so I met this guy recently and we got along so well from the first time we spoke, I really enjoy talking to him. We're still just friends but there is flirting going on. He wants to hang out and I'm not sure if I should go through with that or not.
Only problem is... He's 18. I know some say age doesn't matter... Guys date young girls all the time so why can't girls date younger guys.
Should I just cut it off and forget him or go with the flow?
I really don't know what to do

In our misandrist society it's perfectly fine for older women to date younger guys but when a older guy dates a younger girl he is branded a creep, pervert and a "predator"2

The reason it's more common for older men to be with younger girls is that girls reach neurological maturity well before men. The brain stops developing at around 23-24 in most women, while for the majority if males don't reach that stage until around 30.
So generally, an 18 year old girl and a 24 year old man will have a lot more in common than an 18 year old boy and a 24 year old woman.1
