  • Kinda. Most of the time an 18 yo guy is not mature and they are mostly childish.

  • I wouldn't presume to call it "wrong" but I can't recall being attracted to any 18 year old boys when I was 25. Most of them act 2 years younger than their age anyway...

  • I guess if the 18 year old is very mature for his age and the 25 year old is sort of "young", they might get along. But, I wouldn't be dating an 18 year old guy if I was 25. It would be very odd. I don't know if there is a right or wrong ....just odd.

  • agreed^.
    big difference in maturity from 18 to 25, especially when the male is the younger.

  • At those ages, I don't think it is a healthy relationship. At 60 and 53, it might not be as big a gap. Women mature more quickly than men do anyway, and at this age, the maturity factor would be a huge problem.

  • Wrong - no. Strange would be more like it. Most 18 yr old guys are pretty immature. If they are fairly mature, it is all relative to their age and not to a 25 yr old.

    You are just in way different places in your lives. As a 25 yr old woman I had already traveled in Europe, Africa, Asia, graduated from college, and bought my first house. It's likely that an 18 yr old has done little of that.

  • Add ten years to both ages, and I wouldn't think twice about it, but 18-year-old boys are usually just big teenagers.

  • Well I don't think it is wrong necessarily, I mean, he is legal and all...I just worry about the maturity level. Most 18 year old boys that I have known aren't that mature yet.

  • No its not wrong to have a boy toy. But you have to be ready for what ever happen he is real young.
