“Age is just a number” – at some point in your life you find yourself in a state where you seem to be drawn towards someone who makes you the happiest, but a petty issue such as age hinders you to move forward with that specific individual. If you’re telling me that you’ve never had a crush on that cute boy at your university who was a junior – then I’d doubt you big time, or if you let out a secret about how you were gaga over a chick who was about six years older than you, then you’re lying!
