Now, I’m not saying these are conscious reasons why dating a man quite a bit older—there have been several moments when I’ve thought that going out with someone closer to my age would be much simpler.I even tried it when my boyfriend and I took a short break, and I found it was painstakingly difficult and more complicated than my experience dating an older guy.

I am falling for him fast and have no intentions of ending what we have.He was friends with my guy cousin and I always asked about him thats how I found his number. He treats me with respect and has always been my rock. And he does not understand my feelings sometimes..maybe he does but just doesn't wants to please me??
