Younger = not good enough?

Posted on Wed, Oct 24, 2012 at 11:23 AM

You're a 29-year-old woman and I'm a 22-year-old man. Originally, we were just sleeping together and nothing more. But then I realized I was starting to develop deeper feelings for you than lust. I wanted something to materialize between us. When I expressed this to you, I learned you wanted someone to seriously date as well but you turned me down flat and told me I wasn't right for you! The main reason? I'm too young. I'm devastated by this because I actually think we'd make a great couple. Ever heard of the expression, age is just a number? Is it because I don't have a career yet? Is it because I'm a poor student? What! I don't get it. I'm very mature for 22 and I felt we clicked. So I pretty much feel like I was just used by you. I'm good enough for a fuck but not a boyfriend. This sucks because I really liked you. —Early 20s Male in Love
