I am dating a man 12 years older than me
do not date older men (or rather, I did not date and then marry an older man) because I thought that boys my own age were too immature.
I did so because I have always preferred the company of people older than myself.
) and while this post is written with a bit of laughter, there are a few things you should remember.
Dating someone significantly older than you can be a challenge, not just between the two of you (like when you reference your favorite childhood Disney movie and they can’t relate), but also when it comes to the acceptance of friends and family.
The struggle can be all too real, and these confessions (courtesy of Whisper) show the reality – both good and bad – of having a noticeable age gap between you and your S.
It would be the same if I’d only had relationships within my own age range.
The only difference is that I got to be taken advantage of at nice restaurants, smart hotels, and the theatre.
