Group Therapy: Dating an Older Guy
I just recently got out of a six-month relationship. What was supposed to be a minor break, so that he could manage his time better, turned into a messy breakup that left me totally turned off from the relationship. Thus, I found myself ready to date again much sooner than I would have thought. Almost instantly I was asked out by a guy who goes to my college. He already has his bachelor's degree, but is now getting a degree in nursing. I'm currently working on my masters. But we haven't actually met yet (he found me through our school's network on Facebook, and then on MySpace). We have our first date set for this weekend.
I'm excited about dating again, however, I feel a bit wary about the fact that he's 29 and I'm 24. The five-year age difference isn't so drastic, but all the guys I have dated have always been just a few months older than me, so I don't really know what to expect. I consider myself to be a high-achiever, someone who is serious about her career, but I also have a very silly, girly side. He seems to be very introverted and a high-achiever as well.
Does anyone have any insight on the best way to play my date this weekend?
