I’m afraid he’ll go public with his #metoo claim

Dear Amy: About 10 years ago, I very briefly dated someone who was 15 years younger than me — I was 38 and he was 23.

He pursued me. The age difference bothered me from the beginning, and I told him repeatedly that I didn’t want to date because of it. I was also dealing with suicidal depression, was unable to work, and didn’t want to date anyone.

He persisted for months and eventually wore me down. (He texted and called daily, showed up at my house uninvited, and made his case his through mutual friends. He even had his parents call me to tell me that they approved).

We dated for about two months. We had nothing in common. He and his friends his were heavy drinkers and drug users, and my depression worsened.
