There's this firefighter that comes into my work quite often- his station is right down the street. Him and his partner have always made a point to stop by and talk with me in my department. He's rather attractive and I get the feeling that he is flirting with me and I kind of flirt back.
But he's 35, and I'm 20, living with my dad, and attending college still. I normally wouldn't even consider someone his age, but I really like him.
Should I do anything? Would someone like him even be interested in me? I don't want to embarrass myself.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that most unattached men (and many attached ones for that matter) would be willing to pursue a relationship of some kind with a physically attractive woman in her early 20s, no matter how old they are themselves. What kind of relationship that might be will depend on what he's looking for, and what you're willing to bring to the table.
Keep in mind that what people enjoy doing with their time, their life and relationship goals, and so on can change a lot over time, and especially over the course of their twenties. What you think you want for yourself at 29 today is very likely going to be a good deal different from what you want for yourself when you actually are 29. At the same time, windows of opportunity don't stay open forever. When you're 29 you might not be able to land a hot 35-year-old firefighter anymore because some 20-year-old is giving him what he wants instead. Pursue happiness, just consider carefully how you will handle situations that arise that could potentially railroad your life.0
