I’m 36 and my boyfriend is 28. We had been dating for 9 months when, because of his immaturity (putting his friends before me) we broke up. Shortly afterward I went on an overseas trip for a month with no cell phone. Upon my return I found out he had been trying to reach me.
When we finally met up, he told me that during the time we had been apart, he realized how no woman would have wanted to deal with his “friends first” attitude. He really thought we had something special and that we should try again. I told him: I’m 36, I’m over these stupid games, I want a family and a strong stable relationship, if you don’t want that, let’s not try again. He assured me that’s what he wanted too.
Things are going great and we are now talking about living together but I’m scared that this will not work out and his age will someday come to bite me in the butt. Last month on the day he gave his landlord notice, I freaked out and created a big fight. He took it back and said since I wasn’t ready we could wait until I am. Do you think he’s too young to make a serious commitment at 28? Sarah
