Im 21 and a guy has presented himself as intrested in dating me. he's 31... Its a 10 year age gap, I first met this guy when I had my first job when I was sixteen at a grocery store. he's 31 sucessful owns his own farm, and works two other side jobs just to stay busy. He works with my mom and is always asking about me. My mom jokingly made the comment "if there wasn't such an age gap youd be perfect her!" which he responded with "you know 10 years is that big of a gap." What is your opinion on age gaps? How old is to old?

Age is relative.
This is not to say it's just a number but ithas to be considered in relation to other elements:
*-he's 10 years older, that's 50% of your age. When you were learning to walk he was already looking at girls and geting boners from it.
*-You're a student, responsible for your studies towards your parents. You get an allowance, a few $100/month maybe. (if it's that much)
*-He has a job and outside that, he's only responsible towards himself. He has income ten times as much as your allowance.
*-Your freedom is limited by your parents, he's completely free to do as he likes, when he likes it.
*-You don't have much of a past, maybe a few boyfriends. He has half a life behind him, exes, maybe children somewhere.
That makes for a very slanted relationship, slanted in his favor.23
