A common rule of thumb when it comes to dating is that it’s OK to be interested in someone who is half your age, plus seven years.
However, the rise of the "older woman-younger man" relationship has loosened this relationship convention and instead celebrates the age-gap romance.
Also, many of the commonly held beliefs about dating a younger man or woman — for instance, that a junior partner may lack maturity — aren’t true, relationship expert and columnist April Masini told Fox News.

Don't feel volnerable just love him the best that you can because right now it seems like he makes you happy and you are afraid to lose him.
