European dating customs
I am currently in a relationship with a partner much younger than I am.
I guess the big question hanging is whether s/he is genuinely in love (as malleable as the term is) or it is just a fling, done out of curiosity.
Our relationship started very early but I interrupted it when I started university.
Just like a number of people who break up with their high-school partner, I thought university was time for a fresh start and didn’t want anyone holding me back in this new experience.
I have on various occasions dated men younger than me, and experienced this problem first-hand.
There’s always those jokes that fall a little flat, those birthday presents that seem so miscalculated you think it must be a joke, suggestions for activities that seem too dumb to be true.

There were no games, but clear words and communication. For me personally, but never say never, I don‘t know if for a long relationship I could go into either of the extremes.

Let’s face it – there is nothing like the sharpness and openness of a young mind or the touch of firm skin next to yours.
