I'm presuming that you're at least 18 years old?
I think the dishonesty is your problem. When I was 30 I met a girl who was 20 and we had a good relationship in the beginning, but it had problems. It was a long distance relationship. She told me she was taking classes "at the college", so I presumed she was a college student. It turned out the "classes" were for her GED because she dropped out of high school, and they were conveniently held on a college campus so she could say that without "lying". When I finally broke up with her my main reason was that she always bent the truth to suit her needs.
When you meet people under false pretenses you put yourself in a bind. I would just be honest with him and let the chips fall where they may. Once you get into your college years an 8 year difference is no big deal anymore.

Like Abraham Lincoln once said, "You can't believe everything you read on the Internet."
