champagne and therefore spent way more time dancing to Blank Space and dipping cheese in ranch dressing and virtually no time talking to my soon-to-be boyfriend.
Just a week after my 23rd birthday we were invited skiing with our two friends who had just started dating, my friend broke her wrist, and Jordan and I spent a great deal of the day talking to one another.
How does a ten year age gap affect our relationship?
I think the answer depends on the stages of our relationship.
I was sick of guys who saw me as a blonde barbie kind of girl, and Jordan was just the opposite.
He saw past everything superficial and seemingly appreciated my soul.
Jordan is so focused on his career while I still want to drop everything to travel the world.
I get insecure if his ex girlfriend likes a bunch of his photos on instagram, but he doesn’t understand because some of his friends are dealing with divorces and child support.Our problems are relative and the reality is, a lot of the day to day struggles you encounter in your early twenties may be different in your early thirties.It can be difficult for your significant other to fully understand your perspective if they have been removed from the same struggles for years.It isn’t necessarily wrong that the two of you don’t share the same issues, but it takes recognition and understanding to provide the proper level of support.You don’t have the right to belittle your partner’s problems and he/she should give you the same respect.
