Mind The Age Gap2 of 7
Yes, you're younger than he is. He knows it; you know it. So if you're feeling self-conscious about it, address the issue directly. If he likes you, he won't mind. If he's hung up on it, then he's not the right guy for you.
Be Yourself3 of 7
As you accumulate years, you get to know yourself better and get more comfortable in your own skin. He's probably past the insecure game-playing phase that people go through to protect their delicate, young egos. No need to overthink it too much‚ just talk to him like he's a regular guy — not an Older Man — and you'll do great.
Own Your Age4 of 7
There's no need to pretend to know about things you don't: He's not expecting you to remember the '70s or to have experience raising kids or paying a mortgage. If you feel out of your element, say so. If you don't want to say so, ask him questions. You can't go wrong asking people about themselves — especially men.

And take the advice seriously. He'll be flattered that you want his guidance, and he has a lot more life experience than you, so he probably knows what he's talking about.
