Dating someone who is older than you
The harsh reality is, because he’s 29 years older than me, I’m probably destined to spend a large chunk of my future without my love.Presuming we both live a healthy lifespan, I’ll be in my 50s or 60s when he goes.It’s sad that I’m constantly accused of being with him for his money (he doesn’t really have any.) My parents looked like they’d seen a ghost when I first brought him over for Sunday dinner.I can’t blame them, after all they’re about the same age.Often the thought of going to his funeral keeps me awake at night.
Since we met, I’ve stopped drinking so much and having casual sex to feel better about myself.
I just hope that 60-year-old me will be strong enough to focus on the happy memories, rather than the grief of losing the man she loved.
When you find someone who captures your heart you may discover yourself in a relationship that is very different from what you were expecting, and perhaps even with someone you could never have imagined.
They’re polite when he’s around, but often ask me if I’m really sure about what I’m doing.
I know they desperately want grandchildren and are secretly praying for me to change my mind.
