    Haha thanks, it's just that i've a younger sister the same age also, so that is kind of stuck in my head, would i want someone my age dating her, but will see how it plays out! Cheers
    And if a nice guy like you who really cared about your sister wanted to date her, and she really liked him too, would you really have a problem with it?

    Sometimes I wonder what I would think if I had a 17 year old daughter and she wanted to date a 29 year old, and my initial reaction is "No way!!" but provided they were compatible and he treated her properly, then I don't think age really has anything to do with it.

    As the title says, I'm 23 and shes 18. However in 3 months i turn 24 and she won't be 19 for around 6 months after that.

    So therefore, 24 yr old going out with an 18 yr old? Would it be weird?

    I mean, she's mature enough and we get on but i just can't help thinking off an age gap but once she would turn 19/20 i'm sure i wouldn't think off it at all.... Any thoughts??
    Nothing wrong with that. You're both adults. It's up to the both of you to consider the relationship, i.e. study/work situations.

    You're cheerful, aren't you? What if I get hit by a bus in ten years' time and he lives until he's 90?

    Anyway, what is the point in me living miserably without him because he might die before me?

    What's wrong with being happy with him for as long as I can? I fully intend to enjoy several decades with him by my side.

    nothing wrong with it from a moral perspective but dont put too much stock into the relationship as at that age she might want to do some "exploring" especially if she hasn't completed her studies yet.
