The men you are attracted to aren’t good for you, they’re just familiar. Some people go through life not really analyzing what their attraction is based on. As the “Y” in “GYO” you can’t help but wonder, ‘why am I like this?’. Why was my imagination filled with older men who clearly loved and cared for me but my reality was filled with emotionally distant ‘straight’ dad hookups?
Dating isn’t easy if you’re doing it right. Being attracted to a different age group only makes it harder. GYO dating brings its own significant struggles.
