Do you think its wrong for a 38 year old woman to date a eighteen year old man?

If you like someone,should you let age stop you from wanting to date that person ,if say their age is eighteen?

  • Not wrong - they are both of legal age. Creepy - yes

  • he is of age to consent so...YOU GO GIRL!! lol. but be prepared for what dating a much younger man is going to be like. for ex. we already know that men act like kids... but it wasnt that long ago that your 18 yr old was a kid. will he be ready for a serious relationship-if thats what you are looking for. will he be ready to be a parent type figure? will it be like raising another kid. these are all questions that maybe you should ask yourself. but if you wanna do it-i say have fun. NO JUDGEMENT HERE LOL

  • It seems like in most instance that type situation would mostly be about sex or control, which I'd have to say is wrong. If there is some other reason that I am missing, I might reconsider my answer.

  • Nope, both legal adults and you cannot help who you fall in love with. A lot of times the relationships with large age gaps work better anyways at least in my observance of other couples in this circumstance.

  • He's legal. You might get comments or stares. But who cares.

  • Well the lady across the street from us was 39 now 40. And is dating a 19. He was 18 at the time. And they have a baby. She already has a 16,13,10 year old. It was creepy at first. But they are nice.
