Dear Steve and Shirley, my boyfriend and I have been together for over a year now and although we have a pretty solid relationship, he still questions my loyalty and commitment. I'm 27 and he's 51. He says the age difference doesn't bother him, but he only refers to me as his girlfriend to his friends, not to his family. He says I don't take the relationship seriously and my joking nature has become too much for him. But that's just who I am… I try to find fun in almost everything I do. At times he makes me feel like a child and tells me that I'm not mature enough to be with him. We've both cheated on each other with people closer to our own age, but I really love this man and I want to be with him. How do I show him I'm committed to him? Or is our age difference too big to make this work? I've given up so much to show him that I love him, but no matter what I do, he still doubts my love and loyalty. I even quit doing drugs because he said my drug use was too much for him to handle. I don't know what else I can do to prove my love to him. Please give me your advice.
