    Should I date a retail staff ?

    So a retail staff in the nearby local store seems to be interested in me. At first, it was just a small chat after I helped her last 2 weeks. Since then, she started to make small talk and smile to me whenever we have a chance. We even walked together and had a talk on the street for hours as we met one day. She is just so sweet and cute. I discovered that she’s currently single. We share same interests in travelling, art, and the taste of music. However, she is 4 years older than me (I’m 21,student. She’s 25, with a job).

    Sadly I am going to move to Belgium in next 3 months. And personally, I have never dated anyone older than me before. Therefore I don’t really know how things will work out eventually.

    Do you think that I should date her, despite many gaps ?

    There is nothing wrong with a woman a few years older than you. 4 years is no big thing, by any means. You can carry that with you for the future.

    But, the sad thing is that you are going to break her heart if you date, and she falls for you, and you move away so soon. She is not going to drop her life (job, friends, family) and come with you, like in a movie, after knowing you for a month or two.

    Are you moving to Belgium permanently? If yes, don’t hurt her. If no, and you’ll be back in a year, stay in touch with her. Perhaps become friends while you can. Go out for lunch or coffee — no dinners, no strolls along the river — and talk. Tell her that you are moving to Belgium. Ask her to stay in touch with you. Tell her when you are coming back, if that’s an option. She’ll react the way it’s meant to be.

    But yeah, no problem with women being slightly older. That’s nothing. You’re both adults, she can be more mature with you (but be sure to be mature back!).
