I think I’m falling for him. Not sure what to do. We met through facebook about two months ago. I never accept friend requests from guys I don’t know, but for some reason I accepted his. I was worried at first, you know? You never know who’s being real over the internet. But he turned out to be a great guy, who thinks I’m beautiful, though I don’t believe it myself. We talk everyday, but have only hung out three times so far. This is mostly because of travel distance. There is a catch, and it’s kind of a big one. He’s 31 and I’m only 18. Never in a million years would I ever consider dating someone that much older, but we get along so well. Incredibly well. We have so many similar interests and share the same ideas. I doubt many people would approve of us dating, specifically because of the age thing. In our minds, age is just a number. I want to make it work. I really want to get to know him better, but distance makes it hard. The feelings I have now are strong, and I find myself genuinely caring about his happiness and dreams. I feel a strong connection. I guess its up to God if this will work. I believe everything happens for a reason, so if this is meant to work, I’m sure we will find a way to make it so. I cry when I read his texts, out of happiness of the possibility of finding someone so great. Is that ridiculous? I don’t know. I just feel a connection. I could be wrong, but my gut tells me I’m right. I haven’t told him any of this, and none of our friends know we talk yet because we don’t know how they would react to the age difference. What should I do??
