Then go be with him. You're 37 not 7. If your parents don't like it, then it's too bad. It's your life, not theirs. Make yourself happy.
MY first thought is, "you're 37, get a back bone,and do what you want'.<br />
But I need more info, like ....." well, have you been married 3 x already?<br />
Have your P's been supporting you and your 4 kids? Is the guy someone you met at AA ? IS your EX getting out of prison soon?<br />
THERE are a lot of unknowns here.<br />
Can you be a little more forthcoming with info....?
Why did you never respond to this?
hey u just answered ur own question... if u feel it then experience it and dont give a damn to other people opinion..<br />
to be in love only happens once in a blue moon... felt inlove once and probably now, like right now to the invisible man who I never met.
Oh come on!! You're 37 , you don't need their permissions! It's your life. You can't stay single because when your parents are ready to leave, you'd be on your own and regret listening to them. Another thing, life is very short, take your chance and have fun. (heed their warning, guard yourself well because sometimes parents are rite about a particular man).
You don't write like a 37 year old, I say listen to your parents.
age is only a number if you to have an emotional connection and love each other then that is all that matters yours parents views do not matter here its yours and his follow your heart .vinni
So you realize when you're 47 (I'll be 46 soon... I consider this to be 'the peak' of my life thus far), he'll be 67. I'm sure you've done the math long-term. But the point is, if you were to marry this man? When you're 47, you're going to want to go out at night, and he will be in bed by nine. At 57, you could potentially have already spent half a decade diapering him. For all of those years, people in public will assume you are his daughter. They will assume you are with him for his money. It's a cruel world out there, you know. I recently attempted a relationship with a man ten years older than I. It was short-lived.... the generation gap was entirely too wide. Some things to think about.
At 37 you're well past the time where you are capable of making your own decisions and as long as you aren't concerned about how your parents feel, be happy and live for yourself, not them.
If you guys love eachother then stay together. Your parents may come around someday and they may fall in love with him too as soon as they will get to know him better.
You are an adult,you need to take a stand and tell your parents that is who you love like it or not.
what's there to help? you like him, screw everyone else. do what makes your life better
hey, LIVE YOUR OWN LIFE...I'm a gay guy and my partner of 27 yrs. was EIGHTEEN YEARS OLDER THAN ME...we were together for 27 yrs. until his passing in 2000......I used to kid him that he graduated high school the year I was born!!
His family accepted me, and mine him......his health suffered in his later years and I was there to care for him, as his family lived out of town......at his funeral, I will never forget when one of his nieces, with tears in her eyes, came up to tell me how much the family appreciated all that I did for "Uncle Jimmy".....I told her it was the least I could do.........
If you love & honor & respect someone, age has no meaning....DO NOT LET YOUR PARENTS run your life for you......please? I look back on my time with this wonderful guy and have NO REGRETS.........sooooo love him, honor him, and love him some more!!
Best of luck to you in your 'own' life from now on!!!!
