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.

Causes too many problems and may cause unemployment for either or both. As the parent of a 20 year old daughter, knowing her male friends that are her age, and thinking back on her level of maturity at 17 (and that of those same male friends at that age) I would have to say that I don't see anything wrong with it. BUT..this is a BIG factor..is still a minor..be VERY careful in your actions.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 really don't see why my being 20 would make you want to kill me. (and feel free to use this gauge for the rest of your life).Would I be thrilled, naw...would I be upset, not really. If she improves you as a person, and you do the same for her..I'm not just talking between the two of you but those strange outward manifestations where parents say things like "she's really good for him..has a new sense of purpose, he's more aware of the consequences of his actions", etc., then I'd say it's a good thing. Mine, OTOH, had 2 issues...one, they felt like she was too incredible looking (damn close to a 10) and two, socially her family had an incredible case of red-neck-itis (mom didn't tell me this part until a few years later).Recently met a girl through my job (she is a student nurse) She's great and we get on really well. Alot of my mates think that the age gap is too big? As long as 17 is above the age of consent where you are, legally you are fine.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.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.This isn’t necessarily a deal breaker, but it’s worth considering where each of you are in your respective lives and what each of you want.
