Daddy issues dating older

A young brown girl flooded with images of the European standard of beauty, I often find her longing for features that are not native to her.

Disconnected from the #Team Natural #Melanin On Fleek and #Black Girl Magic movements that support adult Black women in affirming their beauty, the majority of young Black girls will still struggle to find love lines in their God-given features.

In search of a father figure, I sought out unavailable men. I had entertained a crush on a heretofore unattainable man for 10 years when he wrote me out of the blue one day to see if I was interested.

Suddenly all the latent Harlequin romance of my heart lit up like a pinball machine. At the time, I was living in Los Angeles; he was living in Maine.

Growing up, I watched him work even when he was tired, sick and/or miserable to provide for our family.

Every time love entered my life, I, admittedly, compared them to my father.

This question may be a little awkward but I am curious about the psychology on this one... Well I am 20 and female and I'm dating a man 21 years older than me. I don't wish to get into it too deeply but just to scratch the surface I do not at all know who my dad is, I was lied to by my mother my whole life, I harbor resentment towards her yada yada. is there really a correlation between daddy issues and dating older men? And it has nothing to do with him him "taking care" of me.

For our third date, I moved to the other side of the country.

Based on my relationship history, or at least on my history of crushes on unattainable men, this fit the pattern.

Notwithstanding, in my mind's eye, the unattainable man is always somehow "the One," and I hope he will begin to think of me the way I think of him — cycle and repeat.

Of course, the first unattainable man I ever hoped would notice me was my father.
