Dating someone when I am 29 and he is 27 seems OK. But when we both get older, wouldn't he be looking for a younger girl? I feel like it is inevitable, just the idea hurts me so much. Feel so insecure. Sometimes I think to break up just to avoid that moment to come.

Now that's just crazy talk! There is a stereotype that men like younger women - and in some cases, that's true - but it's by no means the case for all guys.
For a start, the age gap between you is positively miniscule. Two years is a big gap between the age of 12 and 14, but it's nothing in your late 20s and early 30s, and will diminish still further as you get older. Unless there are behavioural problems on top - for instance, he is far, far more immature than you, making his age an issue - I really wouldn't worry.
Even if the age gap were bigger, it wouldn't necessarily be a problem. One of my best friends is married to a woman almost 10 years older than him. And he couldn't be happier. He used to be quite immature, but having someone older around to stabilize him and give him a bit of perspective has made him grow up into a truly admirable person.
I honestly think you're worrying about nothing here. But you should maybe talk to your partner about how you feel. I'm sure he'll tease you about it a little! But hopefully that'll make you realize that you honestly have nothing to worry about.
