First of all, I have to say that it was great seeing that not only women-supporting-women joined the SMV live video, but some guys were also responsive, throwing some good comments out there. On this opportunity many questions popped up to the beautiful ladies in the lounge (some juicy ones, right?!). One of the best was... does the age matter?
It sounds simple, but all of us have been on that moment when we don't know if a relationship will work because some sort of age difference. I'm a love lover, so I've been on both extremes of the equation. One of the most important relationships of my life was with a man who was 10 years older than me. It was bit scandalous, because at the time, I was only 19, and this dude was almost 30.
When my parents knew about it, they freaked out and said the guy was a creep. I was convinced that it was going to be a life long thing, and was obsessed about our deep conversations, and goals we had in common. Turns out it didn't go as well. The dude was actually a creep, cheated on me.. the sweet result: Guy got pregnant one of his booty calls. I figured it out, and we broke up.
One I also dated someone who was 4 years younger than me. All my friends were calling ME a creep - lol, we sometimes are the judges, and sometimes we're being judged- but in all honesty, I felt just fine. This baby was very mature, and I felt comfortable with our conversations, and points of view. I had to move to a different city, and things didn't work out.
Fast forward to my husband.. we are the same age, we get along, and I could not imagine my life without him. He is the ying to my yang, and even if we are different, we compliment each other.
All of this to come to the same conclusion the girls came up with this past Sunday. Age doesn't really matter when you find someone who shares your life goals, values, and interests. To me, age is really a number! Same thing with weight... will you allow a number dictate your happiness?
When we find our soulmates, stupid rules imposed by society don't really matter, and finding joy in each other is our priority. If you are older than your other half, well - good times ahead sharing your wisdom and little life tricks. If you are younger than your man... well - It's time to learn and to enjoy being spoiled.
One piece of advice? Live your life intensely. Remember all we have is now, and good memories last forever. Everyone has their own beauty, their own bright soul in disregards of their age. If you find the right one, don't let him/her go, choose love among it all!
