about to have a nervous breakdown
I have been in a very serious and amazing relationship with my boyfriend for 3 years. We met when I was on vacation in Europe and fell instantly in love. Although I am from the USA, we have both been moving back and forth between continents and doing everything possible to be together for 3 years. We are extremely in love and I can think of no one I have ever known who I have been so close with.
The one downside to our relationship: he is 14 years older than me. I am 22 and he is 36. As he always looked younger than his age, I never really cared because our age difference was not that apparent and he is the best person I have ever met. Over the past couple of months, however, he seems to be rapidly aging and suddenly looks 20 years older than me. No one ever even noticed our age difference before but, in the past two months alone, two separate people have asked me if he was my father.
Even though he still treats me incredibly well and his personality makes me incredible happy, I am starting to go crazy.
One side of me loves him more than I know I will ever love anyone while the other side of me is scared to even look at him because I am afraid to see all of his new wrinkles.
One side of side of me knows that he is my soul mate, while the other side is questioning if I am capable of being with someone who suddenly looks 20 years older than me.
I love him SO MUCH but am left so confused and lost from his sudden change in appearance. WHAT SHOULD I DO???
