Is it okay for a 19 year old to date a 14 year old?

Anonymous
Okay so; I’m interested in this guy (we are both 16) and we’ve been talking for awhile. his best friend is a 14 year old girl who happens to be in a long term relationship with a 19 year old. I knew these people, but I never knew their ages until last night. They started dating when she was 13 and he was 18. My friend keeps assuring me he’s not some type of creep, but I feel like any grown man dating a middle schooler is definitely screwed up. Is it okay, Am I just overreacting? Should I just ignore it? should I try to do something? My best friend in middle school was groomed by someone the exact same age as this person. I guess it feels like you are mature at that age, but looking back we definitely weren’t, you go through so many changes and mature at such a rapid pace during this time. I just feel so... disgusted that he’d try to defend this man.
It’s fine, you’re overreacting.
