Thoughts of the future and the numbers thing... Posted on May 23, 2012 at 08:24 AM

I'm truly enjoying life with my sweetlove. :) I'm 47 and he's 29. We're happily in love and love each other very much! However, something that I've quit doing for about a year or so is now creeping back into my psyche. It's the numbers thing. I used to think, "Ten years from now, I'll be 56 and he'll only be 38..." It wrecks havoc on my confidence and with my ability to experience and enjoy this beautiful relationship for what it is. Just recently, I began doing this numbers thing again and I know I really need to stop! Sometimes I wonder if he does the numbers thing also, but I know I'll never ask him. I don't want to ask him because I'm afraid it will "remind" him of how old I really am. I know that sounds silly, but sometimes I can't help but think that.


I'd like to know from the other women (or men) on here if they have also done the numbers thing and if they've stopped, how they did it and what mental processes they've gone through to achieve that. My significant other more than likely doesn't do the numbers thing - and if my age doesn't bother him and he doesn't think about it - why can't I accept that and just enjoy the love that we share?
