    I'm wondering if it beats the girl who said she was 16 dating a 33yo.

    Any advance on that bid?
    If your 16 you should be playing with colouring pencils.

    If you're happy. Who gives a ****?
    That advice is honestly really silly. Just bc someone may be happy, it doesn't mean that they should continue doing something which shouldn't be considered as acceptable.

    Well we haven't been seeing each other that long so I can't really answer that yet... and not yet.... and yes he does
    also he's divorced has two children, I haven't told my family or friends about him and I don't think he has either
    Surely you both realise that it's semi-wrong/something if you haven't told anyone about it? ^-^

    Tom Daley is 20 and is dating someone in his 40s. As long as he is not exploiting you in anyway, you feel comfortable and the relationship is consensual then who am I to judge? You will have to accept that you will face prejudice, unfortunately.

    If he makes you happy and he's not doing it just for kicks then go for it - age is just a number right. 😉 plus he has more experience than the guys your age

    Of course this doesn't make you a slut. But 42 years old? He's old enough to be your dad. And if a 42 year old man is dating an 18 year old, you really have to question - why me? And it's probably because he's using you to make himself feel that he's not getting old, he's still young, hip etc. And what's worse is that this man could end up being controlling and even abusive due to the age gap - he has a more sense of control and you'll depend on him more because he's the adult and you're still a little girl in his eyes.

    No one on here can say you shouldn't see this person, all they can do is warn you. But you need to tell your family and friends because your feelings might be overriding the true picture in this situation. They know you better than anyone else on here, they know what's best for you. Especially tell your parents, if they say it's wrong and you shouldn't see him - you should take that advice into high consideration.

    Of course people are gonna stare at you aha they think they're seeing a dad and daughter hanging out, but they soon realise it's a date

    With regards to yourself, don't let society constrain your choice of partner.

    With regards to him, good on him in the sense of nailing an 18 year old but it's kind of sad that he's not married at this point.

    Or he just genuinely likes her and sees her as the consenting adult that she is. A persons age has nothing to do with how abusive or controlling they might be. I could argue that it could be seen as the other way round. That because he is older and more controlled he has more experience in dealing with his emotion therefor less likely to strike out in anger etc. I'm not saying I think this is necessarily true, just that you can't make assumptions based on age.

    Personality and maturity isnt always due to age. Just because she is 18 doesn't mean that he sees her as being childish. And without knowing her as a person how can we know that she would put up with being controlled anyway.

    Personally I wouldn't date someone that much older but it does happen and if you make each other happy then that's all that matters. If your family loves you they should accept it wether they agree with it or not.
