I have often heard that age is just a number in relationship, and it is true but certainly not for everybody out there.
I hold strongly that what really matters for lovers are understanding, love and respect. I also pay close attention to the working of the mind and the character of my partner.
Age and ageing start from the mind. You can be 40 but your mind works like 30. Your mind controls your entire body system. If you’re old in your mind, it will reflect in your body and your character.
So, it is not really about age but for this man, once a lady is older than the man, then relationship can’t work.
From his story, he doesn’t want to continue his relationship with his older lover on the ground that his friends will disapprove of their relationship. He also feels deceived to by his girlfriend who never mentioned her age to him all along their relationship.
Read his story below:
“Am a 30 years old guy…I met this lady when I was 28…She actually look like my age mate…We agreed to date until I recently realised that she is 3 years older than me…..I want to get married but her age scares me…..
I feel she would grow older than I do in the nearest future and that would cause a lot of dishonesty in the coming years. We have come too far to think of dumping her looking of her submissiveness and genuine love for me and the things of God.
I’m unable to love her like I used to in the past after realizing that. I get more worried because I feel people will talk about it when get married….three of my friends have raised issues on that in the past…
I’m very confused now and I am thinking of the worst (breakup) which I find so difficult looking at how nice she has been and her personality… Please I need advice”
