I'll spare you guys my typical philosophical preface and cut to the chase.
I'm nearly 30, and have never dated a girl older than 20. As a non believer of commitment and long-term relationships, I usually don't tell girls my age, and likewise, they rarely ask (and simply assume I'm the same age they are). It helps that nearly every stranger says I look like an undergrad. I'm 6'1'', so it's obviously not a height thing.
While the general societal "norms" are of no concern to me (hence why I keep doing what I'm doing), sometimes I wonder what would happen if, say, one of her parents found out. Does it fall outside the scope of acceptability?
I bring this up here and now because I've been talking with a girl on and off for a month now. She showed me her instagram account yesterday, and I was able to get her last name and did a quick search. Found out her dad is senior exec (as in a Chief ___ Officer) of a large multinational financial services company. She just turned 18 and is starting her freshman year next month.
Normally this would be a non-issue. I'd do what needs to be done and move on (excuse the pun).
But to say I'm not (slightly) intimidated/hesitant would be untrue.
Most likely it'll be a non-issue. She always texts me saying how she "misses me", (keeping in mind she has never met me in person yet. But given my personality, this happens too often).
If a girl truly has feelings for a guy, then age is irrelevant(?)
Funny, this ended up being more a post of self-assurance than actual seeking of advice.
