I'm 37 years old and recently divorced.
A few months back I met a man at a function and we hit it off and chatted most of the event. He seemed sweet and funny and courteous. Then I found out he's 23. I pegged him for a young looking mid thirties based on his maturity.
This weekend he was at a wedding I attended. Neither of us like the dance floor, party scene so we sat and talked. Then things went further. We didn't intend on it, it just happened (ya, I know, you've heard it all before, lol). He has asked if I'd like to go out again. I like him but I was in Highschool while he was in diapers! He has a career and has done more in life than most his age (hence the reason I thought he was closer to my age than he is).
I want to say yes (really, really want to say yes) but I'm terrified of telling people who I'm going out with. To complicate matters this was a family wedding and he's a cousin of the groom (I'm related to the bride). Is going out with someone this much younger than me robbing the cradle?
Edited to add: he knows how old I am and he knows my oldest child is only 10 years younger than him.
