Real quick. What are your thoughts on dating younger? I’m knocking on 29, and I’ve just not been able to make it work with guys my age. I tried dating older, and that didn’t work out for me. The older men I’ve dated always came into the situation like they were the authoritarian and I needed to be schooled in everything. Anyway, I met this guy at a bar about two weeks ago, and we’ve been texting since then. Only problem is that he just turned 21 a month ago. From what I know he seems cool, but that age difference makes me nervous. What do you think I should do?
-Young but Not that Young
I haven’t really talked a lot about my experiences coming out, so I thought I’d start sharing. When I finally came to accept myself for who I truly am after years of denial, depression, and self-hate, I decided that I would slowly start to tell some of those closest to me of my truth. I figured if I’m going to live my adult life the way I want to, I can’t do that by being unauthentic to those I call besties and family. One of the first ones up on my coming out tour was my college bff.
