I’m in my 50s and I’ve been dating a much younger man. We have been sleeping together but we are both dating other (but not sleeping with them). We are in love and he said he would marry me if I wasn’t so much older than he is. It’s not that he wants children, he just feels funny about the age difference.
Queenie, should I wait until he feels better about it? Or what should I do?—Cougar in love
He is in love with you, but not willing to marry a much older woman. If you can live happily with him in your life, but not as your husband, go for it. If you cannot, end it.
