I've just had an awesome afternoon with this guy, Craig, who I've had a mega crush on for over 2 years.. He was one of the RPM and Body Pump instructors at my previous 2 gyms (we are both at different gyms now).
Anyway, we've always been friendly at the gym, and there was a point in time this year where I was studying and couldn't make it to any of the classes he took, so he didn't see me for a good 6 months. This is where I lost a big chunk of weight. The next time he saw me in July he couldn't stop saying how good I looked. A few weeks later I quit that gym to join another, and when I told him he said we should catch up for coffee sometime..
Fast forward to this Friday just been, I was coming back from my run when I see someone that looks exactly like him driving along the main road my street comes off, except in a different car to what I knew he had.. I txted him anyway and turns out it was him, and we organised to have coffee today!
Had coffee today, sat there chatting for like 2 hours, wandered around the mall for a while and were going to see a movie but there was nothing good on. So we went down to Semaphore (a popular beach area near us) and went and had an ice cream (low fat vanilla yoghurt blend for me, it was delicious!!!) and wandered around. It was just such an awesome afternoon, we chatted non stop and I was really comfortable with him.
He's going to teach me to surf!! And we're going to catch up soon!
ANYWAY, the point of all that babble is... he's 22 yrs older than me... It doesn't bother ME and he looks and acts SO much younger. Until he told me a year or so ago, I thought he was mid 30's at the most.
I just wanted to find out - what do people think about age gaps as big as that? I know if anything was to happen with us it would just be us two who it matters to and stuff, but I was just curious! Have any of you had relationships with people that much older? How did you find it?
