Is 18 too young for online dating
By the way, I don't think it's old fashioned to think the way you do -- like I said, if I were her dad, I'd be very concerned.
But as for what I want with her -- I want to date her, that's all I know.
I'm 24 years old, and I'm really interested in this 18 year old girl. (We worked at the same place, and we both go to the same university. Do what you will - but I doubt it'd work out, sorry to say.
If I knew for sure I'd have a shot to date her 5 years from now, as the gap started to get less significant, I think I could wait, but who knows what'll happen?
I do believe that it has less to do with your age and more to do with what point of your life you're at.
Examples being, if you were both students, she was 18 and first year college and even if you were 26 on your first of your masters at the university, I'd say it would be alright seeing as you can relate to the point in life you're both at and work together from there, learn from each other and grow as people. My daughter is 20, in University studying to become an RN.
No regrets, and to this day I feel enriched by all that we learned and felt together, and I'm sure he does too.
Hope you have somewhere remotely near as good an experience!
