But it was a massive mistake. It amazes me to the length we will go to put another person or group down. But they are both adults and able to legally consent, so in that regard you need to mind your business.

He is the one who has always initiated acts of sentiment or emotional intimacy during the progression of our relationship. Get an ad-free experience with special benefits, and directly support Reddit. He was using a cane when I met him, actually. It never hurts to take the high road.
The truth is that you may never see persons the same way after you read that book. This is so much more mundane. No, I just don't have the expectations you seem to think I do. Mostly though, I'd say let it run it's course. My boyfriend is pressuring me to have sex?
Oh Lord What I learnt from dating a 40-year-old man
If that were the case then there would not be statutes that state the age of consent is not outweighed by an age difference of greater than x years. Her extra years give her an advantage in several situations.

My favourite is cocaine of the two he introduced me to as I like stimulants. To what are you referring that I supposedly know nothing about? He married his ideal woman.
My attitude on college is that I am financially comfortable and I have the luxury of being able to study something that enjoy. Please refer all such questions to your pediatrician.

- He wore expensive ankle length boots that no man in my village or within my circles could afford.
- Honestly though he's an adult now, and you just have to recognize that the first couple relationships he tries out might be weird.
- What do you see in him to make you want to date him?
And it'd be nice not to be called stupid. Back in the day, people married for life as teenagers. You can't make somebody love you, and you can't make them stay if they don't want to.
It's possible this is an opportunity for your son to learn about the world. Under the right circumstances lots of time, and healthy long-term relationship I would absolutely marry him. Just remind him to be safe when it comes to sex! You will know which one it is if you just allow yourself the experience.
It's very unlikely she'll accidentally get pregnant, get him addicted to drugs, gay or encourage bad habits. Worst case scenario if you get to know her is that you have a good relationship with someone important to your son and you can be there when needed. My husband really hurt me emotionally and now I cant stand even the thought of having sex with him?
My mother does actually know and is weirded out but okay with it because she trusts me. As a mother wife and aunt how should I respond to this? My parents never said anything to me about her, yourself but they were aware of her. Gf embarrassed me in front of her friends?

- How good and how well informed those decisions are is an entirely different matter.
- Start by being open and welcoming and try to get her and her daughter to spend time at your house, so you can see things more closely.
- Knowing that that sort of future wasn't possible, we had a mutual, friendly breakup and remain friends.
- What does your family think?
Don't look at numbers, height, or anything but how you feel. If the person is old enough to be your parent, that is probably what you are looking for. Especially since I have no idea about the details of your relationship. Either they're some how perfect for each other and they stay together, or your son ends up learning a lot about himself and others.
Sweet heart emote, that's even better. If the son is ok with that arrangement, fine. Step back, let him make his mistakes. You just gave us a long and thoughtful list of your concerns about him in this relationship. Undergrad's for fun, though, and I feel like it's making me smarter.

It's tricky and there really is no right answer to how to handle this. The only good advice here, in my opinion! If a couple came to me asking if their age difference would be problematic for a long-term relationship, I might warn them about the difficulties they might face.

Just watch out to see what her intentions seem to be. They are not pleasant people to hang around.
The important thing, is your son happy? And I don't want to loose the sort of friendship we do have. But I dated him because the sex was amazing. Now be a woman and have the balls to own that.
