im dating a guy that is 10 years my senior but my mom doesn't approve because he has a child. I'm 19 years old and he's 29 and I don't see anything wrong with this. He is also a bit thicker in body than I am and so it would appear as if I'm his daughter to some people. What do you think ? Should I stop talking to him because of this?

when I met my husband he was 26, I was 18 and he had a daughter. I tried to prove I was mature but I shouldve been concerned that an older man who had been married and had kids was interested in a girl just out of high school. it shows that he was immature and unable to make good choices for himself and his child. it was rough, leaving me with a lot of resent, I will admit. I look back now and see what a bad decision it was to get involved with him at that time in our lives (of course there were other factors besides our ages). I also dated a man much older than me when I was in high school and peoples jaws dropped when we walked into a room. that guy moved a 16 year old mother into his house shortly after breaking up with me for being too immature, I was 17.
its not the age gap, its the age group. there's a difference between people just out of high school and more mature people who have had families. a mature father should recognize that difference and the hardship it would be to you to get involved with his ready-made family. that's not to say you're immature. you just have a lot of living you could be doing, growing, learning, having fun.5
