"My boyfriend is 29 years older than me"
I once thought I'd fallen in love with an adorable lawyer who started chatting with me while we waited at a crosswalk in Manhattan. I felt an immediate spark, and after we exchanged numbers, we planned our first date without ever bringing up our ages. Then he excused himself to the go to the bathroom while I sat wondering what our relationship age gap meant: Would he want to move faster in a relationship? Would he be thinking about children already? Would he be appalled by my tiny studio apartment, which I could barely afford?
By Dr. Seth Meyers. Dating Dos and Don'ts. The reality? So not true! The most important rule to follow is a general one: Make sure the two of you have the same goals for the relationship and for your daily life together.
Is he rich then? And despite the age gap, we eventually plan to get married. Regardless of his age, we have so many common interests which make our conversations deep and interesting. His presence in my life has been a genuinely calming influence on me. Of course, our unconventional relationship does have its downsides. Sometimes, instead of feeling stoked to be his arm candy, the horrified stares we get as we walk down the street holding hands make me want to cry.
