I met this guy about 2 months ago. We didn't go on a date until about a month ago and have been seeing each other on a consistent basis since then. I have had a great time so far with him and he is the most like my ideal type of guy in comparison to all the other guys I have dated. I'm really starting to like him. Here's the problem. I am 21 and he is 33. When I initially met him I could have sworn he was only 26 or 27, but he's not. I don't want to over react just yet because it is so soon, but I think its definitely something to consider. It's a 12 year difference and that is a lot when you think about most guys that I date are no more that 3 years older than me. Any advice?

That is a huge difference. I actually had to read that sentence twice to make sure that was a 3 and not a 2.
But my take one age differences isn't the number, but the maturity level and where you guys are in your life. I don't know about you, but when I was 21, the last thing I wanted was a serious relationship and marriage and family. I wanted to have fun, travel. And at 33, I would imagine that he's looking more for a wife than for a girlfriend. If those are all things you're OK with, then I don't think age is important at all.0
