so I'm 18, and I met this guy online. he's 33, divorced, and has a 5 year old. we have been talking online for a couple weeks and I think I might have feelings for him. the other day he asked me how I felt about long-distance relationships...should I drop him? or is it harmless?

There is no way anyone on here can tell you if he is harmless or not. But as far as the age difference goes, it doesn't matter. If you guys hit it off, who cares. My best friend is from the Philippines and he just came back this week in fact. He says over there it is nothing like America where everybody obsesses over the perfect age difference and the perfect height difference and perfect this and perfect that. And the divorce rate there is a FRACTION of what it is in the U.S. I love the good 'ol U.S. of A. But one of our problems is pop culture has taken over. Too much t.v. Desperate Housewives, Nip Tuck, and reality shows. We have checklists instead of love. And you see where it gets us? I am 31 and my girl is 22 (as illustarted). She tells all her people that she is happer than she has ever been, and I can honestly say that I am too. So do your thing and don't worry about nothing else. But I will say this: I was involved with a girl with a kid for YEARS. Make sure you guys are on the same page with parenting because that can get real nasty. And make sure he isn't a murderer. Check the sex offender registries and oh yeah, Nancy Grace. She busts those fellas out cold as ice. Good luck.1
