Trying to Be Together
I'm a 26 year old woman in a relationship with a 45 year old man. I'm starting to fall in love, which is VERY hard for me considering I'm not that trusting of a person anyway.... He is nothing like anyone I have ever dated before. There's no guesswork as to what he wants - I don't have to read his mind or wonder if something I did was wrong. He is vary accepting of my lifestyle and job. Also he respects the fact that my two kids come first - always!
There are a few problems, though. First of all, my ex. We split up about three years ago, but he still can't seem to let go - even though he is in another very serious relationship. He gives me problems if he even suspects that I might be seeing someone. Especially if that someone happens to be someone he knows... My ex knows this man and they are friends. I'm not sure whether to end this relationship because of him or not.
Another problem is that his daughter is my age. I'm not too sure that she will be very accepting to her father having a 26 year old girlfriend.
Despite these "problems" we get along great. but I'm just really not sure how to proceed with this. I'm afraid that the age difference bothers him (he says no and that he's just worried about it bothering me.) The main problem is my ex. He just won't let me live my life!!
