Dear QueerClick,

I recently met this guy who I absolutely adore, he’s gorgeous, sexy and everything I could want in a man. Although we have only known each other for a short while (2 months) I dearly want to spend the rest of my life with him – the thing is when I hinted at this he seemed quite put off by it, in fact he’s been making excuses not to meet ever since.
Do you think I have come on too strong too early? I know this is a difficult one to gauge but I don’t want to lose him by being too pushy, nor lose him by being aloof and not letting him know my feelings.
Quite recently he came out of a long-term relationship (7 years), whereas all my relationships have been fairly short, (1 year or less) and I wonder if its this that holds him back. He won’t talk about his past relationships so I don’t know how to approach him on this subject.
There is an age difference too between us, I’m 24 years old and he’s 36 years old, not that I see the age gap as a problem, although some of my friends say that the age difference and his past are the root of the problem.
I would appreciate it if anyone has any ideas to help me with this?
