    I am a 23 year old female, would it be okay for a 23 year old girl to date an 18 year old lad?

    Thoughts on this please...

    Nothing wrong as such, but you both may want different things in the relationship :yep:

    Exactly this.

    It depends on the guy really as it seems rather stereotypical but guys 'mature' at a later age than girls in relationship aims. Regardless if you like the guy and bear this is mind, go for it!

    Of course it's fine.
    Same if a 23 year old guy hooked up with a 18 year old lassie

    I'm 22 and my boyfriend is 35. I have absolutely NO problem with this, and my family and friends respect my decision because I'm aware of the fact that we're going to run in to issues due to the age difference- like you might very well. We're in different stages of our lives and while he wants to settle down, I just want to get out and travel and have fun. The only way to make things work is compromising with one another.

    18 year old "lad". Really tacky IMHO. But do whatever you want.

    I just thought it was more acceptable for the male to be older than the other way round
