17 dating a 21 year old Adult text chatrooms
I actually appreciated it because it allowed me to focus on me, without getting distracted by something for which I just wasn't ready (emotionally).
That's probably where a lot of my point of view comes from.

In that case it would be easier to judge whether their relationship was appropriate or not.
In my experience, 21 year old boys do not usually have a fully matured sense of their sexuality - not necessarily more than a 17 year old girl.
On a messageboard primarily of teen girls I asked "what age difference do you allow for in dating? If they really like each other, I might allow him to become "friends of the family" and they could spend time together that way. _ dating someone that much younger than you may mean he's NOT a catch _he may put pressure on her to be sexually active before she's ready _he may be drinking socially, teens can't do that All that spells trouble with a capital T. But, we met when I was an adult, independent, and living on my own.
(I use those ages because that's the situation I'm currently in) No way would I allow my teenage daughter to date a male of 21 years or older. I am in an age gap relationship myself (17 years of an age gap).
said that they do NOT date people their own age or younger cos it's *so* immature (which I think is ridiculous). If your daughter was 17 would you let her date a 21 year old? Especially in situations where an "older" male is interested.
