14 Year Gap!
I am 23 years old and I am engaged to a 37 year old. Now let me tell you a few things about this one. We are 14 years apart in age and have been dating since I was 19, he was a 33 at the time, and we lived together for the past 2 1/2 years about. We will be together 4 years in August and that's when we are getting married. My family have been somewhat supportive. My mother has had a hard time only for the fact that they are closer in age--like 8 years, and my stepdad and him are even closer in fact it's a 4 year gap for them. My dad on the other hand never approved in the beginning and 4 years later still can't move on and accept it. We are planning a wedding and I feel like I shouldn't even have the people at my wedding come that never supported the relationship after these almost 4 years. But you need to learn that it's all about you and that other person, because they're the one that's going to be the one you want to be with forever. And even if they are much older, you might die before them, you never know. Also, another reason for dating an older man is the "been there, done that" I can't tell you how much that comes in handy. Had a baby? "Been there, done that." Bought a house? "Been there, done that"Ever bought a car by yourself? "
Been there, done that. Have a steady job and getting paid good--yes!!! Those are some really good things if you like a man that can teach you and you can learn from them, rather than learn together. I don't know about you but I like to ask my man a question and get an answer. Not a responce of "I don't know." Because he hasn't grown up enough to experience anything. Well ladies, that 's the words of the wise. I have learned that there are some good things that come out of being with an older man. Either you do or you don't.
