    Get some more life experience dating people closer to your age. You have your own interests which will be very different than those of a man ten years older than you and it would be better to decide who you are before dating someone who has lived more than 50% longer than you.

    Age differences are huge at first and become a smaller deal as you get older. This is mostly because the older you get the more independent and self-identified you become so that you don't identify yourself by being the older guy's girl. This doesn't happen in relationships with closer ages (or most of the time it doesnt) because you don't find yourself deferring to the older individual's experience and knowledge all the time.

    Well my opinion is that he maybe a little old for you right now. BUT.. if this is what you want, then you have to show him that you are mature enough to handle things. You can't be a jealous teenager, you have to be trusting and understand that guys need there space and have to have time to do there own thing. But also remember, he's of age to go and do what he wants and your not, which in turn may hurt the relationship. Good luck with it all! I hope you get what you want in life!

    What is "to handle a relationship?" Relationship just happens if you are with the right person.

    I think what you have is a age difference, you might know that you are but he looks at your age and things that you are too young to be serious.

    At your age you ahould be dating not in a relationship...

    relationships are complicated and hard to deal with at times so thats why he said that.

    in relationships there are commitments, in dating your not commited to anyone or anything.
