Women dating man 20 years younger non english russian dating sites
At the beginning of our relationship, my friends were concerned that his age automatically revealed his readiness to have a long-term relationship and plan a future together.
People in our lives also expressed the fear that if we were to stay together, we may never have a “normal” life.
I now realize that it is not my role to win over family, friends, or anyone else who may wish to make a statement about our relationship.
Moreover, I often want to hide away — to avoid family functions, social outings, and not have to face people eye to eye.
But I know that hiding, crying and shouting does no good; I must show up as myself, courageously and yet graciously, and be the best person I can be.
No one can predict what lies ahead, and no one knows if they will be with someone forever, however long “forever” may be.2.
I believe that this is someone else’s issue and not my own.
Ultimately, my boyfriend and I have concluded that our love is too deep, intense, and “once-in-a-lifetime” to let it go.
