Follow 17 Age gap is too big. Needs to be same age. Follow 18 Love comes to people differently and the fact that something as superficial as an age gap is considered as 'weird' astounds me. If a couple has a happy, consensual and satisfying relationship, factors such as age, background or looks become meaningless.

She doesn't seem to realize that this is a bad idea. Report 6 years ago 5. Original post by ellemay Well he's a fun friend to have around. I just know that it'd be a terrible idea to date him! So how do I convince my friend that it's a bad idea to date him? I think she just feels flattered that an older guy likes her.
She is acting kind of blind to all of the obvious bad signs. Report 6 years ago 6. She needs to make her own mistakes, tell her your worries, but if you tell her guns blazing, not to date him, you'll probably loose a friend.
Posted from TSR Mobile. Report 6 years ago 7. Tell her what you told us.
But ultimately it is her decision, and you should respect that. Report 6 years ago 8.
She's 22 years old, capable of looking after herself and learning from her mistakes. I wouldn't get too involved if I was you, just make sure you're there for her if things do go wrong. Report 6 years ago 9. Usually I would say that the age difference is a big deal but that doesnt seem to be the issue. If you're really worried about your friend and dont think she can handle it, i'd say maybe say something to her like 'be careful because ive heard x, y, z' but dont try and nag her about it or get upset if she doesnt break up with him.
Its her life and she needs to make her own mistakes.
Report 6 years ago For a start, age does not matter,anyone who thinks so,like what century are you living in?? Anyway you are being such a good friend. Just be there for her if things go wrong. He sounds like he is messed up a bit.
Maybe even talking to him would help as you say he is your friend,so maybe he needs help too.. Maybe warn her what you know and it is up to her if she listens or not. Why are you asking for advice?

Original post by ellemay But it is her life so I guess I should just let her make her own mistakes. I just don't want to see one of my best friends get hurt really badly. Especially if that means she won't be able to hang out with my group of friends anymore cause it's too painful for her to see him.
watch The age isn't what seems to be the issue here. You don't want her to be another screwed up conquest of his. Use tact though ; if you see that shes not taking in what you're saying you just need to be prepared to be the supportive friend at the end of it all. The age isn't an issue at all. If you're worried he is gonna take her on a whirlwind romance and then drop her, thats different. You could try to just tell her to take things slow with this guy, but i'm not sure its even your place to say that? Just be there for her if things start to go wrong. If they are both happy then it is probably best to leave them be besides you say he is your friend anyway.
Just stay out of it. If either of them think that you are interfering then you will lose them as friends. In my experience, people don't learn till they make the mistake themselves.
