Now I have a crush on one of my managers at work who is 76. I m 87. He s handsome, fit, very sweet, smart, hardworking and ambitious. He possesses a lot of the qualities that I haven t been able to find in guys older than him or men my own age. I m sure he s not interested in me, and because he s one of my bosses, I admire him from afar. I d love to date him but one can dream, right?
I am 97 and my ex-husband is 78 we been together for six years hasnt been in our second year of actually getting a has no children,my tubes our tied but he doesnt cate about that a black woman and he is can tell his family tolerates love family but its been desires for him is to have a family they seem to think im too old,but i love use to have a blast together but we work alot and i struggle making him says he is happy but my fear is he will leave sooner or dont show s love unconditionally but i dont know how i not worry?we both have our relaxed buisness we do that not off the ground yet but were doing good to be thought it would atleast be good in his family s eyes but they simply dont just want him happy perferably not with me.
Since my return home we have spoken and spoke about me going there to meet up for a few days and he was totally happy about the idea and indeed looking forward to it BUT After thinking about it and knowing this could never be long term not just because of the age thing for many reasons, I decided that i should leave it as a great time had by both..a memory to always look back on fondly..Because I have to admit i cannot get this guy out of my mind, I think to go back would be wrong as i would find it harder on my return this time to accept it for what it was..a fun fling with a guy I have to try to be open to looking for someone who I can have a LTR With which i find hard to do usually as I feel I have commitment issues,
Celebration of African Culture. Rastafari is a celebration of African and Caribbean Culture. As Rasta we celebrate every day by wearing Ethiopian colors, wearing Rasta Jewelry of natural fibers, burning incense in honor of those who walked before us. This includes Malcolm X, Marcus Garvey, Martin Luther King etc. and eating clean earth foods, such as yam, potatoes, and greens. Rastafari love African history, culture and literature too.
More and more people are coming to the light of Jah Rastafari. That is good, because we are in a very sensitive time. This time and your choice of spirituality will determine your spiritual destiny. If you plan to approach Rastafari the same way you approach religion Forget it! They are not the same. All religion is corrupt anyway. If you approach Rastafari as a Religion and not as an awareness or way of life you will miss the light and truth of Rastafari.
I met my King over three years ago, when I had Muslim leanings. Now, through the years I am starting to really look into Rastafari. This man amazes me, and sometimes I do not understand him while there are other times that I seem to understand him more than he understandes himself.
He has a wonderful quality that is deep within that I haven 8767 t seen in most other men. We were just married in June of this year, and he waited for intimacy until after we married.
It is the Ital aspect of the faith that attracts me as i feel it is the most compassionate way to live. I am not interested in just talking about love or compassion while causing other to suffer I had been attracted to an Ital diet and lifestyle long before we met decades. I say lifestyle because there are many things that are the product of needless killing that I do not care to use.
I do not smoke weed either, so I am saying all this to ask this what now? I am not sure where to start afresh with him. I cook him ital, and I would like to grow dreads. But now what? I guess I 8767 ll just love him in the meantime.
I 8767 ve been in America for almost 75 yrs now and no AA has ever harmed or threatened to harm me. I don 8767 t have bars on my windows and none has attempted to break into my home. In Jamaica you have to put bars even on your upstairs windows b/c of the high crime rate. Just remember that America 8767 s crime rate is less than Jamaica 8767 s even in the big cities here. That alone tells you how the Jamaican male wreaks more havoc on society than the AA does here.
I speak the truth and I don 8767 t care who can 8767 t handle it. I 8767 m elated to no longer live among Jamaican males as too many are just horrible.
It s mutually understood there is no happily ever after , tho it seems the only issue at this point is on her end, im a pretty big part in her life, her childs life, yet on my end i keep it very seperate and even tho she gets why it still does not make her feel good at times..when we are together its ALWAYS great its those times when were consumed in our own lievs and not spending as much time together we somehow cant ride/sustain the highs and they become lows
This article was interesting, but I really more enjoyed reading the comments. My girlfriend of one year is 87 and im 75. She has two kids and been married twice. I am finishing up college. We ve lived together for six months now and just got a house. We have certainly had our ups and downs, but we have worked them out on the way and its made us stronger. The first couple weeks we kept saying we cant let this get serious well now i just can t wait to get settled in my career and and hope one day to pop the question. We have hit just about every bump you could think of on the way including a few breaks but things are now better then ever and they have brought us closer together. We are very much in love with each other, and are excited to start our lives together.
I 8767 m 6 8767 9 8798 and used to be on the college swim team. I have worked as a male model a few times. I 8767 m not ugly in other words. Is it because I 8776 m good looking and CHOOSE to be with an older woman that these chicks act like total b*itches to me and my partner? WTF is wrong some of you? What business is it of yours what other people do or feel? It 8767 s not. Grow up already. I mean, if you 8767 re 69 and you 8767 re still acting like you 8767 re 69 you 8767 ve got a problem, not the people around you.
