How young is too young for a very young adult woman to have a sexual relationship with a 27 year old man?

While by law (in the US at least), the minimum legal consenting age is 18, society looks at age gaps as big as even 7 years as awkward or a supposed red flag that a man has issues if he dates a woman 7-8 years younger.
As long as the very young adult woman is actually of minimum legal age (18 years old), then it shouldn't be an issue.

  • The unofficial rule for the minimum age one should be dating is "half your age plus seven." Going by that social rule, a 27 year old should not be with any girl below the age of 20 (meaning 18 and 19). So I'll vote for Option C.

    Yes, legally, 18 is the age of consent in most places, but I still find that to be creepy because mentally, a LOT of 18 year olds are still immature nowadays and act like bratty teenagers, and many are even still in high school. The idea of flirting with an 18 year old creeps me out, especially as a teacher. I don't even get how some professors can sleep with their college students; as that's "robbing the cradle" in my opinion and creeps me out, too.

    I personally wouldn't talk to a girl under 21, and even then, my personal minimum age is more like 23, and only if she's a mature and intelligent 23 year old. Going by the unofficial rule, I shouldn't be talking to younger than 25, but mentally I feel and act like I'm still 24, so... 🤷‍♂️

  • anything below the legal age of consent.

    once you become a legal adult, you become part of a group of people and enjoy those benefits that come with being an adult.

    yes you are allowed to drive, you are allowed to vote, you are allowed to join the military and go to war, you are allowed to drink alcohol and smoke and have tattoos, you are allowed to buy your home, you are allowed to study for whatever courses you like, you are allowed to apply for any job you want and yes you are allowed to date any legal adult regardless of height, age, race, social class, gender etc.

  • I mean in the eyes of the law, 18 is okay but socially it's weird. I think when both are older than 25/30ish then age gaps don't matter as much unless it's massive but anyone under 21 still feels a bit weird too

  • I have had sex with a man for the first time when i was 16 and i am sure he was older than 24-25. No regrets.

  • 21 will get you by the strange looks and glares of others and 7-10 years differentials. Good luck though as most of the 20-25 are chasing the old guys in the more established pubs and bars... It is a F-up dating world.

  • The age of consent is a matter of state law so it is not uniform thoughout the US. In many states, the age of consent is 16.

  • I recommend you date 21 since she could legally drink.

  • Wow! The vast majority says 21. Next in line is 18. So why in the hell would anyone vote Biden? New York Times approved Ashley Biden's diary. The diary in which states Biden had inappropriate showers with her. But he's totally the most Popular Prez of all times? He got 81 quadrillion votes?

    • Don't search Hunter Biden's Laptop images even if you are out of a SAFE WORK ENVIRONMENT. The child porn you will see, will get you in HOT WATER. Why? Because in deed you will have Child Pornography on your system.

    • Biden sniffs prepubescents hair. Has kids coming up to him in a pool, why? To make his leg hairs do stuff. Kids give his leg hairs a stiffy. And that's not the only stiffy he's getting.

    • Libtards complain about Trump! HA.

  • I say as long as she's legal it's fine. I don't know what you'd have in common to talk about though

  • Put 23. I’m not a fan of such large age ranges, especially for girls. But 18 is adulthood and legal.
