Now we all know a 30 year old that targets 18 year olds is a bit strange but what about 25? Id class 18 as a kid and 25 as an adult, albeit a young adult. Hence, there is a very high percentage of mid-twenties serious people, having their hearts broken by fickle and flash-changing teens.
There are also lots of destructive "lessons" being taught to the teens, by self-deluding twenty-etceteras.
In the main, I would say that mid twenties trying to mix with late teens, is the worst age gap.
Just a few years later, young twenties with late twenties and beyond, the problems all but asked, and now you don't like what you heard :)ok, seriously, the question is, "strange to whom? Choose a peer, an equal, someone of similar maturity and life-experience.
There are legal considerations of course--for example, in some states it is actually statutory rape for even an 18-year-old to have sex with a 17-year-old.
But beyond the law of the land--the law in every household varies.
IMO, there are some ages where say, a four year spread is huge, versus other times in life when four years makes little difference. When you talk to teen girls, many times you'll hear about the "immaturity" of guys their age.This may be true--boys tend to mature slower than girls--but does that make it okay for teenage girls to see older guys?Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc. Or you click on a cute picture, read their profile, and think you have a lot in common and they happen to be 18? So buckaroo, not in the eyes of the law is it "too old".Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing... Now think what you were doing and what you were "thinking" and "planning" when YOU were 18. However your interest in an 18 year old at this point raises a hell of a lot more questions than it answers, just based on some of the other stuff you said. This is referring to the last 2 posters but why do I always seem to get the jerks on my posts? Some of these forum folks are just dying to criticize someone. No one cares about your unsolicited assessment of character The jerks will show up on any post. College guys at 25 are too old for high school gals of any age.Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate. Id say its not illegal, its not immoral and if the 18 year old is mature for her age then its ok. I bet you jokers spend all day waiting for the chance to insult someones character. You think they pick on you, because you don't read enough of the rest of the forums. A few women are fairly mature at 18, but almost ALL of them THINK they are "more mature than their peers", so you can't go by what they say, and usually not by how they act. One of the biggest problems with that particular age gap, is that lots of mid-twenties people are ready to get serious, both emotionally, and practically.So I had a birthday today and I realized I'm still a young adult but I'm really on the verge of just what I would call an "adult". But.....there is a world of difference betwenn 18 and 25. But almost no 18 year olds are even remotely ready, again, even though most of them think they are.
