Dating someone 15 years younger than you
We talk in terms of a permanent "we"—weshould buy a house, we want to live by the ocean at some point in our lives.
That said, while I know our love is real, because of the age difference and kids question, we're both skittish about talking about the future in definite terms. But I am also okay with not knowing—I know it's enough for today that he and I love each other. Although it's cliché, he loves like he can't get hurt, and seeing that has taught me a lesson I needed to learn.
But in general, people don't dwell on our age difference.
Two years later, Mike and I are definitely a couple—we live together and we're deeply in love.
Bottom line: Mike and I are a great fit, because, it turns out, love comes in surprising packages and doesn't follow some one-size-fits-all path.Mike's eyes widened—and then he started revealing some deep stuff about himself, too.
