Superb Opinion

  • The ages 18 and 30 in a relationship is pretty creepy considering 18 year olds are still in high school and are right on the border adult and minor. Teens that are 18 are definitely not mentally adults at all and are much more easily manipulated by older adults. Also if the 18 year old was 1 year younger a relationship with an adult would be illegal. Plus in some countries the legal adult age is 20 or 21. The ages 20 and 25 dating isn't really a big deal though considering they are both legal adults and it isn't the big of an age difference. I think young adults in their early 20's would only work in a relationship with a 30 year old if the 20 something was very mature for their age.

  • Not at all girls mature way more before boys , and a lot of boys stay boy for life or get worse. I'm really glad girl s your age like older because I like smart girls your age too🤗. And yeah I get why you don't like those immature boys your age their childish actions and best get me Soo annoyed, angry, I feel really sad and sorry for them. I don't laugh at them I just node my head in silence and think this how I was ooof how embarrassing

  • No. The guy I am dating now is more than a decade older than me, and it feels normal to me. Now an 18 to 20 year old dating a 75 to 80 year old, that might be a little weird.

  • It is quite a range you give. I would say on average relationships are closer in age, but that isn't unheard of or absurd.

    • i dont like boys closer to my age theyre acting like child

    • That is common for younger girls to look for slightly older men as they are more mature and established. Nothing strange with that.

    • thanks

  • Kind of absurd, the girl has no live experience to really compare it to, and the guys I have to believe are really just taking advantage.

    When I was 25 I probably date a 20 year old, but the closure to 18 and 30 the more freaky it becomes.

  • It's very common.

  • It is neither normal (in the statistical sense) nor is it absurd. It is uncommon but understandable.

  • No pretty normal

  • Definitely verging on a power imbalance

  • It's pretty normal, but I'm leery of guys older than say 22 dating women still in or just out of high school. It's definitely strange for a guy close to 30 to be dating women under 21. Usually the men who do that are unable to attract a partner closer to their own age. They are immature and pick on naive young women without much confidence.

  • It's not absurd at all, it's actually kind of a normal. Tons of women love dating older men, you typically get more experienced lovers

  • Love, older men

  • It is fine as long as you have compatible morals, compatible long term life goals, and some things in common you enjoy doing together. I'd be with someone that age too for long term as long as she was a good match for me.

  • Normal.

  • Not an ideal situation

  • Perfectly normal.

  • It is not absurd. It is also legal. If both people like each other then there is no problem.

  • absurd? yes. normal? also yes. girls, specially very young girls have obsessions with older guys. but that's usually a phase that goes away once they get experience.

  • That is very normal. I have always dated older

  • Normalish.

  • Nope, I don't think it is

  • It's normal.

  • Sure, she’s legal.

  • Are both legal adults? Are you interested in someone with that kind of dynamic?
