17 dating a 22 year old
and very little difference of a 37 yr old dating a 33 yr old. She's a teenager, your a legal (drinking age) adult.
This is one of those cases where I think age does matter. LOL 22 yrs old wanting to date a 17 yr old sounds like you don't want to grow up and date someone your own age.
Considering that I was almost done with college, it wasn't exactly the ideal situation.
4 year difference yes, but also consider that there is a huge difference of a 17 yr old dating a 13 yr old... LOL 22 yrs old wanting to date a 17 yr old sounds like you don't want to grow up and date someone your own age.
And I don't mean that in a bad way, but you can never judge til you are in someone else's shoes.
It depends on where you are in your life and what you want. where people assume a pervert is behind every tree. Please note: The suggestions and advice offered on this web site are opinions only and are not to be used in the place of professional psychological counseling or medical advice.
Then again, I wouldn't really feel the same way about an 18/22 year old.
17 is only a year younger and somehow makes it weird. I've been dating someone 5 years younger than me for 5 years now.
Maybe not fair, we don't know OP, but he's going to have to deal with that and accept that he will be seen as a creep in his and her social circles.
Where I work at Costco, the median age range is 18-30, and I swear all but maybe 3 girls there are pregnant or have a kid, heck theres one girl who just turned 21 and has TWO kids! I'm not sure if I just live in a bad city or that "normal" for people my age.
I made it quite clear to her that if we're gonna date I'm not having sex with her till shes 18 and if she likes me as much as she thinks shes does she'll wait, so far shes agreed to it.
In my opinion I'd rather be single than date someone who is either fresh out of high school or still in high school. When I was 21 there was a 17 year old girl I worked with who had a thing for me. And the only reason I even entertained the thought at all was because other women (especially ones my own age) wanted nothing to do with me. I've tried to date people my own age honestly, but the problem is, once you hit my age in your 20's, it is VERY difficult to find people that aren't pregnant or already have someone else's kid(S).
I know theres people that have done it and lived a decent life, but I rather not inherit all the drama that may come with it like baby daddy issues and such.
Yeah, I'm not necessarily really against this age difference, but when I was 22, I had absolutely no desire to date 17 year olds and didn't even cross my mind to think of them as dateable.
