Before I start this, here’s some info on me: I’m a very friendly, humble, drama-free person. I rarely party and like to stay out of trouble. I work hard, school is a priority, and basically your typical good girl.
I am in love with a man whose 7 years older than me. I’m 19, he’s 26. We met when I was 18, him 25. We dated for that year, and we only hung out about 8 times beacuse I was in high school, had a busy schedule, and of course had to sneak out to see him. He was understanding and patient with this. Meanwhile throughout this time, we talked a lot on the phone and he really was interested in me as a person, saying that he has never met anyone like me before.
Given that we are both physically attracted to eachother, we have a mental and emotional connection.
When we are together in person, we don’t even feel the age difference. That’s how compatible we are. We share the same values, thoughts, interests, and beliefs.
He makes me so happy, and i want to be official with him so bad, but we can’t until I’m finally in college, which I will be in 2 months.
We never really brought up being exclusive but it’s mutual that we both see eachother in our futures. He has mentioned meeting my parents and his as well in the future. Our age difference is somewhat concerning in regards to what our friends and family will think, but we truely care for one another. He gives me advice with my everyday life and life itself, and he is inspired by my lust and drive to be successful in life.
We did have sex 9 months into knowing eachother. (He took my virginity) but it was mutual we both wanted to and he respected waiting till I was ready.
Overall, I have fallen head over heals for him. I can even see myself marrying him. And I know I’m young and still In that stage of discovering myself but I just know he’s the one. With that being said, I don’t plan on marrying him until I graduate college. However it is so hard being at different stages of life and he’s developing his career as I’m trying to discover mine. If we truly want to be together, it will be difficult. Am I just being naiive falling for this guy like this? Is it possible that we could work out? I have never had a connection with someone like this before. And I don’t mind having a bf in college I’m not the type to date a ton of men, hookup and sleep with them. I need to have some sort of connection.
Sorry for the length but I need to get this off my chest. It’s hard enough that I can’t tell anyone about him or my parents. I know they will like him though, he’s a great guy. I hate not telling them about him and lying. I have a good relationship with my parents but this is something that would ruin it. I would never have seen myself in a million years to be sneaking around with a guy this much older, and was very hesitant at first, but I fell in love with him.
So I am being a hopeless romantic teenager here? Or Does this budding relationship seem possible?
Thanks for your help
