So, i ask this question because I have an interesting experience. Feel free to judge but I dont feel like there's any reason to. Well, I am seventeen and i just got out of a relationship with a guy. He was eight years older than me. Yes, he's 25. Ha! So, I honestly only said yes to dating him because I was curious about his intentions.
I mean, that it peculiar, a grown man interested in a minor, knowing fully well of her age and fully well of the possible consequences of dating one. Before i continue, ill just let you know that i did not sleep with him and was not planning on doing so. Im a virgin, so i really want my first time to be with another virgin and someone im also in love with.
But anyways, i gave it chance but im glad the relationship is over. Looking back, I honestly feel like he's a pedophile. During a conversation, he jokingly said his dating range was 10 years+ but i dont feel like it was a joke. p. s: it was slightly long distance, i would only see him about once or twice a month in a public place, so i was completely safe.
Anyways, how do you feel about huge age gaps in relationships?

I think they don't matter so much but only once you've reached a certain base age.
Like a 30 year old and a 40 year old is not a big deal. Especially if the person in their 40's takes care of themselves. But a 19 year old with a 31 year old, it gets a little weird. There's a formula that says your range should be 1/2 your age, plus 7. So mine is 1/2*24+7=19. So 19 is the youngest I can date and it not be socially weird. And I guess 5 years older would be the same. So a 29 year old.2
