So the current guy I am “dating” is 56 years old (a year under my mom) while I am 27 years old. Is that a problem? I don’t see his age alone as an immediate indication to stop seeing him. We get along great and we do have many things in common. However, if I met this same person at the age of 21; it would’ve been in my best interest to not get involved with any man that age. I am not nearly the same person I was two years ago, let alone six.
A friend of mines considers the age to be a bit much, and I’ll admit he’s older than what I would generally look for. But he entered my life for a reason and there’s an even greater reason why I feel the need to give him a chance and continue getting to know him better. We spent this past weekend together and I can’t recall the last time (if any) I had such a great time in one man’s company. I love our chemistry, I love doing things with him, I love our engaging conversations, and I love that regardless of our age difference there’s so much both of us can learn from one another.
So it’s now the second day of the New Year and a chance to start and try something NEW. While I value the opinion of my friends and others; I believe it’s through one’s personal experience true lessons are better learned. I love being in this man’s company and I don’t feel his age is enough reason to discontinue talking to him.
