I am a female, 19. I am more mature than my age, and sometimes I feel I am
trapped with an old soul in a young body. I fell in love with a man, 38. We were
in a long-distance relationship for six months, but two months ago we decided I
would move to New York to be with him and build my life there.
We had a bad time. I couldn't find myself, and he was occupied with his
business. I was very unhappy and we argued constantly. Now I am back in Israel,
and he is there. He decided it would be easier for me to build my life here, and
it would be good for us to take a break. He is afraid I might regret marrying
him because I haven't experienced life yet.
Is this kind of relationship possible, or am I holding on to something which
is doomed from the start?
Leah, why do you need to mention age difference or other factors? When
you were with him in New York, you were unhappy and argued constantly. Why can't
that be the truth of the matter? You gave it a try, it didn't work, he pulled
Every man is not your future husband. Most men you will date until you see
the relationship isn't going anywhere. That's what dating is all about--not
snaring a man, but separating the wheat from the chaff. He's chaff. You're
looking for wheat. Keep sifting.
