Im dating a man 10 years older than me
In actuality, this man is spiritually light-years ahead of most of the men (and probably women, too) that I've met before. This is often because he's been there, or somewhere similar, himself; he knows what he needed or would have needed at that time in his life. He has worked through (or at least has working through) most of his issues. For instance, he's not worried when I talk to another guy, nor does he care how many pairs of shoes I have. He He's not going to run at the first chance he gets. Instead, he sits right down and talks it through with me. He supports me wherever I am in my life, and talks me through whatever challenge I am enduring, making sure I have what I need. Even though this guy and I were 25 years apart, we had a lot in common. I didn't know then that our age gap would define the relationship. I got that; but even though I knew there was no future, I didn’t cut it off completely. After it ended, he talked to a lot of people about our relationship -- and what happened through the grapevine was unexpected. Women judged me as having an ulterior, economic motive: “She just dated him for his money,” or “She thought she could get ahead.” In our society people are so quick to judge a young, naïve woman -- never the older man who perhaps should’ve known better too. We worked in the same profession, had similar interests, and shared common philosophical views. So what if he was wrinkly, in all the places you might expect? There was zero jealousy on both sides, and I never saw him check out another woman -- due to him being satisfied, of course, but also him being well-seasoned in how to respect the opposite sex. Another lesson in dating: a fling with someone in your professional/personal circle is more often than not bad news. I have a friend who’s been married to someone for more than a decade who is 20 years older than her. Up until a few months ago, if any older man had come up to me and hit on me, I would have instantly walked away.
She divorced her first husband and married Macron 14 years later.
Looking back at that relationship now, seven years later, there are so many things I wish someone had told me before I decided to become the Lolita to this guy’s Humbert².
That, by the way, is actually a comparison I made at the time, which is so gross to me now.
That was my experience from dating a much older man.
What began as a romantic adventure into unconventional love turned into a disaster I should have seen coming from waaaay over the hill. How old you actually are doesn't necessarily have a lot to do with your lifestyle.
