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?

8 years is quite a big age gap. With that being said though, its your choice if you want to have "fun" with this guy. Whatever you decide to do just make sure you make your intentions clear to him - that your just looking for some fun and nothing long term. Hope this helps

Outside the 1/2 age + 7 rule, plus he sounds like a scoundrel. Personally I would save yourself for a uni bonkfest with guys nearer your own age and life phase.

Age isnt a problem, but he is. You think you can deal with it, then you need to give it a go and learn from the experience.

This important equation defines the youngest age of person you should date. Half your own age + 7. It can of course be rearranged, if I could be bothered, to calculate the oldest person OP should date. Probably 24/25. But anyway he sounds like BAD NEWS.

Not so much the age gap, but more the fact you are still only doing a levels and he's a proper adult, and the fact people are telling you he is 'bad news'. I wouldnt go there.

I do not think so.
My parents met when my mum was 18 and my father 30.
(they had me 2 years later)
