Mature for my age and most people don't think I am 19, he was shocked to find out how old I am and he asked if I had dated older guys before and I told him I have, and it didn't change much, but he won't ask me out. I can't figure out if it's the age gap he is uncomfortable with or that he isn't interested in a relationship. So guys, is age a issue in relationships?

Nine years is a huge age gap no matter what. At your age, it's insurmountable. You and a 28-year-old are at completely different stages in your lives.
Also, it's not a good idea to date a coworker, but that's a topic for a different discussion.

It definitely seems like the age gap. I have nothing against them at all, my boyfriend is actually 5 years older than me, but I think having this wide of an age gap at such a young age can cause problems. You're basically just starting your adult life, while he's been an adult for a while... I know it sounds stupid when put like that, but I hope you get the point. I'm not saying it can't work, it totally can, you just have to consider where you are in your life and where he is in his life. Maybe that's what's holding him back.
