What are your opinions on this relationship? Would you be worried if this was someone you knew?
Although legal, does not make it morally right.
What does a 30 year old man have in common with a young girl who's still in school and just only finished her gcse's?
I would be worried yes :/
To be honest, people can have relationships with whoever they want, regardless of age. They're both old enough to do whatever they want, whilst one may suspect the 30 year old I'd say take it with a pinch of salt. If you see said person changing all of a sudden, not going out as much, maybe visible marks on her or any sort of signs that you can make out that seem slightly weird,then you can be worried.
If I didn't see the signs though, personally I'd just ask the girl about it see what she thinks. If I did see a sign though, then yeah I'd get worried 100%.
Depends in the people. Its less the 13 year age gap and more the fact of the proportional gap.
He should ne mayure and is more worldly wise, she is still finding her feet and may be naive. That makes her vulnerable, but she is free to choose.
Tbj we dont really know anything about either other than their age.
Would the responses be different if it was a 17 year old boy and a 30 year old woman, versus the opposite though?
Personally I guess it would for me, for some reason seems less likely that the 30 year old woman is going to prey on the young man, vs the original situation.
Totally different stages in life. I would question what a 33 year old would be doing with a 17 year old? I would be worried, the maturity and income difference is going to result in a power imbalance.
