Am I (18) being friends with a 24 year old a bad thing?

Anonymous
I am using an app called bottled. I don't know if I'll be in a romantic relationship with this guy for a few reasons but the main thing is the age gap. Even if we keep the relationship platonic is this wrong? And I know this might be too much to ask from the Internet but when you answer this I'm plea that you not be rude or condescending. I haven't told my parents this personally I probably won't tell either of them they tell each other everything then again I don't know. I would rather not accidentally overhear another conversation about myself while they are talking on the phone. Thank you if you took your time to read all of this.
