Or you could realize you're being ridiculous and ask this one out now. I'm betting that I'm not the only one who is giving you grief about this question. Go for it, you'll find it doesn't feel as weird as you think. Because the article, if I'm thinking of the same one you are, was about how awesome women in their 30s are, and how dumb it is that guys don't tend to date older women. A 20 year old and a 50 year old is totally creepy. Just noticed that 15 comments have been posted since I started writing. There's nothing wrong with dating an older woman.
Because, "An age and power differential is okay as long as it's the man in power"?
Is a 27 year old guy dating a 20 year old girl creepy?
