Even if it doesn't work out baba, you can always say that you tried, and trying can be quite fun. I'm a fence sitter, it all depends on a variety of factors. There can be two people at two very different points in their lives, and while they may be in love with each other, it can be difficult to suit your needs around the needs of your partner. You want to be with them, but deep down you want to do something else too, and you want to do it soon, you don't want to wait for them to get to that point, and vice versa, your partner wants to do something that you've gotten over a long time ago. However on the other hand...I was recently attending a CPR/First-Aid course, and most of the people I was there with were a tad older than myself, they appeared to be anyway. The instructors were the closest people to my age, and then this one other person. By the second day, he actually bought me some lunch, which I thought was sweet, especially since I'm recently single . We had similar interests, he has a good job, clearly can take care of himself, had aspirations of where he wanted to be (and most importantly, he was single) he surely looked in his 20s, but then somehow our ages were brought up, and I happened to say, "Well I'm still just 19, I have a ways to go before they're looking to hire (on the police force that is [the average hiring age is about 25]) and he said "Oh, well then I guess I'm okay then, I'm 33." Oh, but if I had to make a choice, I'd definitely go for it, I mean--you only live once, and you know what they say about having loved and lost.
