I'm 26 soon to be 27 I've dated guys my age, younger, and a little bit older but they are just so immature. Guys around my age don't know how to treat a girl now a days. I started getting closer with a friend that is 17 years older then me. We get along super great. He knows what I been through so he knows who I am and what I want in a man. It just so happens that he revealed his feelings for me almost over a year ago. I find him attractive, he listens to me, gives me advice and he's a complete gentlemen. I'd love to date him again but the only problem I had was the age difference and ppl judging because of the age difference. That's the only thing stopping me from having a normal relationship with him. Advice??? What shall I do? Because seriously this guy is like everything that I have been looking for in a man. Thanks for reading this hope I get some comments.
