I'm a college sophomore, recently turned 20 this year. Been getting to know this guy who said he was 17. Totally platonic because I'm studying English and he wants to study that too. So we chat about favorite authors, books & share our own creations.
But he soon started saying, "wow. You're amazing <3 Beautiful <3 I wish I was with you." etc. Very flirty & generous with his compliments.
Been single for over a couple of years now so that came to a shock. I told him I wasn't comfortable with the flirty behavior because of the age difference (I'm looking for just a friendship) yet he's still pretty adamant in his feelings towards. I'm not really sure on what the proper things I should do.

Sounds like the other end of my deal. I'm 17 and she's 19, But there's nothing wrong with an age difference of 2-4 at our age. It's actually pretty common, but other people do have other feelings about it. Personally, I like my friend because she's mature, funny, gorgeous, and we have a lot in common. We've been talking about getting together for a while now, but have decided to wait until school's out (so we can focus on grades). We met in school, similar to you and your friend, and have gotten well acquainted with each other. She'll be turning 20 in August, and I 18 in October. She's a freshman in college, I'm a junior in high school. If your only reason for not wanting to be "with" him is because of the age difference, then let it go. Although it is more common for the girl to be younger in a relationship, it is not the law. But if you feel strongly about just being friends for that reason, then just keep enforcing it. Make it a clear boundary that will separate you two. And as for the messages he's sending you, some men feel the need to show their passion for the people they care about. I am one of those men, and I think it's a noble reason. Just as chivalry is noble, so is showing affection for your love. Hope this helped you somehow. (And by the way, if you're really studying English, please reread your post and correct yourself in places. It's a little embarrassing on your part. Just some small mistakes...)
