Am dating much older man
Some of the other reasons commonly cited for women dating older men is that they are better in bed, more chivalrous, have better apartments, more ready to have children, are patient, and more assertive.
But none of these “pros” of dating older men necessarily hold up.
(I know how that sounds: I cringe now just typing it.) But at the time, to us, it wasn't weird or taboo as much as this epic, forbidden romance. Before long we were all hanging out together, driving around in his car: T and me in the front, my friend and her boyfriend in the back.

I told him that this wasn't true: it was my choice.
We were still at an age where our parents insisted on treating us like children. After awhile, my friend and her boyfriend disappeared, leaving T. What I do remember is sitting on a couch with T., him putting on a Elton John song and telling me, in words I can't recall specifically, that he wanted to be my boyfriend. I just recall being almost to my house, when I told T.
