I'm in a relationship with an older guy (like nine years older than me).
I care about him a lot and I know that we feel the same way about each other. But I admire your curiosity and brave, exploratory, can-do spirit.
The protocols and practices of dating, and the terms used to describe it, vary considerably from country to country and over time.
That’s right, we now have dating apps; websites were apparently too time-consuming. Simply download Tinder, sign in through Facebook, pick a flattering picture of yourself, and you’ll be matched with photo after photo of potential mates, bombarding you quicker than a stream of Grammy night tweets.
You took a gamble — and that's great, but it sounds to me like it just didn't work out.
Sometimes, you just never know what a person's like until they really relax and reveal their true selves.
The thing is that our whole relationship started off as a one-night-stand type of thing about two years ago. It's courageous Americans like you who make this country great.
Do you think there's hope for us really sticking together? Plenty of one-night stands turn into solid relationships, so don't be ashamed: You were attracted to each other, you went for it — and then you actually ended up caring for each other. A one-night stand is only something to worry about when you're doing that walk of shame because you made a mistake. After all, isn't a long-term relationship basically what happens when you keep wanting to have that one-night stand over and over again? My boyfriend used to have phone sex with his ex all the time, but I am terrible at it and don't even know where to start. So I've talked to a few friends and I have a suggestion for you: Why not warm up with some sexting? We used to spend every single day together, and the days we were apart would be horrible, so he asked me to move in, and I did.
