I'm almost 23 & I was always attracted to older men only because it lets me grow and I just have a different view on the world.

Yes, but his criteria for a girlfriend may not be what you want. It's impossible to make a blanket statement about everyone. Obviously there are people who fall in "true love" with that age difference. But from my personal experience, those older guys who I dated had different priorities than what I desired. They wanted me as a girlfriend sure, but it was because their main criteria for a girlfriend was focused on young age, beauty, trophy in front of friends, etc. They were much less concerned with the woman's personality, what they had in common, her intelligence, her sense of humor, etc.
One guy even said to me (he was 35 at the time), "I don't want to date women my own age because I feel like something must be wrong with them if they're still single. Plus, they're too dried up to have kids." This was after his 15 yr stint of sleeping around, and being single for a long time himself. So basically he didn't just meet me and fall in love with me (how I looked and who I was), he sought me out specifically because I was 13 years younger. Basically I felt cheapened and like he didn't see what all I was bringing to the table. The numbers on my birth certificate were enough to land him :/1
