I´ve been single for a year now and I really want to meet someone new. I´m 25 years old. I met a guy through Facebook because we have friends in common, but we never met. We started chatting and everything seemed great, he was funny and we have A LOT in common. He did seem a bit weird and we I asked him his age, he told me he is 45. I continued talking to him, but when he asked me out, I told him I had a boyfriend. We decided we could be friends anyway. I looked at some pictures of him and he does look like a 45 year old and I did not feel attracted to him at all.
But now I feel kind of guilty, because I do want to meet someone and have fun but I DO NOT feel comfortable with the idea of dating someone so much older than me, let alone sleeping with someone that age. I still feel like a kid, well not a kid, but a young girl. I want to date someone my age, is this normal? and should I feel guilty about not wanting to date him?

There is nothing wrong with dating him and having a good time. As for a longer term relationship, very often the problems that occur will result from the two of you being at different stages of your lives. He may be set in his career and be less flexible because of it. He may want to settle down and maybe you don't, etc., etc. ... the list is long. The funny thing is if you were 40 and he was say 55, there might be less problems .. the older you get the less these age differences may matter.0
