Friendship with a teenager inappropriate?

I regularly talk to this teenage guy as friends, like yeah we have told each other we think the other is cute but never anything weird or sexual and I actually enjoy talking to him he's smart & sweet... but my friend thinks its inappropriate & that I'm somehow being shady & Im not... what do you guys think? Is this creepy?

I feel like I should say... I'm not grooming him or whatever the fuck & I only date guys that are older than me, I'm no cradle robber
