Not really weird as it is wrong. This does happen because the younger one is- to have an adult take a liking to you makes that younger person feel all grown up and macho.
The one problem here is why can't this 23 year old find someone in his own age group? Unfortunately this raises all sorts of red flags in that this guy may be a Pedophile who prays on young kids so - as youre still young and naive, please be careful and do NOT be in a hurry to meet this guy at all and find someone your own age . Good luck
