We are very happy and natural together when I let it flow. Years back, I dated a woman that was 12 years older than me.
We talk about a serious future together as we have very compatible life goals, but I worry him being with me is stopping him from experiencing other people and happiness in his life. It was a serious relationship which lasted just over 5 years.
I would be afraid of taking her away from her youth. If he's ready and understands how you feel and you openly express that, I don't see why it would be a problem.
Mostly because his mother doesn't approve and he still lives with her.
Not only that at one point his mother and I were friends. He has much more to experience but i think it's worth it for now.
It is immensely rare to find a person who knows what and who they want, let alone who they are themselves.
I'm sure there is love mutually, but that doesn't mean the feelings will stay or fade. Don't look at numbers, height, or anything but how you feel.
I find his age of 19 to be more of a concern than the age difference.
If he were 30 and you 49, then he would be an adult with likely enough life experiences, personally and professionally, to know what he wants in a life partner. I would enjoy the moment with him as he is with you.
You can't make somebody love you, and you can't make them stay if they don't want to.
I'll tell you 100% if you are not clingy, desperate and can be independent and happy without him, it will attract him more as opposed to you depending on him.
It's so hard tho because we have an amazing connection. People also think we're the same age, I look younger then my age and he looks a bit older then his.
it's hard when love knocks it indescribable and I'm in the same boat..
I am a 38 year old female who is dating a 19 year old guy.
