and that age is legal where I'm from. I want honest answers please. Do yall think the only issue would be the maturity level. What would people say like his friends or my friends.

I think a lot of people are going to think bad things and maybe even say bad things, but if you both really like each other then I don't think it's a big deal. Just be prepared for the possibility that your friends and family (and his too) might give you a lot of grief over it. Just after I turned 18 I started dating this guy. I knew he was older because he was a grad student but I thought he was 23 or 24. We had been going out a little while when he asked me to come with him to the DMV so he could register his car. That's when I saw his license and found out that he was 29! It totally freaked me out at first but then I realized he was still the same guy that I started seeing and THOUGHT was younger. Nothing had REALLY changed. So we kept seeing each other. We only ever once had an issue after that. We had a little pregnancy scare and here I was 18 and thinking "OH HELL NO!" and he was like, "Well I'm almost 30, maybe it's about time I settled down. We could get married and I could get a job." I was NOWHERE near ready for that stuff and it totally freaked me out when he started talking like that. Luckily I wasn't pregnant and he laid off all the 'settle down' talk. That's the only other problem I see. The whole 'being in different places in your lives' thing. But the age difference is not quite as drastic so hopefully won't be as much of an issue.0
