It is immensely rare to find a person who knows what and who they want, let alone who they are themselves.I'm sure there is love mutually, but that doesn't mean the feelings will stay or fade. Don't look at numbers, height, or anything but how you feel.
We are very happy and natural together when I let it flow. Years back, I dated a woman that was 12 years older than me.
We talk about a serious future together as we have very compatible life goals, but I worry him being with me is stopping him from experiencing other people and happiness in his life. It was a serious relationship which lasted just over 5 years.
You can't make somebody love you, and you can't make them stay if they don't want to.
I'll tell you 100% if you are not clingy, desperate and can be independent and happy without him, it will attract him more as opposed to you depending on him.
We got along great and the age difference wasn't an issue for either of us. I feel ready for a lifelong, committed relationship. We are both quite spiritual in a very non religious way and work together in that way quite beautifully.
