Im 20 and dating a 30 year old
No woman worth her salt his own age would have put up with half the shit I did and unfortunately he was my first everything so I had a very skewed perception of relationships for a bit after that.I like your advice to pay attention to how they act.Also, from another side, I also dated someone in their early 30s when I was 19, but I would say that their only character flaw was putting up with my bs.He was genuinely nice, treated me well, and was not at all condescending.He never seemed that happy in the relationship, but everyone just assumed they would eventually get married.Now, after a long and difficult breakup, The New Lease On Life Guy has reemerged with a bang and is suddenly acting like he just got called down on The Price Is Right.
Let’s examine some of the common types: The Total Package is smart—he went to a top college.
He’s not really sure how to be single but he’s goddamn happy he is, and he’s sure as hell going out tonight.
He’s also the arch-nemesis of The Resigned Fiance, who’s in an equally unhappy relationship but just kind of kept going with it, unable to resist the sweet, sweet inertia, and who most certainly does not want to hear about The New Lease On Life Guy’s latest exploits.
Yes, the woman fit for The Total Package will be the ultimate icing on his cake of perfection.
He imagines her often—gorgeous as they come, she turns heads; bursting with charm and charisma, she lights up every room she enters; she’s a brilliant rising star in her career and beloved by her many friends.
