There is a huge difference between 20 and 17 from a maturity point.A three year difference down the road is nothing,but at your ages it is big.2.However, generally speaking, a seventeen-year-old and a twenty-year-old are at different stages in life.In the United States, seventeen-year-olds usually live at home and are still in high school.I've pretty much made up my mind to ask her out unless I hear someone with a good reason not to, but I'm just wondering about some opinions.blueberry, all I can say is... The last thing I need are my testicles mounted on a trailor hitch. I'm looking for an actual relationship, not just to get laid.Most 17 year olds are obsessed with scoring and doing drugs nowadays.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. 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.Love is hard to find; no need to make it harder by setting a lot of silly rules about who is off-limits. Which was good, as they were a very close family, on her mom's side. But the age, when its fairly close, doesn't seem like it'd be a big deal.
I honestly am not so much looking for permission as I am curious about the thoughts of others. And if you had a daughter you might have a friggin clue, I dated a girl who was only a few months into being 17... I had made an exception in her case, because I had my own little rules for dating anyone more than a couple years younger than me. Her mother loved me, although it helped that her mom knew me. I'm well read, I keep up with the news, I'm active politically, I would rather watch a movie made 50 years before I was born than the latest torture-porn at the theatres.
Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing... There's this girl I work with, have for about 2 months, who I think is pretty awesome.
Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate. We get along well, have a lot in common, she's just cool and I think I have a shot. Mainly because there's too much drama, too many issues, and frankly, most of the time I have nothing in common with them.
You show a good level of maturity by even thinking this through the way you are.
You would be wise to make sure her parents know about you. This guy is 20 and is actually mature enough to want to do the right thing..you think he would have done that at 17?
