- 5 years older is to old
- Age is anything but a number

Age is relative.
This is not to say it's just a number but ithas to be considered in relation to other elements:
*-he's 10 years older, that's 50% of your age. When you were learning to walk he was already looking at girls and geting boners from it.
*-You're a student, responsible for your studies towards your parents. You get an allowance, a few $100/month maybe. (if it's that much)
*-He has a job and outside that, he's only responsible towards himself. He has income ten times as much as your allowance.
*-Your freedom is limited by your parents, he's completely free to do as he likes, when he likes it.
*-You don't have much of a past, maybe a few boyfriends. He has half a life behind him, exes, maybe children somewhere.
That makes for a very slanted relationship, slanted in his favor.

I know a couple who are 60 and 70 years old. 10 years right there. You think that matters when you're 60/70? No.
Age matters less the older you get. When you're a teenager even 3 years can make a huge difference. But as you get older maturity differences between the ages get smaller and smaller.
The only problem I could see with 21/31 is him wanting to settle down and you still being all young and spry.
