Q: I’m a hot 50-year-old who's dating a hot 30-year-old. For six months, it’s been about jetting off to Paris or bouncing to Thailand, so you’ve only seen his sunny side up. You've been married twice, so you know that it takes time to see someone's dark side.When we met six months ago, we agreed to keep it casual and fill our time with romantic dinners, impromptu getaways, and wild adventures. You need more intel on his daily vibe, temperament and credit score. Is Sallie Mae pursing him with wild abandon because he has 100K in student loans? My biggest concern is that this young hottie wants to be a papi.If they are focused more on their own needs than yours, it could be an indication that they will not be attentive to you, emotionally or physically.

Holly Parker, a psychology professor at Harvard teaches a class entitled “The Psychology of Close Relationships,” and she believes that when people date casually, the number of notches on someone’s relationship belt should not be a significant issue.
I’m all for second chances and believing people can change.
And I don’t think we should continuously punish people for stupid mistakes they made in their youth.
However, if the dating progresses to something more serious, perhaps those notches should be examined a little more closely.
She advises looking at the level of responsibility that the person took for the unsuccessful relationships.
