I'm fresh out of college, but still taking post grad classes. A couple of weeks ago I met a girl who is at the opposite end of college. At first I was just friendly and joked that she was to young to hit on, but I've run into her several times since then, and every time I have a great time with her. She seems to be interested in me, but in my head I have some issues with the age.
If I were to pursue her I feel like I would have to be very careful and take things slowly to avoid her friends spooking her.
What is the best way to handle this? Should I just continue being friendly until she makes a move? Any input is appreciated.
(everyone is 18+)

I don't think there is anything wrong with liking someone younger than you are; I mean why would age really matter in a case of what could be a great relationship. I like to think that age is a number, and all that really matters is the maturity of those involved in the relationship. If those party to the relationship are genuine about their feelings, and have no hidden agendas, then I'm all for it.
As for what others' think, I say that it shouldn't really matter, but I know it does, because that's how we go about our daily lives; opinions of others matter, now matter how much we deny it. It's a question of whether or not, you think their views are more important than the way you feel, and for what may be?
As for the approach, it's a case of what you want to achieve from it. If you continue to just being friendly, and only that, then you will have to accept that maybe that's all you will ever be, because maybe that's all she wants as well; just to be friends. There could be a case of something more, but if you want to make a relationship out of it, then maybe a little bit of indication may go a long way, moreso than just being "friendly".
Flirting doesn't hurt does it? (It might do, if you're leading someone on, but if you mean to flirt, for a genuine reason, then it shouldn't really hurt anyone?)0
