Dating a girl 17 years younger
Culturally, the older woman/younger man dynamic is perceived as an oddity, or a fluke.
Fortunately, that’s changing as more older-woman and younger-man couplings make headlines.
To be honest, he is such an amazing guy (opposite of the loser musicians and wannabe actor types that I usually end up with) that I often wondered why he was dating me in the first place. Why would he bother texting afterward or bother suggesting that we have another conversation about things in a week? Why wouldn’t he just walk away after doing the dumping? It’s a horrible, horrible feeling, right up there with, well, being dumped.
And this feeling, if you can imagine it, provides the full explanation for why people act inconsistent. I’m just going to channel him right now and see what I can come up with:“Well, I really like hanging out with JD, but I get the sense that she’s starting to get attached to me. On the other hand, it’s not like I ever promised to marry her or anything. So maybe after I dump her, we’ll just stay in touch.
The age gaps spanned anywhere from 10 to 14 years, with women in their late 40s and early 50s enjoying relationships and/or marriage with men in their late 20s or 30s. Couples in this situation had to address the fertility concern head-on, with some choosing to take the leap relatively quickly while others took a pass.

Perhaps the guy you dated is thinking he has nothing to lose, and he never stated to you that he was commiting to a relationship with you. By all means, you do not have to take my advice, but just remember by answering his texts and keeping in touch, you are prolonging the inevitable. If you are done with him, than send him on his way.
