Im 16 dating 20 year old
Apparently, so did SHE, since she didn't date the entire time she was in high school for that exact reason. To the parents out there that say they would not let there 17 year old daughter date a 20 year old boy. Lets just say YOU THINK you know everything that's happening. when I was in High School I had next to nothing in common with them. Anyway, I also think you're maybe looking for an excuse, or somebody's permission. If she or her parents have a problem you'll find out soon enough, even if you don't ask them.
I agree that there's generally a big difference between 20 and 17, which is why generally I don't date younger women and I've made it a rule not to date high school girls. As for not dating in the work place, if I had some important job I would agree. But 2-3 years older for the guy is quite typical -- the average age of the male in first marriages is about 2 years older, so maybe you're over-thinking this.
Most 17 year olds are obsessed with scoring and doing drugs nowadays.
Love is hard to find; no need to make it harder by setting a lot of silly rules about who is off-limits. Which was good, as they were a very close family, on her mom's side. But the age, when its fairly close, doesn't seem like it'd be a big deal.
And to the weird guy who has a daughter and would like to kill the OP: Maybe I would feel differently if I had a daughter that age but I sure feel sorry for your daughter. I'd be respectful but I don't know if I'd not see her because of it. Naturally i want to protect her and if that make me weird then so be it. Oh, and just in response (kind of) to blueberryman's posts, about fathers and such, the girls dad had no problem with things either. I'm an almost 20 year old guy, I have a job, I have a car, I go to school, I don't touch drugs, I drink maybe three times a year and when I do, its in a friends basement where I know I'm staying for the night.
A three year difference down the road is nothing,but at your ages it is big.2.
You need to stay away from dating in the work place.
My Advice,..for someone your age,.stay away from teens. It is not a bad age gap..is when you are 21 or older and still dating high school aged kids that it becomes a problem..that will actually occur with you for a short time, too! I think generally, if you are a good guy and treat her with respect, it should not be a problem at all!
The age of consent is 16 in my state (Michigan) so not a problem there. I think it is honorable that you are concerned with it being an issue! But we have to get to a point where we TRUST our children's judgement as well..treat them as the young adults that they are becoming.
I knew she was still in high school but I figured she was either 18 or close to it, but then she said she was just turning 17. I've never dated a girl younger than me even, but I really do like this girl. She's almost 3 years younger than me but she's not a little kid or anything either.
I'm curious about the opinions of parents (would they have a problem with a 17 year old dating a 20 year old? Dude are you serious i have a 17 year old daughter i would beat you with a bat.
Look dude,.what berryman say's to heart,....because he see's and knows what a 20yr old wants to do to his daughter. He is scared that his daughter will meet a guy that was just like him,.... And dont patronize us buy trying to sugar coat your intentions with,..i have a good job,...i dont drink,..i dont do drugs,...i dont want to get laid,.... I do have a job, I don't drink much (I never said I don't at all) and I don't do drugs. However I have met someone who I REALLY like and would like to ask out, who I was unaware until just last night was more than a year or so younger than me. I have four kidlets..daughters, two sons..all are 20 are older.
you know it as well as us thats all BS,...because if it wasnt,..wouldnt be here right now looking for approval. If it happens it happens within a relationship, but I'm looking for an actual relationship, not someone who I can have sex with. I've never touched a drug, I've never even touched a cigarette. If one of my daughters had liked someone who was almost 20, when they were 17, I would have looked at the individual, more than their age.
And most of us know that denying a child the opportunity to make some sound choices on their own, only makes them rebellious! " But they seem to be a nice match, and honestly...Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
