Dating older italian men
The fact that it was just me and my mother helped me in the long run. I see a lot of my younger self in him, and I want him to avoid making the mistakes that I made. I just brought you coffee using a small plate and some sugar, but it’s against my own nature. When he gets up, he eats the breakfast I make for him, he dashes to work. The only thing I ask him is to let me know whether he will have dinner at home, just to know whether we can have that span of time where we’re all gathered at the table and talk.
I would not get offended if you had just brought me a cup. Federico: If I have a work dinner or emergency, she can get mad at me as much as she wants for my failing to let her know, but it’s not actually my fault nor my decision.
Regardless of gender, it’s fundamental to be self-sufficient. Rossella: I try to make sure that dinner is ready for him when he gets back from work. When I am at home, I tidy up my own things as a measure of privacy: I touch my own things, I take care of my own things.
The reason for men staying at home may be as much economic as it is cultural: the Italian workforce suffers from a lack of upward mobility, which has caused the job market to stagnate as older generations stay in their jobs well beyond 60, the typical age of retirement.So right now my demands on him decreased, because I realize how busy he is.
