Dating in your forties
Dating in your forties - dating jordan pruitt
I know he's not old enough to really be my father, but he's up there.It's really a case of two kindred spirits being separated by a lot of numerical years. - Old Soul, 27 Dear Old Soul, Just the fact that you are presenting this question makes me wonder if you already know the answer.
To explore this topic, I pulled aside two individuals who I knew were hunting for a long-term relationship using online dating websites, and asked them about their experiences with the services.
Furthermore, other than the very obvious reasons, why is a 42-year-old dating a 27-year-old?
Has he ever been married or in a serious committed relationship? Do you want to spread your wings and live the carefree singles life for a while, or are you looking to settle down into the lifestyle that he has spent the past two decades creating?
What I realized is that I was trying to skip over my own twenty-something experience by coat-tailing his life.
Sure, we had the same kind of connection you speak about and I really did feel like we were kindred sprits in a lot of ways; however, the unavoidable truth was that we were at very different points of our lives.
I'm not saying it couldn't work; I'm just asking you to think beyond the immediate comfort and initial honeymoon phase, evaluate your doubts and the source of those doubts, and ask yourself if this is what you really want.
After thinking it through, if you believe he is still your soul match, then don't let the age gap get in your way.
Age is just a number, but love, connection, values, compatibility and chemistry are real.
And by the way, they are real hard to find in one person, so thank your lucky stars that you have found your soul mate.
Dating an older man can be an ego boost since being wanted by someone older makes you feel more mature.
I share this with you because I encourage you to ask yourself if some of his appeal lies in the simple fact that he is older.
If you were 40 and he was 55, I would not be as concerned about the age difference as both of you would have had ample time to experience life and mold your identity.
