Most Helpful Girl
Ehh, very sketchy. When I was 15-17, a lot of men 26-34 were interested in me, asked me on dates, (even after I told them my age) but when I turned 18, suddenly these same men were no longer interested in me, and literally I've had maybe 4 guys be interested in me since I turned 18. 3 of 4 were really no good guys, and the 4th is my boyfriend.
In general I don't believe a 17 year old has the maturity to be with a 30 year old, and the only real thing he could get from her is sex. As they are on a whole different level mentally, she likely hasn't graduated high school, and therefore most likely hasn't even started her career path, or decent money making. I am a firm believer that those under 25 who don't have a steady or decent career, pay their own rent and bills, and have had a chance to live in the world themselves, and pay for life themselves, really shouldn't date people more than 4-5 years older than them.
I think age difference relationships work out better and are more balanced when both people have their own money, career, goals, dreams, and have experienced life as an adult on their own for a bit.
I can't see a 17 year old and a 30 year old really connecting on any true level, and I feel the 30 year old would end up paying for everything, and the 17 year old would really not learn much until it was too late, and she is 20 and he leaves, and she has to support herself all the sudden.
