Doesn't bother me, but some people find it wrong. As long as he is younger than my older sister i think it would be fine. What do you think??

    ... however- a 17 year old dating anything older than 25 is kinda creepy.

    Age is one of many many factors to consider in a relationship. Personally, I know a friend who was in a relationship with her same age boyfriend (both started dating while they were juniors in college) for 2 years and they are absolutely miserable with each other. I also know my aunt's herb doctor whose wife is 10 years younger then him, and their marriage is very blissful.

    People, instead of focusing on age, should focus more what they have in common with their partner. Do their interests, values, and outlook on life mesh or are they in conflict with each other? I believe this is more important and can make or break a relationship no matter how much age difference is there.

    My mother is married to a man nine years younger than she is and they just had their 23rd anniversary. As with many other things in life; it really depends on the people involved. Everyone is different.

    It's not that big of an age difference. I dated a 22-year-old at 17 and it was fine. If a problem arises, dump him.

    This is fine. That that it's technically illegal is a problem with the law. The law should be changed to allow this.

    The only case I actually know the 23 old guy was a user of people and a little controlling.

    After reading Vampire Academy, I don't judge anymore. Not that 17 and 23 are very far apart as it is.

    17 is a little young to be dating someone 6 years older, but it really depends on the people. If you're mature for your age, and he's a little immature for his age, it should be okay. If it works for you, do it. 17 is old enough that there won't be legal repercussions or anything, but really do think about it.

    Being younger than your older sister isn't a very good point of reference by the way >.>

    I am a little biased towards this question I think lol
    As long as you guys are on the same mental wave length, no big deal.

    Not that I'd phrase it that way...but in fact, at 17 I dated a 23 year old man and it was lovely. He took very good care of me; I'm grateful for his sensitivity, humor and intelligence to this day.

    I did not click blue; I would have chosen green. It is just fine for someone 17 to date a 23-year-old. I was 16 when I dated a guy of 23. He was lovely and I married him 40 years later.

    Depends on the individuals, IMO. There is a HELL of a lot of growing up that happens from 17 to 23.

    Age is not a big issue unless it is obviously wrong. Ex, a five year girl with a 30 year old man. Both a 17 year old and a 23 year old are in the same age range. Perfectly fine.

    Sure it is. The age of consent in most places is 16 or 17.
