let me preface this by saying that I have never in my life had sex with or dated a girl who was any more than a few months younger than me...most of my girlfriends and fuckbuddies have been at least a year older than me...so this is foreign and decidedly uncomfortable territory for me. i met a girl at one of my jobs and after some time working together she and I went out to dinner - her idea was that it was a date, my thought was that she was very attractive, and if she had not told me her age i would not have ever guessed that she was under 21, much less 18... we've hung out a few times since then, and it's incredible how comfortable we seem to be around one another for how little time we've known each other... for a whole lot of reasons, I've come to the conclusion that she is as close to a truly good person as I could ever ask to meet in any capacity, romantic or otherwise. i had previously dismissed in my mind this girl and it turns out that she is smart, beautiful, naturally funny, and truly a blast to be around, without any pretense or hang-ups that I can pick out whatsoever ... but I feel like a fucking pedo-bear even though most people that i've asked about it say that so long as the maturity levels match up pretty well, it's worth a shot...I'm not thoroughly convinced. I have not had sex with the girl -yet - which to be fair was because I didn't understand my state's laws regarding JB until yesterday i think for the time being i've had my fill of fuck buddies, hookups at parties, etc. still have plenty of time for that later on if it turns out i can't handle a real relationship again as ridiculous as it might sound, at this point after searching so exhaustingly for a girl like this in my own "age bracket," I can't believe that the only issue in this entire scenario is my OWN hang-up on this age thing, which might not even be that big of a deal at all so what's the deal? Is this shit just creepy or should i do what i feel is right and ignore the fact that she's so much younger?
