Is it okay for a 24-year-old guy to date an 18-year-old girl?
Okay, I'm asking this purely out of curiosity. I just wanna know what people think about this, hear different opinions. I don't actually plan on acting based on what people say.
I turned 24 yesterday and for the past year, I've been back in school. The people there are 18-19 year olds. Life in school has been pretty much the same every day. There are girls everywhere but I feel like I'm not allowed to talk to them or be interested in them, so I stay alone in my corner and never talk to anyone. It's pretty lonely. Nobody knows my age of course, I try to keep it a secret.
Sometimes I wanna talk to a girl, start something with her, but then I tell myself: "No, it's not right, she's too young". But then I wonder if doing that makes me miss out on life. Also, lately there's a girl sitting next to me in class and she's really nice to me. I don't actually think she has a crush on me or anything, but I'm always worried that she might find out my age and think differently of me. So, to keep that happening, I avoid getting into conversations with her, or anyone else.
Have I been doing the right thing?
