Is it OK for someone who is 22 to date an 18 year old?

people say that its wrong to date people who are a certain number of years apart. say 4. why? My grandpa fought Koreans while my grandma was 3 years old.

18 and 22 is fine, but 15 and 19 is NOT! What part of that are you still not getting?

Okay now... Please tell me you STILL want advice on you and this girl???? Really???? 22 and 18 are normal and acceptable. Your situation will not be normal or acceptable for another 4 yrs.

@ Jarhead. I remained sympathetic to your feelings and at one point I was confident in your replies but you are missing the point everyone is trying to express. The question you asked this time, you already knew the answer to which leaves me to believe you knew the answer when you asked the last question. Appears now you are " fishing" for answers, hoping to win an arguement you are having within yourself (its called a conscious) and you should listen to it.

I just want to know what constitutes appropriate age. legalities are put into place for certain reasons im sure, but i want to know why people think its morally unacceptable to help out a teen mother who is a good friend and fairly attractive, by giving her a father figure for her child that she will be able to depend on.

Laws for this are made to protect the children, which is what she is. The reason a law had to be made is because there were too many immature children who thought for whatever reason that having sex with adults was acceptable AND way too many adults who were ready and eager to be the one to help them do this.

hey just so you know and like i answered in your other question, Love is hard to control and hard to snap out of but as an adult you got to make the right choice here and I usually suggest the opposite of this but Use your head, not your heart for this one...

depends on the person. if you have nothing in common because of the age difference, it won't work out. You may be at different stages in life but everyone is different.

Actually its not only because before he (a 19 yr old man) asked this question he asked if it was okay for a 19 yr old to date a 14 girl that had a baby. We all commented and said no way is this okay and he argued that it wasnt that big of an age gap. Only after all of our comments, he asked this one trying to justify the age difference. Not acceptable at all. Just giving you the heads up

As long as everyone involved is 18, it doesn't matter how far apart your ages are.

if shes 18 its all good, if shes 14 however then its not good at all and you could be classed as a pedophile sent to prison and have a sex offender stamp on you for life.