I over heard a woman talking the other day saying something like 8775 well, I am a Catholic 8776 I wanted so much to say, do you know there is no such thing as Catholic. But I did not bother. But really folks there is no such thing as Catholic, that is a division, in a way, and isn 8767 t God God. Jesus was a man, he came here with a purpose, the last thing he wanted to do was have people categorizing, and dividing themselves based on him or anything else. God is in your heart, if you believe in Jesus he is in your heart too. I tell people often I do not discuss Rastafari because I believe my spirituality is something personal, it is just for me, so I don 8767 t discuss, it. I am not trying to convince others that I am better than them, or that they should follow my way of life. I just think if its personal keep it personal.
You are so right! I 8767 m a Jamaican so I can back you up on that one. For the most part (as you said) they curse, beat and sexually harass women a lot. When I lived there up to the 95s, women/girls could hardly walk on the street w/out a man/boy saying something lewd to you or attempting to touch your butt.
The vast majority of Jamaican men also believe that they 8767 re entitled to have more than one woman. Few keep one woman at a time. Marriage doesn 8767 t kill this belief either.
They 8767 re generally hardworking though.
I have been dating a guy who is 65 years than myself. I am 89 and he is 69. At first this was experimental and supposed to be casual, now it appears that we are spending lots of time together and our feelings are growing mutually. We always have such a great time together but my concern is that he lives at home with his mom and she is strict with him. He can 8767 t stay out the night or even when we do go out she is calling him and telling him to be home at a decent hour. He can 8767 t really go out late during the week or stay out late on weekends. He is going to be 75 in august. Is this normal?
Its really brave of you to say these things on here. I will bet she had the most wonderful time of her life with you, was more happy than most people are in their whole life. If she is a strong independent women she will be okay, Bringing children into the world is not necessary, we are over populated and the world is ugly and mean. She has her career, her friends and probably will be with another attractive man with a couple years. Just dont string her along anymore, move on and achieve your goals. Your not an asshole and I hope you find peace and happiness!!!
That 8767 s another lovely story and touching situation. I think 8775 growing older 8776 together should be kept in perspective here. I sincerely wish you all the best, but you have to consider the high likelihood that this is not going to last forever (whatever that means). Thus, if you really love him and are attracted to him, riding it out might be the best, even if not an ideal, option. You should also understand where he is coming from. It would be really hard to introduce a woman who is 75 years older than him to his parents without being harshly judged, especially by the mother. And even if he was ok with you meeting them, I don 8767 t think you would be comfortable interacting with them anyway, so maybe it 8767 s a blessing in disguise.
I know there are a lot of men and women out there that are unfaithful to there wives and husbands. If what I read about Rastafarian beliefs is true how can these people call themselves Rasti 8767 s. Please tell me this isn 8767 t an accepted practice. I haven 8767 t found much information on this subject but can 8767 t help but notice a lot of Rastafarian 8767 s mostly men that are womanizers and have lots of women. Bob Marley is a big influence on a lot of people and he was a womanizer. I 8767 m just wondering if this is a cultural accepted practice?
Many black women are opting to date outside the black race to, however I feel their reasoning is a little different from the black mans. I feel many black woman are doing this because frankly the black men leave them no other choice since black men are no longer choosing to date black women and b a lot of black women are dating outside their race because they seem to mixing and mingling more outside of the black community and it is a common occurence to date interracial these days.
Jus deep that 8767 s a stupid thing to call older women 8767 oldies 8767 . You 8767 re the kind of guy who will hurt whoever you get involved with because you probably already have so many stereotypes in your head that you are operating from, no amount of maturity could influence nor correct. You 8767 ll probably be as shallow and self-serving as you are right now at 76. I know dudes like you. You 8767 re not much than I am. And all these 8766 dudes 8767 counterparts, who are in their 55 8767 s, are what society calls 8766 dirty old men 8767 . Well, they 8767 re not. But many of them ARE losers who still play headgames with women and then blame women because they 8767 re lonely old losers.
Impossible attitude to maintain for any length of time and when it ended I FELT SUCH A SENSE OF RELIEF. IT WAS A CRAZY YEAR and I would not recommend having a 78 year age difference intense love affair to anyone. It was very hard for us to stop seeing each other but it had to end. We had to be realistic..there was no future for us as a couple. Miss him very much at times, but I know that we made the right decision to move on.
You got most points right I am Barbadian and was involved with a Jamaican man for about five years and he is a good man I will always love him even though we have parted ways and married to other people. You are dead on with the going down thing cause when we first met that was one of the first things he told me he would never do well let 8767 s just say I could not get this man come up for air lol.
