There's no reason to keep yourself from a potentially amazing relationship, just because society tells you it's weird.

Men who are older tend to be more ready to take those steps toward commitment sooner.” Karen admits, though, that age doesn’t necessarily dictate whether or not a guy is ready to commit.
