Life - Relationships ...Oh my...

What do you do when your new boyfriend

  • is 7 years younger than you
  • tells you he wanted to go out with you 10 years earlier but you would not give him the time of day
  • almost says he bought his new vehicle to fit the new situation
  • likes to give smooches in public
  • has an aunt that went out with your younger brother
  • enjoys spending time with you and your child
  • has only been divorced for almost 5 months
  • has an ex-wife who wants to call and complain because her mother is mad at her over the divorce – she the one who got pregnant with someone other than him
  • is self sufficient with virtually no debt
  • will probably do just about anything for you
  • is the proverbial nice guy

When you

  • feel really weird about being 7 years older
  • remember that 10 years ago but remember liking one of the other younger guys
  • don’t want the car you have
  • feel funny but PDA
  • didn’t even know that your brother was seeing anyone at the time
  • have a child that adores him
  • have been on your own for 4 years
  • has an ex-husband that will be in the picture forever
  • still has a huge student loan and recovering credit
  • feel you are too selfish currently state to deserve such attention but can’t seem to shake it at times
  • are trying to enjoy the nice guy and not second guess it


I guess you try to get over the little stuff and enjoy the good stuff. It’ll be 6 months at the end of this month – things are going well.


I enjoy it when he is around but I also enjoy my own time and my own space. There are still things that I like to do or don’t do but don’t feel comfortable doing when he is around – stupid stuff but my stuff all the same.

Great to hear that life is going well. By the way, I think your HTML needs a tweak.

i think you already figured it out: try to enjoy it and not second-guess it. :-)

They call them emotional scars because they stay there forever. The good news is that they are scars, and not open wounds. It is up to you to decide what heals.
