Dating someone older than you datinglove es
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.
How does a ten year age gap affect our relationship?
I think the answer depends on the stages of our relationship.
As Jordan and I got to know each other better I realized how comfortable I was around him, he made me laugh, he never pressured of pushed me physically (in fact our first few dates I didn’t even realize were dates, oops) and I felt as if he understood me on a deeper level.
As someone who always feels misunderstood and misrepresented that last part was huge.
I didn’t know how to pay my bills on time, or clean an oven and my bedspread was from the children’s section of Target.
I was a full time nanny, he was the owner of a construction company.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.We both didn’t want to go up to the mountain that day, we both almost flaked out, we both were sort of seeing other people (casually) and we are ten years apart.For Jordan, the latter was less of a big deal than it was to me.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.Jordan is so focused on his career while I still want to drop everything to travel the world.I don’t feel any sense of urgency when it comes to investments and house hunting and owning furniture not from Ikea.Not long after we took a road trip to California together, said “I love you” for the first time on Valentine’s day and the rest…it’s not so distant history.Looking back there are a lot of reasons Jordan and I shouldn’t have met.
