I met this really great guy. At first I thought he was just another pseudo-intellectual hipster but after hanging out with him I realized that he was genuinely smart and could hold his own when discussing psychology, philosophy, criminology etc. Usually, as a rule, I don't date. I see the messy, petty, plain dumb over romanticized relationships my best friends are in and cringe. I think it's very hard to find someone your actually compatible with so most people settle for less and change their own personalities instead of finding someone more suited to them. The thing is, this guy is perfect. He's intellectual and has an good job. He's great with people, cute, humble and values different opinions and culture. He basically sums up my perfect man. He's the kind of person that you can talk to about anything and everything for hours. And he respects me for who I am. Oh, and, I know for a fact that he has a big thing for me.
The thing is... I'm 17 and he's 25. I feel like that creates a big barrier. And he told me he's the kind of guy that values relationships. I, however value open relationships (Humans were not meant to be monogamous) Should we be friends with benefits, or should I test the whole relationship thing out? I don't want to ruin our friendship, its amazing.

I don't think that it matters that the age gap matters that much, as you seem pretty mature. I think you should see if there is a relationship there.0
