So I'm a graduate student, and I just started my PhD this past fall. Everything has been good in terms of adjustment to a new school and all of that, and right now I'm working towards getting my social life back on track. There is a guy who I have been talking to who I see a few times a week. He's a 5th year senior, so around 22 (I'm recently turned 25), and we seem to have a good connection, at least in a friendly way. It's still really early on to see if this is going to turn into anything, but it could. I guess I'm just wondering if there's anything that I might be missing in how undergrad guys might see or think about female grad students. He's mentioned his being an undergrad to me a few times, almost like he's putting himself down for not being older, which I don't really think is an issue at all. But then again, I've never dated anyone younger than myself before, so this is something new I'm trying to navigate, and I don't want to distance myself from him just because of my education level.
Any insight would be great!

I see nothing wrong with it at all. Try hanging out with him, then you'll know if you actually like him.1
