Younger guy dating older men
Are you sure that part of your questioning isn't related to a fear-related pre-emptive strike?For example, do you want to leave him before leaves you, since, of course, all older men get dumped?He could also choose to stay (and you could grow in similar ways and find more common ground) or leave for reasons completely unrelated to age. You have to make the best decision you can with the information and feelings you have at the time.Given the focus on age, it's not strange at all that you have conflicted feelings.For example, maybe he'd be willing to read the paper a little more and discuss it with you?
He's your first gay love, which, in some ways, may put you closer in emotional age than you realize.
It's hard to ignore the gay community's — OK, let's get real, mostly gay male — ageism.
But I hope you'll tackle this issue head-on, before your fear-focused hardwiring leads you to short-circuit a relatively good relationship for the wrong reasons.
Then again, I know that while I am in fantastic shape now, the law of gravity will catch up with me long before him. For every rule (date someone your own age), there's an exception (a May-December romance that's lasted for years).
Yes, he could wake up one day, decide that being with an older man doesn't work for him and leave you.
