Accidentally Fell In Love

It was really simple. I took my son to see him because he's a dentist. He had never even looked at me the first couple visits but on the 3rd visit he looked at me and before we left his office he had my number in his pocket. He was so handsome and charmed me from the beginning. Not 30 minutes after I left the office he called me and wanted to go out that night. Eventually he told me about "Her" (his girlfriend) and at first I was ok with it because after all he was sweet and I had just got out of a bad controlling relationship and wasn't looking for anyone that I had to answer to. At first it was just sex and he would do nice things for me but after spending so much time together we started talking and really getting to know each other. Before I knew it I had completely fallen in love with the person he is, despite his obvious flaw. I didn't mean to fall in love with him and I didn't intend on telling him at all but one night we were laying beside the mini waterfall in his backyard and I blurted it out and he said he was falling in love with me too. We've had several conversations about our future, you see he is really much older than me, and he is really insecure about that. He's worried that as he gets older I will get bored with an old man and leave him for a man closer to my age. He says that's why he stays with her even though he is unhappy (they have a long distance relationship, she lives 2 hours away) with several aspects of their relationship. So here I am 2 years later, in love with this man. I've tried to leave him and the situation but I got drawn back in. I even tried moving away from him but I ended up moving back even closer to his house than I was before. I used to live on the outskirts of town and now I'm two blocks away from him. Our lives are so entwined because I've worked for him almost as long as we've been together and his son and my son are so close. When we are together it all just clicks until the weekends when he leaves to be with her.

You can't always control what the heart ( or other parts of your body ) wants, but working with the man you're seeing can be a tricky situation. If for whatever reason it doesn't work out, you're not only looking for a job, but also trying to get over a relationship. I'm surprised his son hasn't spilled the beans in front of his gf....good luck with that

Oh you should read my other experience. The situation got even more complicated lol.

I would agree lol....It's hard to understand how the age gap thing works with his psyche...you never mention his son's mother, is that an ex wife or the gf? Things will work out, you're still young and I'm sure, beautiful or you wouldn't be in this predicament.

His son's mom and him divorced almost 8 years ago. Th GF is someone he started seeing later.
