I've been seeing this guy for over a month now. I'm 21 and he's 27, we have many things in common but he is obviously more mature than me. I really like him and he says that he feels the same way but we can feel that there is an age barrier between us, especially when it comes to communicating virtually (text messages, chatting) like there's nothing to talk about, or he sometimes comes off as distant.
Communicating is a lot better when we're together, although I notice that he doesn't open up that easily. It's as if I need to warm him up or give him a drink before he loosens up. He told me that he usually has second thoughts about sharing because I might not understand (since I'm younger and all) I really like him and I am open to adapt his way of thinking, Can we work through this? How?

you're not that much younger than him? Seems to me its more of an ego than maturity. Age barriers only occur when one of you thinks the other is incapable of reaching their level of maturity, which may be the case sometimes, but here i highly doubt it. It looks as if he thinks just because he's older that he's more mature. And that's immature to treat you like that just because of your age. you're both in your 20's and usually the "age barrier" ends at 18 because you're adults. Seems he hasn't quite grasped that yet.0
