I feel age is just a number, but I don't understand why this man wants to be with me, he's wonderful, kind, sweet, smart, funny&simply amazing. I don't feel good enough for him. Why does he want to be with me?

Because the main things that men look for in women have nothing to do with age or experience.
They are typically looking, in the short run, for looks and sexual availability.
In the long run, they want that plus sweet and maybe good with kids, + enjoyable to be with.
Since a young woman can have the latter and tends to have an advantage in the former, plenty of older men are happy to date younger women.
Its much less common the other way because women tend to value some of the things men gather with time. So younger men may look better, but are less wise, mature, established, confident etc. (in some cases). But men are indifferent to a lot of that ...1
