im 19 and he's 44….he has one daughter, 5 years old. and he says he has no problem with the age difference at all. we have so much in common (and no I'm not just saying that, we really do), and he believes that or commonalities can over come our age diff. I honestly don't have have that big a problem with him having a kid, but the age difference does bother me somewhat…
i just don't know if I should get into this, I mean I really like him but could I honestly date or marry a man 24 years my senior….
im kinda having a war in my head right now, mulling over things lol

There's something wrong with this guy. I'm 29 and I'd be creeped out dating someone your age.
Sure, he's 44 and probably a lot more mature than guys your age (although you'd be surprised at how many mature 19-25 year old guys there are out there) but he is too old for you. Way too old.
Think about a future together. If he gets you pregnant in a year or two, he'll be about 70 by the time your kid/s go to college.
You'll be in your 40's and you will end up having to care for this guy while you'll be in the prime of your life and full of sexual energy. He'll be an old man. Even if he stays fit, you'll eventually regret it. There are literally hundreds of other reasons for not getting involved with this guy.
Stay friends with him if you must but try to find someone with similar qualities at a more reasonable age... at least that's what I would do. If I was a 19 year old girl I wouldn't date anyone over 25.
It's not worth it in the long run and trust me, there is definitely something fishy about this guy. A sane, normal 44 year old man would not date a teenager.3
