I met him in college, I was 17 and he was 32. I was going to school for my GED, he was taking some computer technology courses. He was very much afraid of me bcuz of my age, and I completely understood. You can’t be too careful with young girls. He was very gentlemen like and treated me like a lady, that’s what I loved the most. I felt like I was with a mature adult, someone I could look up to, and learn from, to grow with as a person. I don’t believe that he truly warmed up to me until after my 18th birthday. Though he has said he fell in love with me and my little side before I ever turned 18. He was just afraid to express it. My mother didn’t make it easy for him either, neither did his friends and fam who are mostly his age or older. There were so many old jokes and jokes of pedophilia that I began to understand why he feared kissing me in public or even letting me hold his hand. They had really affected his confidence and it hurt me to see such a strong and kindhearted man take these verbal blows. He always said they didn’t bother him but it’s easy to tell when he’s fibbing. So it took time but now he shows me all the love he has as much as he can bcuz in the beginning we were just getting use to each other and it seemed like we couldn’t show our feelings the way we desperately wanted to. I am a very lucky girl and he is a lucky man to have me, he tells me everyday he knows this. That I am his princess and his only purpose in this world is to look after my well being and make me happy. He says that he is here to serve me, and well when I hear him say things like that it only makes me want to serve him more. Our relationship is not perfect by all means, I am not trying to make it sound better than it is either. We have ups and downs like any relationship there is arguing but not as much as there was say a year ago. We do disagree I will not deny that at all, he can frustrate me and upset me as can I. But at the end of the day we love each other and we need each other.
I loved this question, thank you so much for asking.
