How to Tell If Your Older Man Is Serious About Being with You: Part 2

Older Man is Serious About His Relationship With YouI finished up my salad and Mr. Brown, my much older boyfriend, asked if he could come with me to the toy store to help me shop for my daughters’ Easter gifts. I laughed and told him that he was welcome to, but that I didn’t know how much fun it would be. He smirked at me, and I realized that he and I both knew that we’d have fun regardless of what we were doing.

We got in his Bentley and headed toward the toy store. As we stepped out of the car, he reached over and held my hand—it was the first affectionate thing he had done outside of the bedroom. It was nice, but surprising, since there was no guarantee that we wouldn’t run into someone we knew. We grabbed a cart and got to work.

As we walked up and down the aisles, he was grabbing toys off the shelves, playing with them, and asking me about what characters and toys were popular now. He told me a little bit about his favorite toys growing up, and asked me about mine. It felt amazing to just laugh and spend quality time with him, like a real couple.

After checking out, we walked to the car and started loading the trunk. When we were done, Mr. Brown told me that he wanted to talk to me about something. He said that Mrs. Brown had told him about her deteriorating health issues. I was surprised, because I didn’t get the impression from her that she was planning on telling him so soon.

He looked at me with sadness in his eyes as he explained that he was not really surprised at the state of her health—she had been getting sick for a few years now. He also told me that their sex life had been pretty non-existent, essentially since the day they were married. Because she didn’t want children, there was never any need for them to really be intimate, and they both seemed to be happy carrying on with other people on the side.

I told him that I was sorry, but that I needed to excuse myself to get to my kids. He gave me a hug and held me a little longer than usual. I told him that I would see him on Sunday at the Easter egg hunt, along with my kids. He helped me transfer everything to my car, gave me a quick kiss, and off I went.

By the time I got to my mother’s house, I had already gotten a text from him saying that he couldn’t wait to meet the girls again, and that he hoped they loved their gifts. He also told me I was a great mother, and that he was looking forward to hopefully talking more on Sunday.

I didn’t know what more he wanted to talk about, but I felt a little bit better and could breathe easier knowing that his wife’s health condition was out in the open now. I still didn’t want to tell him anything about the fact that she suspected he was having an affair, although I would have the chance to soon enough.

About Amber C

As a married mother of two kids, I don’t have much time for the bar scene anymore. Hell, I don’t have much time for any scene anymore. So, when a few months ago I was invited out for a cousin’s bachelorette party, I happily accepted. The night started off at a local martini bar, and that’s where I ran into a former boss of mine. This man is a married, very successful lawyer, who has a drive that is unmatched by any man my age. We had a great rapport, and there had been so much chemistry between us, during all of our encounters. And when I saw him that night in the bar, I could tell that nothing had changed. After a few drinks, the bachelorette wanted to move on with her ladies to a popular club. I knew I would feel out of place at that club, and so Mr. Brown (as we’ll call him) offered to keep his eye on me and drive me home. His offer surprised me, but I told my cousin he was a former coworker and that I felt safe with him. And I wasn’t supposed to be home for another two hours, so no harm no foul—right? Soon after the ladies left, Mr. Brown suggested that we take a drive to see his new condo, and then I remembered his black Bentley and I didn’t resist.

How to Tell If Your Older Man is Serious About Being With You: Part 1After I unexpectedly had sex with Mr. Brown, my older lover—who was also my boss—in his office, the rest of the week seemed to fly by pretty quickly. I had finalized all of the arrangements for the company Easter egg hunt; although I still needed to make sure that I had my daughters’ gifts taken care of.
On Friday, I went to pick up my paycheck and noticed that there was something else in the envelope with my check. Mr. Brown had placed a $500.00 gift card to a local toy store, a little something extra to pay for my kids’ Easter gifts.…
