But could this finding also reflect shifting sands in the social landscape? Truth is that I was freaking out a bit about the age difference too, but when we are together, we don't even notice the age difference. We have been dating for almost 2 years.

I go along with him for so many things he wants to do or needs to do for his work or whatever. Like fish in a fish tank being picked to death. I met him through a family member of mine. I met him just before the summer so before he started his job in the middle of September and he travels a lot for work too.

And I would never let someone stand in the way of the man I love. I cldnt talk back at him, or shout at him when he made me angry. To each his own though I suppose.
