Can't Wait to Explore This.

About a month ago, I encountered a guy online who is 53 and I'm 37 years old.  He's awesome and sexy.    We just clicked from the start.  Now, we pretty much chat online every single day. He's living overseas and will return within a few weeks where I hope we can REALLY start getting to know each other and hopefully meet soon.  No guarantees right now.

I'm infatuated and excited to explore this potential relationship.  But the only issue is that he wasn't upfront with me about his age.  I found that out on my own using internet technology,.  At first, I was a little disappointed that he was so much older than me.  But right now, I don't care that he's 53.  I just want to get to know him as a person and see if we have potential to move forward. 

So far, he seems to have a lot of traits I'm looking for.  The REAL test is whether or not he'll come clean with me about his age really soon.

Something to think about.. is if he wasn't up front with you as something as simple as his age, would he not be honest with other things in his life? You don't want to be with someone who is not honest out of the gate. Keep an eye out for the red flags!

I am an older man as well and I totally agree with the other two! You are 37, he's 53, I'm sure he is scared to death of losing you if he revealed his age. At least he didn't lie about how old he is, so that should make you feel better to.<br />

Ask him if he is really 53 and if so you just want to get to know him for him. <br />

Good luck! I absolutely love these romances!!

I agree with Ed . I have dated older and younger . It all deoends on the person

As an older man, I can tell you that what he did is because of his own insecurity. Please don't hold it against him, I'm sure he would rather you know the truth, but he is probably afraid that you would reject him. <br />
Tell him that you know and that it doesn't matter, if that is how you truly feel. He is still the same person, just older, and isn't age just a number. <br />
