The Younger Man | A Dream

business-user4I had a dream on the morning of 8/4/14.  I’m working in a busy corporate office with a large staff and several young women always rushing around.  The business owner is a relatively young, wealthy and powerful man. He’s tall, dark and handsome with chiseled features, beautiful brown eyes and a perfect smile.  BusinessHe’s clean cut, well groomed and always wears stylish custom made clothing. The handsome business owner is friendly and charismatic, and his female employees are all smitten with him.

This beautiful and seemingly perfect man becomes very interested in me, often calling me into his office, asking all sorts of “business” questions, to engage me in conversation.  Later, we begin having daily talks and later go on several dates.  We have great fun together, often holding hands, later becoming close friends.

During one of our talks, my friend discloses that he’s in love with me and that we should make it official.  I’m surprised and a bit concerned about this declaration of love.  Sensing my concern, he gently takes my hand lovingly gazing into my eyes.  cutcaster-photo-100500607-Busy-meetingAs he playfully strokes my fingers, my passion for him stirs and I fight back tears.  In that moment, I realize that I’ve fallen in love, but I also have serious reservations about an exclusive/serious relationship with this much younger man.  Even though we got along very well and always had a wonderful time together; deep down I know our age difference could potentially create conflict and heartbreak down the line.

MP900302908I adamantly express my concerns placing emphasis on the age difference.  With all sincerity, he makes it clear that his intentions are real and true, and he reassures me that nothing and no one could ever come between us. I pause for a moment looking deep into his beautiful smiling eyes, wondering if he’s worthy of my trust, my heart and my future. The dream ended.
