My bf is 16 yrs. younger and different culture, but 4 yrs ago none of that seem to matter. I knew because of our age gap we couldn't last forever, but 3 break ups later all of which "were for my best interest" I'm trying to pick up the pieces again. And he to is so depressed and stressed out I worry about his health. He's beyond stressed out with work because he worrries the company may lose their funding and he takes on the burden of taking responsibility of his mother.
