I want to start out by saying I love my boyfriend very much... but that is why I am so conflicted. I am a young (24 y/o) guy who is in a pretty serious relationship... we started fast and never looked back, and two years later we have a shared checking account, a house full of furniture, and two dogs who we love very much. My parter (42 y/o) is a great guy...i seriously love him so much and want to be his best friend forever. I love him so much, and I really can't deal with ever hurting him. He tells me how much he loves me and how much he needs me all the time. But I think I want a partner who is more my age...who I can grow old with and someone who will be accepted by my family. As of now, only my mom knows that I am gay, and she is OK with it, but I don't think they could accept him because he is so much older than me. I just don't know how to make everybody happy, and it's really bringing a lot of stress on me. I know that I want to be with someone who is my age, but I care so much about my boyfriend now that I can't see how I could ever break his heart. I have really dug myself a deep hole and I don't know how to get out of it.
Any advice would be appreciated. I'm totally lost.
