Lauren, a 60-year old woman, is dating a 46-year old man. “I feel safe in loving him but I worry about what will happen in the future, how will I look and how my insecurity will drive him away. Help!” she writes.
It is great that you have found love and it is better to give your best to the relationship without worrying too much about the future. Men often leave younger women even if they look drop-dead gorgeous – can you imagine that Brad Pitt left Jennifer Aniston got a divorce and Kenny Chesney and Renee Zellweger divorced. That is not a good enough reason to get worried – divorce is very much a part of our lives and there is no escape from it.
Plus, this man knows what he is getting into. If that were an issue, he would not be with you right now – he would be with a younger chick. I think he has given enough thought to your age and how you will look as you get older.
