18 and 17 year old dating
Of course according to the law it's ok, but I would try to stop my daughter (or my son) at any cost from getting into that sort of relationship. I'm now 22 and have been with my 34 year old partner for 3 years in May.
I'm really interested in her and really want to make a move and ask her on a date. We seem to flirt a lot making fun of each other and calling and texting each other a lot talking about life. She's loads of fun and she's also really mature for her age too. I've been in this situation before, but me being the girl.
I don't want to be seen as a perv who's lusting over teenagers. Is the fact that I find her a mix of smart, funny, cute and sexually attractive wrong? I started talking to this person online and we swapped numbers. We got quite close, and talked about being in a relationship but long story short we stopped talking, which I regret now but my phone broke so i've lost contact with him. There's a 10 year age gap between my boyfriend and me.
Call me silly, but I'm gonna be 25 soon so that will mean she's 8 years younger than me. We never met, but talked about it, but I'm a shy person so didn't really initiate it. If i was still talking to him now, i think we'd be in a relationship, which is 7/8years so. She's over the age of 16, if you really like her then why care what anyone else thinks? For all you know, she could be thinking the same thing.
Somehow I find a 46 year old with a 22 year old better than a 26 year old with an 18 year old.
If she's mature then it shouldn't matter, but in most cases I don't think it would be true.
My parents also married at similar ages and have been together (allegedly "happily") for more than 20 years. If she's mature then it shouldn't matter, but in most cases I don't think it would be true.
