51 and her husband of 16 years is 40.
They have an amazing relationship and he adores the crap out of her.
