Age: I haven’t told him mine

Keeping secrets on November 30, 1998

Dear Breakup Girl,

I’m dating a guy nine years younger than me. The problem is that he doesn’t know how old I am, and I’m scared to tell him. We’ve been dating about seven months now, and I’m beginning to feel guilty because he has started to mention the forever-together word. He has never come straight out and asked me my age, but I do look younger than I am. I really don’t want to tell him because or the past actions past boyfriends have exhibited once I told them my age. I really don’t care that I’m wasting time with somebody who might not accept me for who I am, because I’ve already been married, had long term relationships, and don’t really care about long term or commitment anymore. Do you think I should tell my boyfriend my age?

Dear Julie,

Oooh, are you the girl from Felicity?

Regardless, here’s my concern: this hasn’t come up? In seven months? What do you guys talk about? Never mind that he hasn’t outright asked, but it hasn’t just come up? As in, “Actually, I was an infant, so no, I don’t remember what I was doing when John Glenn landed. The first time.” — ? Nothing? For me, that’s the oddest thing going on here.

So I’m guessing that he somehow already knows and doesn’t care, or doesn’t know and doesn’t care. But there is a talk you guys should have, even if it’s not about how many times you’ve been 29. Because if he’s making together-forever noises, and you’re still withholding basic facts — and/because you’re not concerned with long-term commitment — then there’s a gap here that’s not measured in years. You might [by default] lie about your age, but at least act it.

  1. Please let me know if you’re looking for a author for your blog.
    You have some really great posts and I believe
    I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d love to
    write some articles for your blog in exchange for a
    link back to mine. Please send me an e-mail if interested.

  2. I think the admin of this website is genuinely working hard for his
    web page, since here every material is quality based stuff.

  3. Howdy! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering
    if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one?

    Thanks a lot!

  4. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to
    my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter
    updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything.
    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to
    your new updates.

  6. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appearance.
    I must say you have done a excellent job with this.
    Also, the blog loads super quick for me on Opera. Exceptional Blog!

  8. A fascinating discussion is worth comment. I believe that you ought to write
    more on this issue, it might not be a taboo matter but generally folks don’t talk about
    such topics. To the next! Cheers!!

  9. Good post. I learn something new and challenging on sites I stumbleupon on a
    daily basis. It will always be useful to read through articles from other authors and use something from
    their websites.
