Dating a man 9 years older
Even so, one could argue that these mainstream films reflect the desires of white America, or more to the point, white men, and not Black men, which up to this point is the only group of men I’ve dated.
But with brothers I find, that they, too, have internalized a particular relationship to the body-type most associated with the mammy figure.
He He's not going to run at the first chance he gets. Instead, he sits right down and talks it through with me. He supports me wherever I am in my life, and talks me through whatever challenge I am enduring, making sure I have what I need.
If I want to or have to have a "talk" with my partner, he doesn't dodge or flinch at the prospect of a serious conversation. If I need time to myself, he doesn't have a panic attack or yell at me for not spending all of my time with him.
I wouldn't have given him the time of day, or night for that matter.
I always thought that women who dated older men had to have "daddy issues." Not necessarily. This is the first time in my life that I have ever dated anyone considerably older than me. In fact, for a long time when I began dating my partner, I kept asking myself what I was doing with a man so much older than I am.
I’m all those things in a culture that not only hates fat, and finds it repulsive, but also in a culture where fat dark-skinned women can only find roles in movies as maids.Cece even tells Jess as she's first considering dating Russell (the one and only Fancypants) that "he intimidates you because you wouldn't have to take care of him, he'd take care of you."DON' T make your man feel older than he actually is (or date yourself).Russell confesses he hasn't dated since 1989 and Jess replies, "That was the year I learned to use the toaster by myself." Not so hot.I mean if your just gonna date the girl , just go and find out what she is like and see what gives.If your asking "is the age difference too much for the long term" then the answer is no - age is just a number and like the previous post says luv is luv , bruv ,just go with the flow till the river runs dry eh ?
