    Age Gap
    AlwaysHope4Eva posted:
    I am currently dating a man 20 years my senior. I am 26 and he is 46/ twice divorced with two boys 10 and 11.

    He has always been into younger women, I however have never dated out of my age range. I beginning to get very attached, even though he is fixed and has stated he wouldnt remarry again.

    Sometimes I feel like I am wasting my time but Im beginning to fall in love. I dont wanna lose him but I also wanna be true to my wants and needs. Id love to eventually be someones wife and have at least one more child (I have a 3 year old from a previous relationship)

    I am open to opinions, any and all would help....

    Is age just a number?????

    The number to focus on is two for twice divorced.

    Age is just a number, but none of your life goals match with what he is telling you he wants out of life. You're being unfair to yourself by tying yourself down with someone whose goals are not the same, and unfair to him by holding him to expectations that he is definitely straight-up telling you "I do not want that".
