We are very happy and natural together when I let it flow. Years back, I dated a woman that was 12 years older than me.
We talk about a serious future together as we have very compatible life goals, but I worry him being with me is stopping him from experiencing other people and happiness in his life. It was a serious relationship which lasted just over 5 years.
So the ripe old age of 14 -- the age when you still have pimples, are as insecure as can be and are unlikely to get anything more than a kiss from a woman your own age -- is the only time when you can enjoy dating a woman your own age? Add seven to that, so you can date a 12-year-old -- an older woman"?
What about if your 10-year-old looks at you and says, "I'm ready to date, Dad"? There is so much a 12-year-old can teach a 10-year-old -- advanced coloring, advanced texting, and so many other important life skills.

Pay no attention to the ol’ elbow-jabbing, wink-wink idea that cougars* are “more likely to put out and pay for everything.” Meh, that may be a reason a naïve man attempts to score with an older lady, but it’s hardly the reason a smart man enters a relationship with one.
I would be afraid of taking her away from her youth. If he's ready and understands how you feel and you openly express that, I don't see why it would be a problem.
Having her lose the relationship experiences that we all have as we grow older. Incidentally, our relationship didn't end because of the age difference.
