He's older than me...Opinions? Watch
So I've recently started seeing a guy, just casually, that I was friends with beforehand. He is 26 and I'm 18. If you knew someone who was doing that what would you think if they told you? (Okay you can hate on me but just looking for opinions and whether you think it would be different in certain situations?).
And before anyone asks or says, he's not a creep/paedo, we just decided to have some fun, I'm fairly experienced and he pushes my buttons.
I disagree with the idea that you going to university inevitably means that it won't last. I've been with my boyfriend for two years (when we met, I was 17 and he was 29) and now I'm at university and see no reason why we shouldn't continue happily together.
As for what people will say, the majority of people I told were surprised at first and, although they didn't say anything explicitly, I got the impression that they were thinking either "she's being naive and is going to get hurt" or "Wow, he must be a paedo/creep". Without fail, this stopped as soon as they met him and realised what a nice, normal guy he is and how well suited we are to each other.
