The show never specified how long Aiden has lived next door to Zoey's parents. We know that she remembers him as chunky, but that doesn't mean he was a toddler. She could have been talking about a chunky 10 year old kid. Zoey's age was confirmed to be 29 in this episode. The average student is 22/23 when they graduate from college and Aiden went traveling in Thailand after college for an unspecified time. The age gap between Zoey and Aiden is probably 6-7 years which means he was 11-12 when she left for college. It's entirely possible that Aiden's family moved into the house next door just before Zoey finished high school. But even if he moved when he was younger than that, his accent is still very plausible. The older you are when you move, the less likely it is that you will lose your accent. A kid in my class moved from South Africa to California in eighth grade. When I saw him at our high school reunion, he still had his South African accent. My classmate's sister moved here from Australia when she was in elementary school and she never lost her accent either. 2 Link to comment
