    i just wanted to know people's opinions on a 19 year old female dating a 26 year old guy? I really like this guy at my work who works in a different department but like i said he's 26. I had no idea at first because he's really young looking and so easy to get along with i thought he was 21/22. not entirely sure if he likes me back but we get on really well and joke around a lot. i'm not saying that we will end up dating but i do like him and idk whether it's a huge waste of my time?

    It's unlikely that you'll be on the same page because he's a good 7 years older. If anything he might think that you're too young.

    However, there's only one way to find out: ask him

    Go for it if he does like you, its not a massive age gap especially if you have a future, 7 years wouldnt be anything. Its the person not the age and tbh he isnt even that old

    My girlfriend is 10 years older than me and it's quite OK...

    You're both working adults. Worst-case scenario, things could end up becoming awkward in the workplace if it doesn't turn out well.

    Keep in mind that this may happen regardless of whether you two end up dating or not (think long-term).

    It's not about the age gap in your particular situation, there are many other factors to consider.
