I think it is fairly safe to say that when you initially meet someone you’re really attracted to, it is an infatuation that you feel. Sexual pheromones are very strong and can pull you in with a powerful force. This is what gets many couples jumping into a situation that can be very exciting but also confusing.
Sometimes we make ourselves busy, so we have an excuse not to date. We actually sabotage our own happiness without even realizing it.
We don’t know how long we have in this world, and I believe you should live your life large every day. There is no guarantee that your relationship will last even if you are close in age, and finding a special person to love is always a good thing regardless of how much time you have together.
If you don’t have some boundaries, a few of your own expectations, and respect for yourself, you may end up being in an unhealthy and lopsided situation. This doesn’t work long term and will end up being the demise of your relationship if you let continue.
