I finally met this guy on a blind date who is 8 years older than me. A common friend hooked us up. The date went nicely, no awkward moment at all. Later in the evening I received a text message from him >> Can we be friends?
What's the deal?

The deal is that we don't know.
Worst case scenario: he wasn't attracted to you, which doesn't mean you are ugly or anything like that, but rather that you just weren't his type for some reason.
But there's a very high probability that it isn't even that. He may well just want to take things slow, either because he is afraid of commitment due to his past, or because he's not sure if HE is good enough for you (insecurities from his past), or whatever.
The point is: you need to be a grown-up and TALK to him and ask HIM what he means. Don't be afraid to do that; it will help both of you. Also, remember that dating is a lot like baseball. A great hitting average is .300 (30%), meaning 7 out of 10 at-bats are a failure. You aren't going to click with every guy you date, not by far; no one does, and that's totally okay. Don't get too concerned if you don't click with someone, it just means you need to move on to the next guy.0
