24 year old a dating a 17 year old? Is it right? Watch
I don't want to be seen as a perv who's lusting over teenagers. Call me silly, but I'm gonna be 25 soon so that will mean she's 8 years younger than me. I really like her though. Is 17 when your 25 too young? Is the fact that I find her a mix of smart, funny, cute and sexually attractive wrong? I mean she's still in sixth form. I'm nearly leaving university.
Anyway, as you said she's mature, just like I was, so really it's up 2 both of you, plus she's over 16 so you wouldn't be in trouble or anything. Just talk about it and take it slow. I'd say go for it. If i was still talking to him now, i think we'd be in a relationship, which is 7/8years so. It's what you make of it. I wish you all the best.
She's over the age of 16, if you really like her then why care what anyone else thinks? If you don't go for it, you could be throwing away something pretty amazing.
I've been with my partner for 2 years now.
If it helps there's a 13 year age gap between my best friend's mum and her dad. Her mum is (or was?) in her late 30s when her dad was in his early 50s
I'm in an 10 year age gap relationship and have been for 7 years now. It has, honestly, been the best thing to happen in my life. It has never been an issue, and in fact, for me was an advantage in a lot of ways.
Be prepared for some mick-taking. That's inevitable. But, I've found it's mostly not malicious (friends usually tease about their friends' choice of partners-- heck I teased a mate for seeing a guy called Randalf.). But, if it is, tell them where to stick it. You are both adults and can do whatever and whomever you like.
my husband was born in November 1976
we've been together since July 2001
got married April 2005
we're still together, and pretty happy right at the moment.
You do the maths
Though most people that age are so incredibly annoying and immature there are exceptions so meh.
I think if you're both happy then what the hells wrong with it!!
Use Jet Li's marriage as inspiration. Jet Li had been divorced. When he met his new wife, he fell in love. But they didn't get married. They decided that if they truly loved each other, that they'd wait 10 years before getting married. He continued his acting career becoming the biggest star. 10 years later, they were still very much in love. They married, he took a break from acting and they've been living happily ever since.
