At that point in our lives, we'd both gotten out of our first serious, long term relationships in terrible, miserable ways. Now it's been five months, and we've connected over much, much more. I'm one of his. You do not need to worry about cost sharing even after courtship. They will pay the bills, help with doing the laundry and keep valuable stuff safe.
He's my friend, and we give each other the same respect that we give to our other friends.
My Boyfriend Is 10 Years Older Than Me
The key is not to get involved with a person who thinks they own you, or are superior to you, just because they were born earlier. I honestly didn't know what was happening, but I knew I liked him, and I didn't particularly care if we were dating seriously or not. Occasionally, when I mention this, people seem surprised. Probably because my first boyfriend, who I dated for almost five years, was just over thirty years my senior. Please be safe with whoever you choose to sleep with or date, regardless of their age. Fortunately for me, this man's age was just another characteristic about him like his hair or smile or eyes.
