    Would it be wrong for a 27, almost 28 year old dude to date someone who just turned 20?

    In my opimion I don't think it is wrong at all. You would be surprised at how many married couples have about 10 years difference in their age.

    You posted this in the wrong forum. :tongue:

    Wrong forum, dude.

    But before your post gets moved... no, it's not "wrong." I met my future wife when she was 25 and I was 32.

    What you'll have to consider are the other factors and opinions involved: parents, her friends, your friends, college/career/job stability, and etc.

    But it was no prob for me.

    Nah. I'm 29 and wouldn't date a 20 year old, but that's just me.

    I've seen alot worse age differences than that.

    Well, I wouldn't think it was wrong for me to want to marry someone who was 20 (as if there actually was such a woman), so obviously I wouldn't imagine it was wrong for someone of my age to date someone who was 20.

    She has her head on her shoulders, she is majoring in Graphic Design. I began college the same way, but then switched majors to Photography.

    Same here. I'd rather date someone who is my age (29 here) or in her late 20s (around 27-28) - early 30s.

    The real question is... does she like Transformers. If the answer is yes than there isn't a problem.

    I don't think that's too much of a problem. As long as she's mature enough, it's fine. Maybe if it was a 10 year difference as in you were 20 and she was 10 then it would be wrong...

    As long as you two are happy!

    I see no problem with that. I am 34, and am willing to date women 18 and up. Go for it if you have a connection with her.

    Me = 18 and single

    All my girlfriends have been younger than me.

    But currently being in college I have to worry about 19-21.

    So my age group isn't too far off lol

    as long as you feel she's mature and knows what she wants in life yes or in 6 years or so she'll realize she wanted other things in life...

    Heck no. When I got with my girlfriend nearly five years ago, I was 26 and she was 20.
    To be honest, as long as she's not too much younger (as in illegally), age shouldn't really factor in as much as personal compatibility.

    I think one of the more important factors should be how much your common interests overlap, and how you deal with the differences. It's perfectly fine to like things your partner doesn't, but if one of you actually can't respect something that makes the other happy (be it your Transformers or otherwise), that's where problems can arise, because it eventually breeds resentment.

    I'm 28, and I'm pretty good friends with a few 19-20 year old girls that I would definitely consider dating if I was single. Coz they are cool, good people, and that's what matters at the end of the day.

    I don't imagine anyone would look down on it at all.
