i have a crush on a guy who is 12 years younger than me but I'm not sure if he likes me. He has big smile on his face when I approach him and likes talking to me. I'm just not sure if he's just being nice. I don't look my age but I wonder if he knows I'm older than him. When should I mention my age? I want to least get to know him a little better but it's kinda hard when your at work (we work in the same building). Anyway I can ask him his phone number without seeming creepy?

thats a difficult situation, it depends on the guy and if he is interested. He probably knows you are older (well you dont look your age but surely will look older than him). it can go either way, if he is interested then you making the first step because he maybe as worried as you but if he is not then will be ridiculous and you will feel embarrased. I am in same situation and i can't seem to make the first step because i worry it will look stupid
Instead of asking for a phone number outright, find a public event (*) that you two might both be interested in. Ask him about it and if he might want to go. If he seems interested, you can now exchange phone numbers under the ruse of planning.
(*) Google for anything local or regional that has "-fest" or "Festival" or "Fair" or "-con" in the title. For instance, I used to live in the Albany NY area and we had Tulipfest in May, and Larkfest and a jazz festival in September.
