Do you think it is alright for a 28 year old male to date a nineteen year old female?

The female has not dated very much and is still very innocent about a lot of things in life. She works and attends college.

  • Depends on the individuals. They are both adults and in a few years the gap won't sound near a big.

  • Yep I think that is old enough for her to make the decision to date who she wants to.

  • It depends on his intentions and both their maturity.

  • No, they are too young to date that much of an age difference. Later in life age doesn't matter as much, but maturity is a big deal when younger.

  • She is legal. so yes it is ok. Will the relationship work out? Probably not.

  • Sure, I don't see an issue. She's legal, so it he. My in laws were nearly 15 years apart, doesn't mean the relationship couldn't or didn't work.

  • My sister is twenty, her boyfriend is 47. They like being together. Why should anyone else have a say? As long as he's not abusive...

  • They're both legal, so it's not wrong in any way. I wouldn't necessarily condone it, especially if it was my child, but a lot would depend on the individuals involved.
