15 dating 21 year old
She had a son, that a year before we met, had passed away at 13.
She needed a strong presence in her life, she needed a rock, and I learned not just how to do that, but also that I was good at it. She's my world after all, but it would be off message, which is this: Sometimes, what you need in life is not someone in the same place in life as you, as western culture seems to feel is the standard. :)I've gotten quite a bit of disapproval for my decision, accompanied by cries that I'm being taken advantage of. From a developmental POV and As a 25 year old female myself I'm going to admit I don't understand. I'm not telling you that either of you are 'wrong' or bad but you and OP shouldn't be surprised if people don't accept your relationships.
When I was 23 I met a woman 9 years older than me, and she was wonderful.
Honestly though, I didn't think it could possibly last.
My husband and I are the same age but he's way more mature than I am, he's just better and I love him for it.
Congrats, I'm sorry people judge you and your gf!
We both had some time on our hands, and he ended up asking if I wanted to get some coffee to continue our conversation.
I actually feel myself getting a little bit happier.
Tonight we're going to watch the new Sherlock at his apartment and binge-watch some Game of Thrones. Just wanted to share, seeing as I can't really share this with anyone else in all its detail. But I will say, the person I was at 16, and the person I am at 25, are two pretty different people.
Sometimes, what you need is someone in a different place. Don't ever let anyone tell you that whoever makes you happy is not right for you. I've known what I want, like and am comfortable with sexually and personally for a very long time, so being told that my decisions You don't have down votes now, but they could have come from the fact that you said if she was 16 things would be ruined by her immaturity and carelessness... You guys are in very different mental places in your lives. Ultimately it's your choice but age is also more than a number and people do change with age and become almost different people as they get older.
I know that 16 year olds can be mature for their age as well but it's more than maturity.Things have been hard, I've had to deal with some pretty awful family situations including the loss of my father and the all-but-loss of my mother who is no longer present.
