Okay, I was just curious what everyone's view on age differences was. Maybe during teenage years and during adult years, it's different for both, maybe if it's love, it's love.
I want to ask this because, reccently I've been thrown by some unknown force into a situation that couldn't be more awkward. There is this person...a guy...a boy...and that's just the problem, that's what he is, a boy! I've fallen for him. I know they say that males mature at a slower rate than females, but in his case, I don't see that as being true. He cooks for his family, he works on his farm, he builds things, drives tractors, and even when you speak to him, you know you're not speaking to an ordinary boy. But one of the most extraordinary things about him is his music. He can improvise on his saxophone for 20 minutes and have you thinking that he is playing an actual score. He can play percussion with his feet while playing the saxophone while improvising. He even knows how to improvise on the piano when he has never had a lesson in his life. He is a child prodigy, I swear.
Anyway, he is considerably younger than me, at least at the stages we are in life. Normally, it hasn't been too excruciating to ignore feelings when they are unrequited. But there's the problem, they aren't unrequited. But I can't bring myself to show any type of movement or encouragement because I don't want him to get hurt badly. I feel it might be inappropriate.
I was just wondering if anyone had any insight on this matter. Thank you for listening to me!
