I think we all have these sort of feeling towards someone. You just have to live it and surround yourself with that person as much as you can and have fun. Its always their parents who think its wierd!! :(

Being attracted to younger people can be very complicated in society today, as no doubt everyone here will agree. Being in a relationship with a younger person, be it a boy or girl, is not like a relationship with someone your own age, or older. Children have a different perspective on things, and may not see it as a relationship, but more as having an older special friend who they can trust, and depend upon. Generally, from my experience, if you treat them as real people, and show them the respect and caring you would give to anyone else who is close to you, you'll have a fruitful relationship with the younger person.
Also, sometimes it seems that no matter how hard we try to find, and have meaningful relationships with people, some just don't work out, and we have to expect it, and accept it. If you just be yourself around younger people, and honestly show interest in what they're doing, you are quite likely to kick off a friendship without even trying. What goes beyond that is a case by case situation.
Anyway, if you are trying too hard to form a relationship, try taking a break for a while, and take a walk along a beach, or do some hiking, or something to clear your mind, and think about things, and just let things run their course for a while. For who knows, maybe you may meet someone when you least expect it.
Best of luck.
