    I wouldn't say so. When I was 18, I had a 25 year old boyfriend. It's difficult, but not wrong or weird

    It's a bit weird, but you're an adult do what you want.

    I don't think it's that bad, but tbh if you're happy with that person then don't let it stop you from being with that person

    At 25 you should know your own mind, what you want and like/don't like in various areas that would affect how you interact with a mate. At 18 it's likely that they're still quite new to the complex emotions involved in a serious relationship.

    So a lot depends on the maturity of the 18-year-old - and what you both want from the relationship. I think it's too much tbh. There was a thread about a 25 / 37 relationship recently, which I'd say is actually less of an emotional age gap than 18 / 25, even if it's more of an actual age gap.

    I still considered myself a child at 18, but you'll never know if you don't try
