The thing is I have this odd sexual attraction to him too. If he were some macho type I wouldn't feel like such a predator or cougar but he's a skinny nerdy type. That's why we get along. On a nerd level.
Normally i would never even consider dating a coworker but as it happens I'm moving to another company. I also usually would never consider dating someone younger than me by more than a year or so.
He's mature for his age though and has his shit together...
So torn when and if should age matter? I've dated men a lot older than me so I almost feel as if I'm being a hypocrite. But I'll admit it's the whole I'm a woman and women who date younger men are creepy thing that bothers me.
See, I'm not such a feminist after all. 😛

Do it! He's my age he's not looking for some fantasy and shit. You're only a few years apart. Not like you are 55 and he's 26 haha.1

Well my guy is three years younger than me. I think it's more about where a person is in life rather than age. At times, he can be a bit immature but I think it's a guy thing more than an age thing. And the cougar thing doesn't really fit here, however I'd submit to you that this feeling of yours is coming from something else, not his physical nerdy nature. You're going to need someone that'll be able to keep up, he may be giving you some cues that are putting you off a bit, small things that you haven't figured out yet what they mean. However, if you are attracted and you get on I'd say why not feel it out a bit?
And on a side not, my guy and I met at our work place, though we didn't work for the same company we worked in the same building and everyone knew each other and our two companies did work together and we dated/lived together for more than a year whilst working in the same building.3
