Also I think I’m scared to publish this while we’re still dating for fear of jinxing the dang thing. He hasn’t been doing his own thing forever, so to speak, so there’s metaphorical room for me in his life.
It seems like maybe we can share life more easily, rather than me feeling like I’m tagging along in someone else’s plans.
And then you learn that the same year you graduated college, he was wrapping up his freshman year—of high school.
Dating someone younger—whether you’re two or three years his senior or are talking cougar territory—certainly can work (look at Eva Longoria and her 4-years younger beau), but being an “older woman” in a relationship does tend to come with certain perks and downfalls.
To say men JUST want sex, especially young men, isn’t a fair assessment.
They’ve been having sex for years, and it’s not like they can’t get it if they want it.
Men in their 30's are still about having fun, adventuring, exploring and building their career, and they appreciate a drama free connection with a woman.
