He's 28 I'm 18. We like each other But I'm scared he may or may not be too old. It's what my parents say... but I really like him. So I wonder if it's them effecting me. And should I make a relationship with him?

First of all, your parents are stupid. If I had a daughter who was 18 and dating a 28 year old, then for as long as the guy wasn't dangerous and she isn't getting pregnant, what do I care? How is she supposed to learn about men and relationships if I'm constantly keeping her sheltered and living in a bubble while she sneaks around behind my back and potentially getting herself into bigger trouble?
Secondly, that 28 year old was 18 once upon a time. He's 10 years older now. He's still a person, and guess what, he's in a better position than 18 or 22 year olds. Hopefully he's finished with his education, he's working, he's getting financially stable, he's ready to start building a life with someone, by 28 he's less likely to cheat on you, his eyes aren't blurred with testosterone anymore and he can actually focus on your sexual needs and pleasing you sexually, he can actually listen to you and you guys can have a real relationship together, etc.
Third and lastly, if he's a nice guy, you can safely have a sneak-peak at what life 10 years down the road looks like, and decide if you want to rush full speed ahead or if you maybe want to slow down and enjoy where you are right now.1
