It didn't work for us. I don't know. I'll just make a quotation from Ally McBeal to summarize our first date;

"The truth is conversation struggled for a while. We both loved movies, but different ones. We both liked sports, but different ones. We both were afraid of Geoge Bush, but different ones."

It was not just the age gap, i think he still thinks too much about the past. There's no future or blank page for him, though he informed me about some of his future plans, there are still some things he couldn't get over.

You know in the first dates, people mostly talk about whatever they like. He mostly told me the things he didn't like. He talked too much about his exes.

And also, though i thought i knew him well, because we have many common friends, it turned out that he had two kids. It was still ok for me until he said he hadn't seen them for years. I've actually seen my father in him.
aw well darling, you'll find MUCH MUCH better, don't worry.  :)

Sylviee, grazie molte  :) i'm not worried whether i will or not. I gave up thinking about it, i guess it's a matter of right time right place and right person.

And i'm glad because he had been honest with me, at least.

(the way they've been treating me since the talk is far better. and it's going really well. i could never imagine it. i guess, me raising my voice and emphasizing how sick and tired i was of their rude behavious, took them by surprise. it's as if they're new people at the office haha)

ya never know...years ago, my HS trig teacher married a girl a year younger than me.

She'd apparently taken his class in her junior year. then, after she graduated a year later, she waited until the regular school year (our seniors finish their year a couple of weeks before the underclassmen) ended. she showed up in the teachers' parking lot on the last day of classes and waited for him to come out to his car. she asked him out, a year or two later they were married and, last I heard (4 or 5 years ago) they were still together.

 :love3:

I wouldn't lay good odds on these two, however.

I think there's a quite a lot more there than the age difference that's complicating things!

In my sister's school, though, there was apparently a young single teacher who met a girl whilst teaching her. They didn't do anything out of bounds of the regular teacher-student relationship, though they were friendly. After she graduated, they kept in touch, got to know each other better, and ended up together. I don't know if they stayed together for a long time -my sister hasn't been in her school for 10 years so a lot might've changed... But that I think is still "acceptable" whilst the above seems dubious because of the lies and the guy leaving his family.

i'm actually limerent for someone in her early 20's (i'm 15)
(it's unrequited. plus age so i won't ever tell her... yay)

in general, if the relationship's between consenting adults, i don't give a fuck about their age difference(s)

the older you both get the less of a difference age makes.
