I like a guy who is 2 years younger than me. I think he likes me (he's been showing some of the signs for a few years), but he hasn't deliberately expressed interest or anything. I'm wondering if he's afraid to show interest because I'm older than him? I'm 20 and he's 18. Before now, I haven't made a move because obviously an adult cannot date a minor. But he's been 18 for almost a year now and he hasn't asked me out or anything.
I want him to pursue me, but I think I may have to start the ball rolling because he's not doing it. Would it be starting off on the wrong note if I asked him out? I don't want this to be a relationship where I'm always pursuing him.
Do you think he would have asked me out by now if he truly liked me? Or do you think the age difference is holding him back? He is a shy introvert, so that may be a factor...
Does anyone have any advice on what I should say to him?
I may be getting his phone number soon. Should I arrange to meet and tell him in person, or could I tell him over the phone?

If anyone considers age a factor in a relationship (unless if it's 8 years apart) then they're obviously not mature enough to understand what love really is. Love isn't about how old the person is, it's about how beautiful their persona is to the other that they fall for.
I'm crushing on someone who is actually 3 years older than me. I've always had a thing for girls who are older and it's not because of their age, I just tend to like women who are haha. Well anyway, he might be a little shy or feels like he will be awkward with you. I say you do make a the move, there's nothing wrong with that.
Wish you the best of luck.1
