    No it's not too big of a gap. The fact that he has a dodgy background is more concerning than the age.

    Obviously not, however two adults is quite clearly a completely different thing

    I think the main issue between 18 and 26 is that you should be in completely different stages of your lives. He should be looking into settling down, forging a career, thinking about getting on the property ladder, etc... And well, you should just be starting out.

    At the end of the day though, it's perfectly legal and if it makes you both happy, who is any else to judge? Although i do agree with those who has voiced concerns about his dodgey past.

    my parents gap is 17 years (43 and 60) and my mother's friends gap was 28 years (42 and 70)
    42 and 70?
    Imagine being 50 and your partner being on deaths door, beyond idiotic

    I'm talking 18 year old girl, finishing A-Levels, relatively intelligent just of a long term relationship and just wanting some fun experiences before going to uni.
    26 year old guy, kind of bad news in terms of his history (in terms of relationships/with the law), father, but so damn hot.
    I have been warned that he is bad news and that he is too old, but I don't want a relationship. What do you think I should do?
    The "history" he has with the law and relationships should be enough to make you steer clear, if you have any sense that is.

    Also;

    Age gap is ridiculous.
    He's 26, and should be getting his life together - whereas he's on the hunt for kiddies still in secondary school, sounds like a pathetic POS if you ask me.

    Probably not worth risking - even for a chocolate biscuit.

    The age thing doesn't concern me at all, it's more what you said about his history and the fact he's a dad, that would put me off. You're too young for all that baggage! You said he's really hot, but is he nice? Does he treat you well? If all you want is a bit of fun, then go for it, but if you get attached and fall for him and he hurts you then you could end up in a right pickle. Tread carefully.

    Lol bit harsh! Anyway these days, 70 isn't on deaths door at all, providing you're in relatively good health!

    Age gap doesn't matter... but be weary of him because he does sound a little dodgy... don't let him manipulate you in any way or get you to rush into anything. Treat him mean, keep him keen if he wants more then one thing he will stick around!!
