It's rare, but as long as it's a happy and healthy relationship, that doesn't matter. I was 20 and my boyfriend was 27 when we first met - some people warned us that it would never last or commented that the age gap was too big, but two years later we're still together. Really, the only opinions that matter are the couples'.
However, 18 is barely legal. 😕 It's possible that someone his age would see you as a kid and/or wonder if you'd be ready not only for a serious relationship but for marriage and kids in a few years.1
