    Dating someone for a few mos who I really like... a great deal. Although, we are really kind of polar opposites in our lifestyles, and some of our philosophies (it seems). She's 5 years younger; usually 1-2yr younger (6-8 years older) is my range.

    It's been quite some time since seriously dating someone and at that someone who makes me see the world in a kind of new light and it’s been amazing to, in this new connection, learn about what it means to begin care for, or about someone again (too soon?)

    Our lifestyles are REALLY very different though. Could opposite sides of the coin last? While there's been a little bit more stressers than I'd like to experience because it seems so soon -- when I'm with her all the stuff that seems to come up, falls away. Not even sure what my gut is telling me to do at this point, but I’ll try to hang in there a bit longer despite the early arguments/frustrations. Or should I bail?

    My older brother by 4 years (44) is getting married this year, I’ll be his best man & am so happy for him. Starting to feel like my time’s running out. Finances, and career wise things are good, just over wiping out my debt and on trajectory to buying a home this July. Almost got a pet (adopt papers all together)...

    Keeping my fingers crossed .
