I met a very, very attractive successful younger man on line who lives in another state. We have passed the last several months talking via phone, email and IM. He has already said he will fly out to visit with me, which I am looking forward to. He is 26 years old. Can this really work?
I tried asking my girl friends and family members but everyone just laughed and said, “No”. I am a hopeless romantic. Am I reading too much into this? Hoping in Florida
There is nothing wrong with being a hopeless romantic, as long as you are also a cautious romantic! When you ask if this can work, I’m assuming you mean as a relationship. That will depend on his level of maturity and what he’s looking for at this point in his life. While some 26 year old men are ready to settle down, most aren’t.
Let him show you who he is. Are the majority of your conversations sexual? How hard will he be pushing to have sex when he comes to visit? If you get the vibe that it’s just about sex, then it is. A guy who is interested in a relationship will not want to offend you by bringing up sex too soon and too much.
As usual, time will tell. So just lean back, relax and watch to see if he’s interested in you, or just in sleeping with you.
