Tylerbottom saidSo my friend just hooked me up on a blind date! The only problem is that i think he may be too old for me? Hes 30ish and good looking with abs and devlish good looks! Should I stay away and go for my age.Or is age only a number?
If you think he is too old for you - odds are he is.
I don't mean this in a rude way but you are really young; you do not have much life experience; and as a general rule that means you are very easy to take advantage of, especially with the top/bottom power dynamic that your username sort of screams out in no uncertain terms how important it is to your identity.
If you are feeling uncomfortable with the age difference you might want to pay some attention to WHY you are feeling uncomfortable; think about it; and think about it some more.
I am not saying you have been set up with a serial killer rapist sex offender - but seriously. Age difference means something. What 30+ year old wants to hang out with an 18 year old? What are you really going to talk about on the date - the weather? It is probably just a hookup (hit it and quit it) situation where he is going to brag to his friends about taking advantage of a child.
(your age divided by two) plus seven is a good rule of thumb unless there are extenuating circumstances - like you know the guys' parents; are family friends; have been going to the same dentist or something for years.
You seem like a nice guy. Don't be naive. There are predators out there.
