Best Wishes My bf is 35 and I'm 18 at first I was scared but I really fell in love with him and we get along so good his daughter is a few years younger than me and loves me his family loves me and age is nothing but a number as long as your mature enough to handel the situation thers shouldn't be any problems. i hear you but if he is that older than you take my word for it he wants a women he can control.. I just cant see her being ok with me having a relationship with someone twice my age. My only plan is to say that i think i really fancy him and then tell her that we kissed one time and that he wants to take me to coffee. I am 41 and my bf is 57 going to be 58 in few months..... But i told my parents they said ok you have my blessings...a week later they acted a fool. Just make sure you are ready for emotional and mental stress ok ? I didnt want to, but after a while, you see your parents true colors and see if they really care about your happiness Remember: Those who mind, dont matter and those who dont mind, matter Well handle it carefully..To this day, one of my biggest regrets was not having an honest conversation about our future earlier on, which I know now would've saved us both years of heartache.Because I believe in happy endings, I feel compelled to tell you that I'm still blissfully exploring new cities and he went on to start a successful business so we're both doing just fine.my mom loves him, but i've had alot of trouble because people judge us. so idont care what people think about me its my life not theres i was with a 30 and im 37 and i got picked on but i just laughed and told them i picked him up at the highschool.so just tell them that you picked him up at the nursing home.they bust your **** or say something to you.. tell them look stop talking **** that you dont want to hear it anymore and if they cant accept who you are with then i would talk to them anymore.. I have gone through the same with people (freinds) who have had opinions of me and what I do. You will never keep people happy, so don't even involve their personal opinion in your personal relationship. If anyone says anything to you or even looks at you strangely,just say "I'm respected" that's what matters to me! That is normal in some cultures and not a bad idea.
Compromising in a relationship is a good thing as long as neither person feels compelled to change who they are as a person.Hoffman explains that this dilemma is actually quite common in relationships where one partner is significantly older than the other.She warns, "If you want to focus on your career and your partner wants to have kids right away, there could be a mismatch almost instantly." Don't I know it?I'm 19 years old and been dating a man who is 36 for over a year. hes so nice and caring, respectful, and i have a great time with him. as long as you are happy and your family likes him.isnt a difference if you care and love someone.. and your freinds are younger so im sure they bust your ****.. to love and to be loved then to never have it at all let them make opinions.dont think they are entitled to give judgments.. enjoy with ur bf..thats the best thing.mom accepts him.isnt sufficient? Do you have any problem with your bf in sexual part? If he is caring and respectful of you and you are having a great time - sounds good for you ! In the end it should all be worth it if he is the one.... Remember you don't need their approval, you do not have to allow them to come between you and your BF if they are anti him, but it will make things easier if they know things and support you. But have answers prepared for all the questions they may ask.i am not interested in boys my age because they are really immature. dont let them get to you there gonna meet someone and get hurt or whatever but in the end you have your prince and your happy.. I have taken great pride in myself in being the same with everyone I know. I have not spewed my problems to anyone that will listen. I adore this man., we have laughed and cried together,.. I am worried in few years he will have problem in that department. thanks To everyone I am 30 and with a man who is 49 we have been together since i was 17.. So dont bother with what others think or have to say, follow your heart. I think that's great and I'm just glad you're happy.
