hes unsure of a relationship

I met this guy and we've talked non stop and there is physical attraction on both ends. He's everything I've dreamed of and he says he feels the same way except one issue. Age. He says certain things catch him off guard or makes him feel old. For example when we had a talk about 9/11. He said he heard the news while at work with his brother and I mentioned I was in 5th grade and they let out school early.

I really don't think age means that much. I don't know what to say to him to make him stop worrying and date exclusively

 My SO is 14 years older than me and it's not an issue for us. If it's an issue for your guy, there may not be much you can do. It's all up to the individuals involved and their personal comfort levels. Some people couldn't get past the age gap, some can.

I don't think age is that big of a deal. My husband and I laugh about the difference all the time. When he got his drivers license I was 8 years old.

If he can't see past your age, he isn't the one.

Is age a big thing to him?

If you have to try to convince him that the age difference is not a big deal, then I don't think it's worth it, to be honest. That's not a good way to start off a relationship if he is already having doubts.

That's really not that bad, but if it's going to keep him from wanting a relationship when you want one then it might be time to look elsewhere.

I am 41 and this past summer I dated a guy who was 22. It wasn't weird at all.  I was a bit insecrure at first due to age, but once we had been together a week or so, I got over it and neither of us really thought much abt the age difference.

The relationship ended at the end of summer because he moved to Europe.
