I'm an older woman who has been dating a 21 year old guy for 3 months now. It is an amazing connection. However, I keep holding back because I feel concerned that he is so young and I wonder: what is the point to this?
He has no immediate plans for a serious relationship and while I would like one, I am not out there looking either. My relationships are not usually long-lasting!
He says he doesn't care about the age difference and does not hesitate to have me meet his mother. I have been putting that off.
Should I quit this amazing connection while I am ahead? Lisa
Guys go through 3 stages – knight, prince and king. A knight is usually in his 20s, still finding out who he is, what he likes and what he wants to be when he grows up.
It is of course flattering to have such a young man attracted to you, however the attention span of people in their early 20s is not known for being very long.
You should enjoy this while it lasts while also dating others, but the chances of it turning into a long term relationship are very low.
