Get your head sorted out with these: Guy wants to take it slow, Is my boyfriend getting bored with me?
As a closing note, again, thank you so much for being such loyal and supportive readers.
I am grateful to have such loyal readers who contribute great questions to me.
But I have a confession to make: I don’t answer every question that comes into my inbox.
I mean, sure, there are some things that are different about dating someone who isn’t your age, but for the most part it’s really not that big of a deal. The most common reaction to the age difference is total shock, followed by the question “But how did you meet? Sometimes when you’re with him and all of his friends, you might feel a little out of place. You learn that people are rude enough to ask questions like, “But why would you date someone younger than you?
Any girl who has dated a younger guy knows that other people tend to make this situation more awkward than it should be. ” Oh, I don’t know, I was trolling the local middle school and put a spell on him. ” Because I want to, and because I’m not judgmental. You realize that there’s a big double standard – most people won’t blink an eye about an older guy dating a slightly younger girl, but if it’s the other way around, watch out.
I had an older brother and sister 12 and 15 years my senior respectively, parents who were happy together, and my aunt and cousins lived one street over.
