It’s Not Me It’s You

I’m only thirty seven
He’s six years senior
But called me old
I think he’s lethargic
I want someone bold
To stay young forever
Hike around the world
Build each other up
Learn and grow together
Not cut one another
Down like insecure bullies

    1. I don’t think I’m old, either. I think he just doesn’t know how old he is 😉

    Important to keep in mind it is a partnership not an adversarial relationship. Too many breakups for those who get into the vicious loop of the 2nd one.
