If the guy pressures you for sex. I wonder how the law would see it. At your age, I wouldn't suggest you exceed a two to three year difference if you want a relationship of equals. Statutory rape is sex by or with someone that's under the age of consent. Our lifestyles would just have been too different at that point. I wont be even thinking about that until I am 27 or 28.
I don't think it's that big of an age gap as long as he's not some creep who dates preys on only young teenagers. I think the age difference is fine. Personally, 18 and 23 sound fine to me. But almost no 18 year olds are even remotely ready, again, even though most of them think they are. I don't think anyone should ever take advantage of the fact that teens do really immature things and can easily be dumped by adults.
The relationship is now in its death throes, but we never really noticed the age difference. But the age difference is probably worse for the older partner, as they're probably getting more serious and ready to settle down, while a teenager or a young 20-something is still curious to sample what's out there. Justia Ask a Lawyer is a forum for consumers to get answers to basic legal questions. Major girl in my life had a 31 year old tattoo artist and heroin user-provider pick her up at home when she was 14 --- a while later she found out her dad's blood pressure was about 220. But since she was willing and it wasn't technically rape, they call it statutory rape. But statutory rape has nothing to do with the age of the older person. However, it gets to be a legal problem if 'dating' means 'having sexual relations.

Speaking from experience, I can say that it can work. If a man or woman will not go past that, then there is not love no matter his age. Just make yourself available to her as a confidante and a resource as she goes through this relationship. College guys at 25 are too old for high school gals of any age.
Didn't know if maybe that was the reason you asked to see if other people differed from what maybe a parent said. That's also a sex offense when he's 18 and you are 15. From my personal experience, women in our age group pay attention to guys way older than us for the first 30 years of our life, so perhaps a guy in his late 20s just wants the chick who pays attention to them in return. But mainly because women in my age group such as yourself are all dating 40 year olds. Hmmm, so the 40 year old man I have a date with tomorrow night is too old for me.
And that definitely gets better with time. So how can you shame men 23-29 for dating women 19-23? He had recently ended a 18 year marriage prior to dating his seasoned gal. The maturity comes from experience and the environment, as long as he is of a sound mind, there is really no concern as to why you are worried about this. The women who are at the age 23-29 usually are dating men 30+. So my question is, me who just turned 23 is that an objectionable thing to date an 18 year old girl who is mature enough to be a 20 or 21 year old? My 23 yr old self could run circles around my 18 year old self and the girls I were around that age too. So I usually like to stay between a 22 to 24 bracket, though if I click with a girl age wont matter much. There is a 6 year age difference, which isn't much in these terms, and it's not like being a year older 18 is suddenly gonna mature somebody to the point where they can now face the reality of dating and sex and etc.
I could go on and on, but you get the idea; pretty, funny, smart and interested in you are all great, but that experience gap is a bigger obstacle than you may imagine at first look. After all, if you're older you had a head start. Or I could date 3 x 18 year olds at the same time - Is that how it works? But I'm a female so it's a bit different for me. If you are on the same wave length then it might be ok. They feel like she's going to use me and shes too old for me but they haven't met her yet. You know, date a few years, get married, and have kids.

I remember when I was 22 and my gf was 19, how her emotional immaturity and lack of life experience really affected our relationship. All she could offer was companionship. Some guys are not all that mature by 25. You will get jealous when you will feel that your man can be interested in someone younger. She was physically unable to do these things with him. This is a very difficult case to call.
It's a senior in highschool with a sophmore, maybe even a junior. Theyve had a year to get that newness of clubbing and stuff out of their system. Don't let this hero take advantage of you! She broke it off because she had guilt about taking away from a young mans life. She brought normal back into his life. As far as being inappropriate, I think it depends on the state of mind that each of you are in.

I have just felt that I've gotten more grounded with who I am within the past 3 years! I keep it a secret cause a few don't like to be told anything restrictionist, no matter how weird, bad-apple, appalling or bad for grandpa. I'd question my subconscious reasons for wanting so young a partner someone to control? Is 25 too old to date an 18 year old? I bet you jokers spend all day waiting for the chance to insult someones character.
