Start new discussion Closed. Follow 1 I am just curious about your thoughts on this. As an extreme example, I have a cousin who is 22 and she's dating a guy who is 46 years old. They have their own place, get on great, and they've been together about 2 years. What do you think about 26 year old guy dating an 18 year old girl though?
Would it be strange or not? Dragonfly07 Follow 10 followers 17 badges Send a private message to Dragonfly Follow 2 Somehow I find a 46 year old with a 22 year old better than a 26 year old with an 18 year old. Mainly because I think 22 year olds are more grounded whereas 18 year olds are still slightly in the process of maturity development both physical and mental.

I wouldn't even say it's particularly unusual either.

Follow 7 Original post by WhiteWalker But if the 18 year old in question is very mature for her age, then surely that shouldn't matter? Original post by Katiekj25 Don't see a problem with it tbh. Dragonista Follow 0 followers 1 badge Send a private message to Dragonista. Follow 8 Non-issue for both situations. At 18 I was in a relationship with a 35 year old.
I'm now 22 and have been with my 34 year old partner for 3 years in May. We have our own place too and even moved to another country miles away together. Follow 9 Original post by Dragonfly07 If she's mature then it shouldn't matter, but in most cases I don't think it would be true. Of course according to the law it's ok, but I would try to stop my daughter or my son at any cost from getting into that sort of relationship. You do realise that as their daughter you're unlikely to actually find out what's going on behind the scence, or even under Im 18 hookup a 20 year old nose if you're used to it and think it's normal.
My parents also married at similar ages and have been together allegedly "happily" for more than 20 years. It turns out he was using her the whole time.
Follow 10 Original post by Iamyourfather You were 8 when she was born. Follow 11 Not a problem there, I was 19 and my first boyfriend 29 and we were together 5 years. We never felt it was weird and neither did all our mates. Posted from TSR Mobile.

Follow 12 I don't find it strange. My boyfriend is 27 and I'm 20, he'll be 28 while I'm still 20 which is the same as 18 and The age gap isn't noticeable at all to me - I prefer it. He's been through a lot and he's old enough to know what he wants and how he'll get there.
I wouldn't say that at 20 I'm naive either, I have always been the youngest and I am 2 years younger than the person closest in age to me on my course. Follow 13 Journeyzap Follow 1 follower 11 badges Send a private message to Journeyzap.

Follow 18 It's not the most common situation but I can't see anything wrong with that. When I first met my current bf three years ago I was 18 and he was almost 25 so we had a similar situation.
I think it depends on how mature the 18 years old girl or boy is and what are the real intentions of the 26 years old. Pastaferian Follow 4 followers 15 badges Send a private message to Pastaferian.
Follow 19 Follow 20 She'll want different things. She's still young and immature no matter how mature she thinks she is. She's just discovering her sexual power that she has over men. Most girls think they are more mature than lads their age when they aren't. Girls just have different opportunities and are different. By the time a girl is 19 everyone is drooling and wants her.
Shes considered a woman. Walk in a club and even if she is average or ugly she can pretty much get laid. The world is her oyster.
She however is still immature and young. Things get better for men as they get older.
