does age matter when it comes to love?

Published on June 5, 2010 by stupidinlove

We dated for 3 months and he still introduced me as his 'friend' to his friends. He tells me he won't make a good boyfriend and that he is not good for me, right now... but when I try to end things, he won't let go. I think he wants me to wait for him to come around. But I'm so heart broken because I have confessed that I love him but he just won't reciprocate. He also mentioned that he is too old for me and we are only 9 years a part. Could age be the obstacle in this dysfunctional relationship??? I need help!!!


I think he's left you no choice but to break things off. He's telling you he won't make a good boyfriend, he doesn't acknowledge you as his girlfriend to his friends, is bothered by your age difference (in my opinion it isn't that much) and won't recripricate your love. I don't see why you would want to stay. He's got one excuse after another. You don't have to put up with this kind of behavior.

Stand your ground with this man. He doesn't know what he wants and you deserve someone who can be mature and commit to you.

Most men like younger women, this has nothing to do with it. I've been in similar situations, the problem is one of commitment. He enjoys the attention and sex you give him, he just doesn't want to give you anything in return.

You either stick around and be his f*ck buddy or you tell him if you're not his girlfriend no more sex and you're done.

The only reason he doesn't want to let you go is for sex and you feed his ego. Think about it, who doesn't want someone falling all over them with no reciprocation.

Dear StupidInLove,

Perhaps he doesn't let you go because he doesn't want you to go. Three months is not a very long time. If you are in love with this man...I feel that you should hold on a llittle longer (as long as he is not disrespecting you or treating you badly). Think about this... you love someone because you love them.. Not because they love you. Also.. a 9 year age difference can be a bit of an issue if you are not yet in your 30s....Women mature a great deal during their 30s. Good Luck!
