It's not weird tbh. Up to 13 years older can still be OK specially if the guy looks kind of young and the girls is mature enough.
I personally think it's too old for me though, I prefer someone younger than 28 and around my age, but it's not weird.
For example Demi Lovato and her boyfriend or Fiance are 13 years apart (23/36) but they look good together :
But it's not really about the age gap, more about the girl's age? I don't know I believe that I'm mature but even now at 20 I can't see myself with a guy in his 30's since we're both in different chapters in life , let alone at 18! But I guess it's just me and it entirely depends on you and the girl :)5

There would be plenty of additional complications including both people wanting different things (or having different priorities) in life, the difference between mental maturity causing both to be way off-sync, a whole generation gap to bridge, likelihood the younger one won't even know what he/she really wants and probably haven't found his/her "place" in life yet, and a likelihood the older one will hit walls (illnesses/complications that come with age, menopause, death) way before the other one does which could make for additional complications.
Then there's also the chance of the younger one being very naive still.
Other than that, technically it's possible. Some people manage to make it work, but if you decide to try make sure both parties have thought about these things, and that at least the mental maturity of the younger one is fit for it.
Personally I can't really imagine myself date someone who's younger than 20 at age 26, preferably even 22+ or something, simply as most people I've met below that age still seem quite lost in life or busy changing a lot. I am aware exceptions exists though, but so far the women I've had a romantic interest in happened to be 22+ anyway.0
