so Im 17 and Im dating a 22 year old guy. at first I'm very mature for my age. He thought I was 20 but I told him I was 17 and he was shocked, or not really shocked but he really thought I was older. He likes me a lot but somewhere, I know he's afraid of the reactions of his friends and family. they will probably say: what are you doing, she's only 17? but what do you guys think about it? he we both like each other then age shouldn't be a big problem right? He's not the kind of guy who wants sex by the way and it is legal to date older guys in our country.

Its not that bad. Take me for example, I was 17 when I met my now husband (1 yr has passed I'm now 18) he is now 33. When we were first talking I was afraid to take it any further. I was afraid of what people might think (she's 17 and he's 32= she's a gold digger, he's a rapist that just wants to sleep with me and leave me) but I ignored my fears and we started dating. When introduced him to my family my sisters didn't like him at all they thought he just wanted to take advantage of me but wait... things got worst one month into dating he went into depth about his profession (job) he turned out to be a doctor. He too confessed he was worried in the beginning before asking me to be with him due to the fact that I might of just been after his money. Basically, all these (beginning doubts) from both of us due to our age gap were inevitable we realized people were going to talk etc. Regardless of the situation. We've been married for almost a year and regardless of age difference we love each other and other opinions shouldn't matter if you both are seriously into each other.0
