Women dating younger men problems
I used to think of it as this be-all, end-all—you either had the happily-ever-after or it would never work out.
But being in an in-between state with Mike—I very much love him, yet understand that neither of us knows our ending—has made it increasingly clear that love isn't that simple.
I made sure to regularly ask about whom he was dating, because I didn't want him to think I was interested.

That's actually one of our biggest fights—and where the age-difference thing comes out in full force.I got married in my early 20s and divorced a few years later.My experience, plus being friends with so many divorced women, has made me skeptical about love.
