Would you let your 16 year old daughter date an emotionally-sound, successful, trustworthy guy...who just happens to be 22?

Just wondering. I'm not in this situation. Think hypothetically people, hypothetically.

  • I would definitely not! I don't think a 22 year old can be "emotionally sound" AND be interested in a 16 year old. IMO...I think that there are to many differences in maturity and interests for it to be ok. 16 is a junior in high school, 22 is usually a college grad...completely different worlds.

  • Hate to be a buzz kill, but if he is all the thing you say, why does he want to cross the line with a 16 year-old?

  • If they are consenting adults, but in this case if the parent allows her then it really should not be anyone's business. There are mature 16 yr olds and there are shiny, clingy spoiled 16 yr olds . It depends on the chick.

  • I'm just interested to see if anyone will say "Yes! I'm fine with it! Yay!" Like I said, I am not in any sort of situation like this. It is completely made up. Hypothetical.

  • No, Why would a 22 year old want to date a child? And it is illegal.
