age difference and I love you's
« on: March 12, 2018, 09:31:55 am »
I notice age difference in the RD is not as taboo as in America. What are your thoughts/experience with this? I met a lovely young man a year ago and have been back several times since. We stay in touch when I am not there, and when I am there we spend time together (and no, we have not had sex). But he says I Love You frequently, and as an american I do not say that nearly as fast as a Dominican man says it. Also, I am 40 (in great shape, and don't look old) but he is 27. He knows I want to move to the RD, and he does not want to move to USA. Neither of us has been married or has kids. Neither of us has a lot of money, but we get by. I have a hard time getting past the age difference though.

There are different norms in different cultures. Saying "I love you" isn't as big a deal there as it is here and the same goes with ages differences. If you feel uncomfortable with it then that is your level of comfort. It doesn't apply to your "friend' or others.

Age difference is totally unimportant in the DR. One of the reasons is that many Dominicans really do not know how old they are. It used to be traditional to always lie about the date of birth of boys and make them younger so that they may have more chance of the dream life of being a major league baseball star! Many people did not have their births registered until years after they were born so there are often mistakes there too. Personally I would not worry about it. There is an age gap of 14 years between me and my Dominican husband and we have been happily together for 17 years now.
