So I am 23 years old and last July I happened to meet the most wonderful man in the world! The only problem is that he is 20 years older than me. Actually its not a problem for me, when I'm with him I forget completely that he is older. He is sexy, fun, and makes me laugh. I guess the problem is with my family, I wish I felt comfortable telling them about him.  Also he has 2 kids, one of whom Im only 6 years older than.  He wants to move in with me and the idea of it excites me so much but the reality of our situation is a little disparaging. Now I dont want anyone to think Im money grubbing because Im actually self sufficient; I recently graduated with an engineering degree and am currently gainfully employed in that area. I just want to grow old with him in my life. I know I know...who cares what my family thinks? That is a valid point I am on my own and I don't need anything from them but it is so nice to keep the peace in the family. I really am not looking for advice I just wanted to vent to somebody...even if it really is nobody. I wanted to declare to complete strangers that I am in love and no matter how complicated it may be, I would never change it!
