Dating a 22 year old
Using Sua Sponte's Rule of Seven (and he's a lawyer so you KNOW it's true) you figure out if a person is old enough for you by taking your age, dividing it by two, and adding seven. We'd both been previously married, both had children and were both the wronged parties in the break ups of our marriages. (Cough..lesbian...cough, cough) It was fine for awhile. She was really, really hot, though, so I had to at least see what she was like. And I did not even come close to breaking any laws in the whole process.
so, 32/2 = 16 and 16 7 = 23 so she's too young for you. I was initially concerned about the age difference but it has rarely been an issue.

So my question is, do any of you have any experience with relationships like this one? Do I have to worry about anything as time progresses?
If you do be ready for a major difference in maturity levels. But whether it works out or not, you can gain valuable experience from every relationship. Don't worry that small-minded busybodies will think it's creepy, it's none of their business anyway. I say: "Go for it." Life is hard enough without these ridiculous arbitrary restrictions on love.
I am 30 years old and female and I dated a 20 year old guy (at my college guys my age are slim pickings and/or have major issues in life) and there was a world of difference. If she's of majority age, if you like her, and if she likes you, then you should go out together.
What everybody else said - there's no legal reason why not...
..be warned, there's a little more potential for punctured ego because there's just a little more chance that instead of 'Ummm...
