Is it ok to be attracted to an 18 y/o

I am a female in my early twenties, and there is a guy I work with who I have developed feelings for, but he only recently turned 18. He is very mature and does not look or present himself like a teenager, but the age difference makes me a little bit uneasy. I'm not sure how to feel about this.
Is it normal?

  • you're in your early twenties? post this question again when you're sixty something and still wanting to pursue 18 year olds

    • I was expecting OP to be old enough to be his parent, I was so relieved when I read “early twenties”.

      I notice that he’s your colleague OP, how much do you like your job? How sad would you be if you had to look for another one if this romance went sideways?

      • We're actually both looking for new jobs currently, so that wouldn't really be a problem.

  • LOL really? You're in your early 20s, and think it's strange to be attracted to an 18-year old?

  • As long as both parties can consent, and neither person is taking advantage of the other, I see NO issue with age gaps.

      • Absolutely not with under 5 year age gaps once an adult even at barely an adult, and that stretches to 15 and 20 years by the time people are in their 60's or older.

      • This is the equivalent of a senior in Hs dating a freshmen. Seriously asking this question? You should know the answer.

      • Hell, I'm 32 and wanted to have sex with an 18 year old. And he wanted it back. Now, that I' 32, I wish I could go back with the confidemce I have now, and do it all over again. Unfortunately, womem don't start to become confident unti they are arpund 30. Live it up while you're young

        • Is this true? You are making me question things now. Does this also apply to guys?

          • Depends on how old you are. How old are you? I love younger guys, usually between 20-27. I love to tease younger guys. Yes, I would have sex with them. Women around 30 do have a lot more sexual confidence and they probably will say yes a lot more without having all those early 20, I'll call them virginity fears.
            So if you are a guy in your younger 20s, don't be afraid to entertain the idea of an older woman. Just always be kind.

  • I'd feel weird too, a lot of lived experience happens in your early twenties. Up to you.

  • What in the actual fuck is wrong with you? What kind of female in her early twenties would be into an 18 year old boy? Like, wtf? Seek mental help. You're obviously not in the right mind. What the hell?

  • As long as he's mature enough I don't see a problem.

  • it's not normal to see a problem with that.

  • I mean he's of legal age and you're only a few years apart. No big deal as far as I can see.

  • Perfectly OK, 18 is when a person is legally an adult and can engage in a consensual relationship, and as long as your feelings are mutual its perfectly normal, best wishes.

  • I dates a 30 year old woman when I was 19. And I dated a girl that was 30 when I was 40. Not a big deal.

  • It's normal, you are legally both adults.
