Grown up dating
You trust each other because you know that you're both trustworthy. You don't collapse into each other or cease to exist outside your bedroom for the first three months.
Because you have shit to do, and he has shit to do.
But it's not until you're with a grown-ass man that you know what this really means.
It means that you can put anything on the table, and as long as you are respectful and honest and kind, you'll receive the same treatment in return.
He's confident enough in his own life that he can support someone else's dreams and goals.
He's matured enough not to let the little things blow him over.
You realize that most of the stress you suffered in your previous relationships stemmed from nothing more than the simple fact that you have to be of a certain maturity to actually have a healthy, happy, functioning relationship.
It's an experience every last one of us deserves to have. Are you sure the man is your life is truly a grown-ass one?
Before then, they'll exist only as these mystical creatures — hypothetical hybrids of your dad's best qualities and the way Mc Dreamy treats Meredith Grey. It is an absolutely magical, unprecedentedly wonderful experience to be with one of these emotionally stable and mentally secure individuals.
He actually wants to show you how much he cares, and this is one of many ways he does it.
He wants to get dressed up and take you somewhere nice.
You don't have to do influence him to be an adult, and you certainly don't have to be anxious over whether he's going to be irresponsible in some devastating way.
You can talk about money and know that he'll be reasonable and responsible about it.
