Hello, Apologies if this is a little long winded…here goes I’m 27 in march and in a relationship with a very handsome 23 year old guy…. I know right what’s the problem then… well I’m ready to settle down with someone… I don’t need it tomorrow and I don’t need to be sure he’s ‘the one’ right now. I’m trying to just go with the flow and not worry about the future, but I just don’t want to waste time and potentially break both our hearts if it doesn’t work out… my fear is that he is too young for me… that he will not be attracted to me in the longer term… or will regret having married young. (Hypothetically) When we first met I didn’t think our relationship had much potential, assuming that a 23 year old wouldn’t really want a serious relationship, in the way I do. I was honest with him about this and he wanted me to take him seriously, and says he thinks he wants to marry me… although he has had many relationships before us, he has never had a long term relationship or been in love.. so I think I’m his first love, which compounds the feeling that maybe he is unable to make sound decisions or know if he really means what he says about being serious We’ve been together for 8 months now and I think he’s great but I can’t seem to shake the feeling that its really risky and I will end up heartbroken in the long term… because he’s too young and inexperienced to know if he is really ready to commit like I need at this point in my life? Am I being crazy to worry or just sensible and smart to worry? Thanks for your consideration Lauren :) fretting about love!?!
