Everybody I’ve dated has always been older than me, albeit, only by a few months. I’ve also always set my limit to a year older or younger than me and nothing else outside that.

Saturday though...my job had an open house for our summer camp and one of our classes is out sourced to a company and they brought somebody to help out. All I can say is ‘oh my god’, I spent the last hour of the open house talking to her. She’s incredibly smart, cool, down to earth, and gorgeous (think jessica alba like), but she’s 26. That’s a solid 5 years older than me with ease.

She gave me her number as a contact ‘just in case’ but I mean she’s a town over from me and as she said ‘spends too much time working and with school’. Do I break my rules and ask her out?

I should ask her out...
