He treats me respectfully, takes me out on dates (we like to go out to eat, go kart racing, going for runs, playing video games together) and wants me to feel comfortable. He knows he likes me more than I do at this point, and has allowed the relationship to progress at my pace. His only character flaw I've observed is that he is prone to letting people take advantage of him and use/ abuse him because he feels committed to making other peoples lives better even when the relationship is toxic.
I'm leaving for china in a month for four months on a study abroad and he is so excited for me. He can't wait for me to go! Has been researching it and everything. I figure if he sticks around for that four months, I may consider being his girlfriend officially. The only problem is, he would be my first boyfriend, and my family is very particular about me in general. My mother is very religious, and expects me to be with someone equally as religious. He is not. He did not finish college because he had preferred to work at the time which he regrets but he is very intelligent. My parents won't appreciate that either. As shallow as it sounds, he may not be attractive enough for my mothers standards. (which I dont care about but I know shell give me hell for it). And last but not least, he's 27 and she'll think he is too old. What do you all think?

He sounds good to me... personally I prefer older men and 6 years age gap isn't that much (according to me). And if you guys are happy and comfortable with each other then I don't see the problem :)
It wouldn't matter to me if my guy isn't religious (coming from a family of religious people), but anyways I think you should talk with your mother. Whether or not he is attractive shouldn't matter to any of your parent because you're the one who's supposed to choose not them. Talk to your mother before introducing them.
