20 year old dating 17 year old uk
this isn't true btw although i am 20 just saying if i dated someone who is 15 how far can you go??
i know sexual intercourse is not allowed but what about hugging, holding hands and kissing on cheeks?? Even now that I am 17 and it's legal, we are waiting until our wedding night to make love.
But I don't think they have a right to judge anyone and I feel very strongly about that.
You can have your own opinion, even disagree with me, it's only natural.
There is a huge difference between 20 and 17 from a maturity point.
And to the weird guy who has a daughter and would like to kill the OP: Maybe I would feel differently if I had a daughter that age but I sure feel sorry for your daughter. I'd be respectful but I don't know if I'd not see her because of it. Naturally i want to protect her and if that make me weird then so be it. Oh, and just in response (kind of) to blueberryman's posts, about fathers and such, the girls dad had no problem with things either. I'm an almost 20 year old guy, I have a job, I have a car, I go to school, I don't touch drugs, I drink maybe three times a year and when I do, its in a friends basement where I know I'm staying for the night.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. I see nothing wrong with a 20-year-old guy with the maturity level of the Original Poster dating a 17-year-old girl. Remember: if she or they get upset at you and decide to press charges (whether anything happened between you two or not), you will be at their mercy.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.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).When I was 21, I was with a girl who was 16, had the body of a 22 y.o. The moral of this is, don't expect your parents to tell you the whole truth as to why they're not approving.
