If this rule applies to the AGE, then a 17 year old and a 22 year old would not be legal sexually because they are 5 years apart. I have not been able to answer this question through reading statutes online.
I saw her during the week and just acted casually, come friday (today) she was finishing work and leaving and we got walking and talking, after some exchanges I asked her if she'd given my coffee invitation some thought and she said "As much as I'd like to say yes...
I don't know if you know but you're 6 years older than me" I was pretty much taken aback, although I hadn't asked her age previously, I made some pretty educated guesses to reach a minimum age of 18.
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.
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.
You show a good level of maturity by even thinking this through the way you are.
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.
Last night we were talking and she mentioned it was her birthday. Heck, when I was in High School I had next to nothing in common with them.
Apparently, so did SHE, since she didn't date the entire time she was in high school for that exact reason. To the parents out there that say they would not let there 17 year old daughter date a 20 year old boy. Lets just say YOU THINK you know everything that's happening. Do you think a 20 year old dating a 17 year old is wrong?
I agree that there's generally a big difference between 20 and 17, which is why generally I don't date younger women and I've made it a rule not to date high school girls. As for not dating in the work place, if I had some important job I would agree. Of course it is WRONG, unless the woman is the 20 year old and the 17 year old is a male. when I was in High School I had next to nothing in common with them. Anyway, I also think you're maybe looking for an excuse, or somebody's permission. If she or her parents have a problem you'll find out soon enough, even if you don't ask them.
I legitimately had no idea she was 16 when I asked her out Alright, so, I'm 22 (turned 22 in July), over the past few weeks I've been talking to and flirting with a girl that works at a coffee place near my work; She ticked all my metaphorical boxes - She is from the US with a strong accent (I love a US accent), she is pale, has back thigh tattoos and has the same weird love for Dragonball Z that I do.
