I was sick of guys who saw me as a blonde barbie kind of girl, and Jordan was just the opposite.
He saw past everything superficial and seemingly appreciated my soul.
When one of my friend’s gets engaged I’m freaking out (because NONE of my friends has been engaged yet) while half of his friends are married.
I get insecure if his ex girlfriend likes a bunch of his photos on instagram, but he doesn’t understand because some of his friends are dealing with divorces and child support.
Luckily he doesn’t feel compelled to start a family or else our age gap could be a deal breaker.
I have a feeling that as I become more settled in my career, my finances and adulthood the age difference will matter less (once again).
At the time, I was telling the truth and I wondered why I had been so judgmental of dating a guy even 5 years older than me before (I often refused).
As time went on and our lives became more intertwined my opinion shifted once again.
At first people would ask me if our age difference was bothersome, if it was difficult and/or how it affected our relationship.
I would roll my eyes and scoff that it didn’t make difference other than that Jordan was more established in his life and career.
Initially when we met I completely ruled out the idea of dating him.
It wasn’t because I wasn’t attracted to him (I was!
Our problems are relative and the reality is, a lot of the day to day struggles you encounter in your early twenties may be different in your early thirties.
