Yes it's extremely weird. But a lot of things are weird and harmless. This however is rarely one of those things. Generally speaking older guys (and women) who date people significantly younger than them do it because for some reason they won't or can't date someone their own age and I've never heard an excuse for that that didn't sound creepy, crazy, or cruel. But it's your life. In all honesty I think you already knew something was off before you even asked.
It is sorta bizarre, because in most cases where the girl is barely legal and the guy is like twice her age, the guy is usually just using her, cause let's be real, why would a 35 y/o man be genuinely interested in an 18 y/o girl? They're in completely different places in life. That being said, maybe your situation is different and it's actually sincere. As long as it's legal, it's fine.
No it's fine to me. Age is just a number, we can't help who we fall in love with so go for it as long as you're both happy that's all that matters in life is your private life and has fuck all to do with anyone else. If your family and friends say anything about it just tell them to pipe the fuck down.
If a 17 year old is old enough to be your dad then you must be living in a southern state. You are at 2 different points in your life though. That much of an age gap does not really have long term potential.
Yeah, it's a bit weird. Honestly, I would not trust a man's intentions who is that much older when you are that young... The age gap is less of a factor as you get older, but you're barely even a legal adult... it's creepy.
I would say yes, but not on your part. I know that many people think age is just a number; but, you are in two different generations. I'm 29 and there are some 35 year olds I can't relate to. Not only is there an age difference; but differences in social culture, intelligence, experience, and wisdom. I find it odd that a 35 year old man would want to date an 18 year old woman.
Yes it's weird
Not, it's not. The gap isn't even that big.
