If a 20 year old college guy meets a 17 year old high school girl and starts dating her would you call this cradle robbing or is it no bid deal? It is not so different from a 40 year old dating a 35 year old. I pretty sure I was dating a 17 year old when I was 20. Now I'm 23 and I would have no problem meeting someone who is 19.
I knew she was still in high school but I figured she was either 18 or close to it, but then she said she was just turning 17. I've never dated a girl younger than me even, but I really do like this girl. She's almost 3 years younger than me but she's not a little kid or anything either.The worst thing you could do would be to date her without THEIR approval. My daughter has always been more mature than her years, and back when she was 17, I cringed when I thought about her wasting her time and emotional energy on 17 year-old "gomers". Most 17 year old girls are about as mature as a 20 year old boy. I have a 20 year old sister and I've seen how it works.Apparently, so did SHE, since she didn't date the entire time she was in high school for that exact reason. To the parents out there that say they would not let there 17 year old daughter date a 20 year old boy. Lets just say YOU THINK you know everything that's happening. Do you think a 20 year old dating a 17 year old is wrong?I'd have assumed she was my age if I hadn't known she was still in High school and even knowing that, I assumed she was 18. I can not only find another such job at a moments notice, I've been seriously considering leaving anyway, because I'm moving across town and it seems silly to drive across town when there's so many similar jobs right by where I'm moving. I see nothing wrong with a 20-year-old guy with the maturity level of the Original Poster dating a 17-year-old girl. Remember: if she or they get upset at you and decide to press charges (whether anything happened between you two or not), you will be at their mercy.Of course, certain activities constitute statutory rape in certain places, and that can present a major problem. Two other comments: I see nothing wrong with dating someone you work with. None of them had a problem with me and her being together.
