I'm kind of interested in a guy I met the other night! I'm 19 he's 25, but I can't tell whether to go in for it or not! We haven't kissed anything.. What do you think?

Dating people older than is usually absolutely fine- if your older than about 26/27.
when your 19 and he's 25, well there's going to be some MAJOR maturity differences that might not suit you both!
I went out with a guy 5 years older than me when I was 18 and even then I would admit that I was far more immature than he was, and thats just how it is. I dont mean Immature as in pathetic or in any other negative way I mean immature as in less inexperienced/not willing to take life to seriously and emotionally. For example, when you hit mid twenties- like where I currently find myself, you have to start sharing your commitments out between the person you love, your career, your friends and yourself. I might be guessing here, but I assume you're not looking to progress seriously in your/into a career, get a house, settle down etc?
And after the 25 mark the number of times we want to go out 'partying' starts to decline and we start to realize that we'd much prefer having a lazy night in (because we work all day every day) or having mates round to chill. It also means that he may not be able to dedicate as much time to you as you would like.
That being said you may be more mature for your age and he may immature for his, everyone goes at their own rate. Suss out if you think you two would be compatible or not in what your veiws and wants are at the moment before getting romantically involved.0
