I know a few girls in their early 20's that date guys around my age. Now I don't date anyone that young, different planets I think. But do you see a relationship work with like a 12 year age difference?

If she's 28 and he's like 40, then yeah. As long as the younger party is old enough to have "experienced" the world and know what they want in life and have already kick started it (ie gone to college, already working and at least aiming for independence, have been out in the world), then I don't see anything wrong with it. There's an obvious generation gap, but it could work as long as both parties are mature minded and ready to settle down.
23 is a bit young, she still probably doesn't know what she wants to do with her life and you don't want to invest time and money in her just for her to find out later that she doesn't see a desirable future with you.0

Why wouldn't it work? If both are in love with each other, the likelihood of this relationship to fail is no better than that of a few year age difference. It depends on the people and the context of the relationship. Age difference isn't an issue as long as the two are committed.1
