  • I'm turning 18 next year and I can't ever imagine being ith someone who's only 5 years older than my father.

    You are both in very different stages of life, you have lots of experience, she hasn't.
    18 may be the legal age, but at 18 you haven't experienced what most people have int heir late 20's, let alone 30's. Jobs, a house, children, life itself. She's 18, she has other expectations in a relationship. It will most likely not succeed.
    You may both love eachother, no doubt that that is possible, but when you are in a relationships you'll notice that after a while, you aren't on the same level. It hurts but it is the truth.

    • *5 years younger excuse me.

    • Show All
    • Thank you! It's one of my favorite paintings :)

    • That is exactly what I was thinking except the difference for me is even less... my dad is 39

  • i´d say it´s not appropriate. at 36 you are presumably seatteled and experienced, whereas your life at 18 is quickly changing and inconsistent. those two phases don´t fit so well together. i don´t wan´t to paint it black but man that´s not very promising.

  • I've had that same exact age difference once.

    The guy turned out to be insane.

    I left him.

    Funny thing is he found me on facebook (keep in mind he never knew my last name, only my first) --I have no facebook pic up, didn't list my job, age, or the schools I attended.
    He pretty much messaged all the Stacy's in my area until I answered him.

    He's near 50 and obsessed STILL.

    This was just my experience.
    He really cared for me, although he had issues.

    Usually someone that much older than a woman, wants to take advantage of her.
    But I leave exceptions to that rule open,
    There are some who don't have harmful intentions and cannot help who they fall for.

  • That's too much of a gap for such a young person. Give her some time to figure out herself and the adult world first :/

  • I always use the +7 rule,
    you take the age of the older person 36 and divide it in two, so you'll get 18 and then you add seven, so I would usually say 25 is a good age,
    but it doesn't always work of course, and hey it's none of my business after all

  • I would think it's really uncommon. Physically, it must be pretty simple but the relationship side must be be complicated. There would be a huge maturity difference

  • If the older person were in their 20s instead of late 30s, then there wouldn't be that much of an issue.

    Why the hell is a 36 year old even considering a relationship with an 18 year old?

  • I love how the majority of guys consider it alright. *sarcasm*
    Anyway, there is a huge difference between them in life-experience. The girl is not an adult yet, she has much growing to do, she has many things to experience.
    The 36 year old is probably a guy taking advantage of her for her youth and beauty.
    I consider it wrong and immoral.

  • I was 18 once (in ye olde times when dinosaurs were walking the Earth!) and I might have desired a 36 yo woman, yes. Desired, not dated.

    I was 36 too and yes, 18 yr olds were nice to look at but even just talking was a tad difficult. Dating? NO WAY!

  • In germany as soon as you get 18 you're allowed to date anyone (but children.. thats kinda obvious), you can Drink what you want, go to any club you want. With 18 your basically free as long as you dont hurt someone else. Or take their freedom away with your way of living freedom.

  • It's legal
    I mean j think for a couple of dates yeah why not
    But for the most part I think the age difference might cause problems in a longer serious relationship

  • Nothing wrong actually as long as it's legal. However, I think there's definitely going to be huge gap between mentality, approach to different things etc. Probably not mature enough for long term. Not just dating but in other ways too. I mean that's gap of a whole generation. Still it can work... who knows ;)

  • I don't have a problem with age gaps - you're both adults.
    But I'd expect that she's too young to have realistic relationship expectations, and that you'll probably have way too different views on the future, to have a successful LTR.
