And don't call him an “old man,” even if you're joking; it will only make matters worse!
You’re not going to a get a true picture about someone’s lifestyle in a month; give yourself a few months of dating to make sure that you’ve seen him or her in as many real-life situations as possible.
Rather than asking him or her such questions directly, lay low and gather your information over time.
When I would go away on trips and had my guy take care of my apartment, I always came home to flowers on the table, chocolate or homemade gifts. Besides feeling good together in public, you look great together, too.
Even though there have been those people who have judged, you'll be surprised that there are more people on your side than you think.
I always seem to date guys between 10 to 20 years older than me, and from my relationships comes some of the best memories and experiences.
