This debate has been going on in my head for about 2 weeks now.
Five years ago, when I was 15, dating someone ten years older than me would have been out of the question. What 25-year-old perv would want to date a 15-year-old girl?
Today, ten years doesn't seem like such a big difference. He wants somebody fun, entertaining, trustworthy, and without baggage. I want somebody who wants more than a physical relationship, has a job, is funny, trustworthy, and responsible (which rules out 95% of guys between the ages of 20-23). So if our wants match up and we have fun together, what's the big deal?
I mean for real guys, he had flowers delivered to me at work just because he was thinking about me; he took me to Charleston's then a Thunder game; he took me for a ride on his motorcycle (something I've never done) and it started raining on us; and I adore his mother.
Let me be honest, my last boyfriend took me to Taco Bell and McDonald's for dates; he took me to the theatre to watch Mark and Mindi Make a Porno (or whatever the stinking name was)...which was highly offensive to me; he spent all of his time bragging about himself; and he broke up with me over a text saying, "I like the idea of you, just not you." lol.
Upgrade? I think yes.
That's like giving me the option of a kiddi-cone from McDonald's or a banana split from Braum's. Umm...no comparison! lol
