Dating a man 10 years older
Luckily he doesn’t feel compelled to start a family or else our age gap could be a deal breaker.
I have a feeling that as I become more settled in my career, my finances and adulthood the age difference will matter less (once again).
When one of my friend’s gets engaged I’m freaking out (because NONE of my friends has been engaged yet) while half of his friends are married.
I get insecure if his ex girlfriend likes a bunch of his photos on instagram, but he doesn’t understand because some of his friends are dealing with divorces and child support.
Initially when we met I completely ruled out the idea of dating him.
It wasn’t because I wasn’t attracted to him (I was!
At the time, I was telling the truth and I wondered why I had been so judgmental of dating a guy even 5 years older than me before (I often refused).
As time went on and our lives became more intertwined my opinion shifted once again.
He saw past everything superficial and seemingly appreciated my soul.
At first people would ask me if our age difference was bothersome, if it was difficult and/or how it affected our relationship.
I would roll my eyes and scoff that it didn’t make difference other than that Jordan was more established in his life and career.
champagne and therefore spent way more time dancing to Blank Space and dipping cheese in ranch dressing and virtually no time talking to my soon-to-be boyfriend.
Just a week after my 23rd birthday we were invited skiing with our two friends who had just started dating, my friend broke her wrist, and Jordan and I spent a great deal of the day talking to one another.
When we first met it was a minor adjustment, in the initial dating period it didn’t matter at all, and now that we’re settled into a serious and committed relationship the difference is more substantial.
