A guy younger than me

A significant gap in age difference does not necessarily mean that two people will not get along, or that they will face problems. If both partners have a similar level of maturity when it comes to thinking and behavior, then age will not matter.
Age difference should not be the reason for you to rethink getting together with someone! There are far more important things to consider before getting involved with another person. For instance, do you have things in common? Do you get along well? Do your personalities complement one another? Do you share each other’s values and beliefs, or respect each other enough to allow for differences in these? Will you be able to allow each other the time and space to be individuals? If you’ve answered yes to most of these questions, you are most likely compatible and the age difference should not be an issue. As long as the both of you love each other, are willing to be tolerant and accepting when required, the relationship will have a good chance of working out.
