Older guys: I have always liked older guys! If you listened to my interview then you heard me say this; at the time I really didn’t know why, but as time went on I finally figured it out.
1. Father figure: my dad was still in the house but he wasn’t there mentally and emotionally; he had a whole different life that he was living that didn’t include my mom, my siblings or myself. This is why I was so attracted to older men; trying to fulfill that daddy role!
2. Stability: you don’t want to be left alone! You think older guys have it all together; they have lived their life and you hope that they are ready to settle down; but you end up “chasing a dream” and one day you wake up and realize you did it all for nothing!
3. Security: you want to feel safe. In my case I was raped at a young age so safety was high on my list and older guys seemed to be able to fit the bill until they didn’t! Some older guys are just as screwed up as the younger guys you can’t continue to live in a fantasy world and expect real life to just happen one day! I had to figure out the woman that God needed and created me to be; before I could ever realize and know what my future husband can be like!
Have you learned from your past?
If so; what?
That I’m not the weak and naive person; I used to be!
That I can handle anything that comes my way; simply because I am blessed and highly favored, lol with everyone saying this so much; you get tired of hearing it, but it’s true!
Old post that never got posted! 🙂
