Okay before you all flip out, listen. I met this guy and he's super nice and acts young for his age. He's still mature, but we have a lot of similar interests. We've talked about it a bit, and we both acknowledge the 15 year age gap, and it scares both of us. Most people view it as creepy or weird and I totally would've too... before I met him. Please just give your honest opinion about the situation without being rude. Thanks!! :)

If you were 25 and he was 40, this would be less of a problem, but at 18, you have no idea who you really are or what you want in life, and he's at a very different stage in life - even if he is a Peter Pan-type who doesn't want to grow up.
in my opinion, it's fine to have a relationship with this guy if you want to, but know going in that it isn't likely to be a "lifetime"-type relationship. And that's okay - you can learn a whole lot about yourself and what you want by being in a relationship with someone who lacks long-term potential with you, and you can enjoy the time you have together. The eventual break-up might be tough, but you'll survive and be wiser for the experience.5

You already know it's a problem because you're asking about it. Nothing good comes of a man in his *thirties* trying to be with a teenager.5
