What is most signficant, usually, is not the difference in calendar years, but the distance between you in behaviours and interests. It sounds as though you may share similar interests in movies, theatre, and so on, and that helps. Its hard for anyone else to guess how your parents might react to this news, and you know them best. Based on how they have reacted to your other friendships, how do you expect them to react ? At least by taking the initiative to raise the matter with them, calmly, and then give them a chance to meet the guy, you avoid the likelihood that they would eventuially find out anyway, and have the added concern that you had kept this secret from them.
