You are in your late twenties, a time in life when you are just beginning to become sure of who you are and what you want.You are creating your life while he is already in the prime of his.While you figure out the math, let me be clear that I’ve met several other women in their early- to mid-20s who also prefer to date from a much older pool for various reasons.And while cliché dictates that, sure, men are into it, there’s been some recent research done about younger females often gravitate toward mature men."He is married, you know."Megan isn't a homewrecker and by the time we made it back to Los Angeles, with the help of Tinder we found her another suitable match, Gary, 68, an accomplished businessman who lives in San Francisco, vacations in Palm Springs, and loves golf.
For example, if you ask a teenager what is old for him, they will tell you 35.
In my opinion, there is a lot more than just 15 years that separates you from your 42-year-old boyfriend.
He's had a heck of a lot more life experience than you have.
If I follow what feels right, am I setting myself up for future failure? Usually, we don't question the things we know in our gut to in our best interests.
You are concerned that a 15 year age difference may be a "terrible idea" or "setting yourself up for future failure." Are these irrational concerns, or is this your intuition trying to out-talk your infatuation?
