I recently became friends with a 48 year old woman. I met her on a friends social media page and she is also a customer at the store I work at. Here’s the deal, we became friends about a month ago. Recently, she’s started to hit on me and I’ve been flirting back. She makes jokes about our age difference. She’s like my biggest fan. It’s crazy. Anyhow, would it hurt to go out with her? She is pretty and a very cool person. Side note, she is divorced and lives alone. Pretty much the only thing holding me back is age difference. She has children that are grown up. A couple years younger than me.
