After being in a LTR with my ex for almost 7 years, he cheated on me and left me. I've been single 7 months now, and I began talking to this amazing guy. We hit it off right away and really began falling for eachother. We each have one 5 yr old child each, and are seeking the same kind of relationship. The child's mother left the picture and he basically raises his child on his own, with help from his parents as he works full-time. He's got his career, his own 3 bedroom home. He's responsible, caring, and wants to get married and have another child within the next 5 years. I want the same thing.
We're both mature, and taking this slowly. I'm worried to tell my family about him because of his age. He's also white, and I've never dated a white guy, and they also still love my ex (father of my child) who is 24. I didn't want to date guys my age because they don't have their lives together, and I think I may have found "the one" as time goes on and feelings get stronger. How should I tell them, and is it even a big age difference?
*btw I'm latina

Age difference doesn matter when one of the people is too young. You're 24, it's not your case. 6 years isn't a huge difference actually in your case (I've seen bigger age differences actually). About him being white, I don't think it matters too. We're all humans, aren't we? It's your life and not your family's life. If you feel you'll be happy with him, ignore those differences and go ahead!0
