I am dating a man 15 years older than me
I'm not going to lie, the idea caught me completely off guard — but it intrigued me.Still, I had — and having many conversations about it with my best friend — I decided one date couldn't hurt. John and I hit it off instantly, and I finally started to see him in a romantic light. The only problem — at least, to some people — was John's age.It doesn't really feel like they're looking down on us, or being nosy just to gossip. If our age difference does bother someone, John and I try to brush it off.We both get that some people are not going to agree with us being together, and that's OK.After we had known each other for three years, John divorced his wife.About four months later, I found myself pausing my engagement.
I'm sure another child would instill a positive change in our family dynamic, but it's a big change.
We know how we make each other feel, and we help make each other better people.
