Woman dating man 5 years younger
And despite the age difference and the fact that we disagreed on everything from movies to ideal vacation spots, I felt the same way.There was something between us that transcended logic.
In Cairo, I resurrected the bold, adventurous woman I’d been two decades earlier, before I’d yielded to the pressures and should-dos of grown-up life.
But over the 10 months we’ve been together, his assurances have quieted my neuroses.
The occasions when we are gazing into each other’s eyes and I wonder if he sees an old lady have grown far fewer.
Then I remind myself that if it were he who was 20 years older, neither I nor anyone else would think twice, and I realize that I’m falling prey to the same sexism I bemoan.
While I worry that he’d prefer a woman whose body hasn’t been quite so affected by gravity, he tells me many times a day how beautiful I am — even when I know I am not at my prettiest.
