A 14 year old and an 18 year old can't be together because a 14 year old is still a child. However, a 21 year old and a 25 year old can be together because both of them are adults. So the issue here is not the age difference, but the ages of the involved parties.
There are certain, very specific things that a 14 year old brain cannot understand. Logical principles as well as physical changes which people are only able to fully comprehend after a brain has developed its neural network to the point of adulthood are what separate the adult mind and body from both the adolescent and even, to some extent, the senile.
I find it more curious that the mentally infirm are able to hook up. It's the same principle. People in these states are easily taken advantage of, and the person who is being taken advantage of may never know or understand the facts of what is actually occurring.
It's because here they consider 18 an adult and 14 a child, Eh I don't think age is a big problem, I actually have a few friends who are 14, or 15 that are with someone who is an "adult" it's working out fine for them. The only thing is you have to really know who your with, just make sure he's not worried about only sex. And don't let people control your relationship, if you love him, then don't worry about the age.. (=

There's a much greater difference between a 14-year-old and an 18-year-old than there is between a 21-year-old and a 25-year-old. The very fact that you have to ask this question answers the question itself.
The human brain doesn't even finish developing until a person's in their mid-20's. Being 14, you might be a really smart girl, but physically your brain hasn't reached the level of maturity that his has. I dont mean it as an insult. But basically, people don't want you to be with him because he's more mature and knows more about the world and how to get what he wants out of it, and people are afraid he'll take advantage of you or get you into something you're not ready for. Those things may or may not be true, but it's definitely something that could happen.
Its this thing called MATURITY. A fourteen year old is a child and still quite immature despite what they like to think. Many eightteen year olds are not fully mature either, esp boys. Still the maturity difference between 14 and 18 is HUGE!!!! A child dating a budding adult is a bad situation, which is why its ILLEGAL at least in the US.
By 21, and certainly by 25, brains, bodies and emotions have, in general, matured to adult levels so each person is suppisedly making mature, well thought out, well informed adult decisions. Something all 14 year olds and many 18 year olds are incapable of.
Would you date a ten year old it's the same age difference no because to you you consider a ten year old a kid well any mature and not some kind of baby lover would consider you a kid too sorry this eighteen year old is a freak for wanting to be with a fourteen year old and I bet your a virgin once your not you won't be that attractive to him, see some swine feel taking a girl's virginity is trophy to get and brag about and if your not a virgin at fourteen he just thinks your an easy piece. Eighteen year old do not want serious relationships with people under six or seventeen because they put restrictions on thier ability to experience things because the other is not old enough and fourteen year olds live in a completely different world than eighteen year olds.
