Dating 10 year old man
My age has been a huge barrier for some to open their minds and hearts and get to know me simply as the person whom he loves.
My boyfriend and I are not immune to the effects of these judgments.
Jackie, I am approaching 50, and just over one year separated from my husband. Pilossoph holds a Masters degree in journalism from Boston University.
We've had to ask if it's worth listening to other people’s opinions to potentially give up the best relationship we have both ever had.
(Correct: there isn’t one.)So, after grappling with my own insecurities and the societal taboos, there were also the judgments of friends and family.
At the beginning of our relationship, my friends were concerned that his age automatically revealed his readiness to have a long-term relationship and plan a future together.
There are days when the weight of it all leaves me immobilized, sad, and unable to focus on anything.
So, how do I cope when the judgments become overwhelming?
People in our lives also expressed the fear that if we were to stay together, we may never have a “normal” life.
