Age…does it really matter??

Heeeey guys! I’m glad to be back on track! I’ve had some tornado of events recently. Everything was so rapid and I couldn’t keep up with blogging at the same time. How’s it going? If you were to ask me the same thing, I’d say “Fantastic!”
Remember the new guy who has made my whole world upside down? (If not, kindly click on this ) Yeah? We finally met each other! ^_^
December 23, 2014..he touched down my hometown that night. You know that feeling, right? Butterflies were not just in my tummy but all around the corners that my eyes could see. But then again, I tried to compose myself. Such was a precious memory not to be forgotten.
He stayed here for 10 days and we tried to make the most out of the bound time we had. I had the best time of my life with him. We got along just fine. ^_^
Here’s the thing..
I’m 24 and he’s 36 (37 in Korea). So that’s a 12 year difference. Is my Math okay? LOL In all fairness, he doesn’t look like his age, I mean he seems younger than his age. My family can attest to that. 😀 From the start, I knew I was going to be in a special relationship like I had before. However, I wasn’t expecting that it could be more special than I apprehended. LDR again? YES! He currently resides in Saitama, Japan or should I say he’s been living there for almost 10 years. He left South Korea for work. And~ I’m here in Cebu. I don’t seem to worry about it. Hello? Been there, done that. 😀 What strucks me the most is how people give us dirty looks when they happen to know our age difference. “Does he look like a dirty old man or something?” That’s how I respond to their evil eyes, but only at the back of my mind. I’m not a catfight freak. 😀 I truly am happy with him. He knows how to make me smile. He has my heart now. I am not treated like a secret that has to be kept. We have tons of differences to be discerned and gradually be embraced. Why should I bother entertaining those unfavorable looks and pessimistic mentality? For all I know is that I never slept with him just to start the relationship. I didn’t entice him. I wasn’t even planning on falling in love with him. We started out as language exchange partners, not as online lovers. Indeed, you can’t choose whom you fall for. Love comes when you least expect it. It comes when no ones looking for it. Now, back to the question: Does age matter? YES, if and only if love isn’t the reason behind your relationship. But, NO when love is the only thing that keeps both of you together. No other things..just LOVE. If you believe in the magic of love, then our hearts will have this connection. *winks*

  1. I read your post and honestly its the same age gap between my husband and me. I couldn’t agree more with you. I love my husband and I couldn’t find any better man than him.
