    There are no 'bad' age gaps. The only question that really matters here is whether you are going to seize what you desire or allow social conformity to deprive you and in my opinion, that's a bit sad.
    There is theoretically no difference between a 13 year old dating an 18 year old and an 18 year old dating a 23 year old according to your logic.

    Bit pathetic for a 23 year old man to go out with an 18 year old, I'd say.
    He should have his life sorted out by then, but evidently he doesnt - as instead he's dating teens..
    Jealous much??

    who cares?
    I went out with an only just 17 year old when I was 20 going on 21
    and I literally never even thought about our age difference and I don't think she did either - we were working at the same place
    so if I didn't even consider it with 3 or so years difference, why should you with 5? especially since you're both adults
    if it was something like 13 and 18 then I'd say that was a different consideration, although, again, people can do what they want

    I think that primarily go with what you feel comfortable with. As long as both are consenting adults where no abuse of trust or authority is made then there is no reason why there cant be a 20 year age gap. Its to do with being old enough to understand what you're getting yourself into and being old enough to consent to it. Some people are grossed out by larger age gaps than others because they are uncomfortable with it themselves - so do what you want as long as its legal and YOU want it!

    So my brother's best friend asked me out last week (we've liked each other for a while now) and I really really like him but he's 23 and I'm 18?

    Is that a bad age gap or is it ok?
    Surely it's your decision based on whether you like him or not? I don't really understand why you'd want random people on the internet to influence you either way.

    Not in the slightest, I have a beautiful girlfriend who I'm very happy with.
    I'm merely speaking the truth.
    I'm 19, and I know the exact direction I'm going in life, whereas he's dating kiddies utter manlet

    that ok, compared to my parents they have a 17 year age gap (40 and 23 when they married) and one of there friend had a huge age gap (18 and 43 when they met now there divorced with two kids but she 42 and he's 70)

    Come Rakas, what a damn cop-out. You know the law is fickle. Why is that particular course of action not one you recommend?

    So if it wasn't against the law and thus there were no judicial consequences of any sort for it...
