Well...hmmm...oddness...

Here's the story.

I met this really nice (re: HOT) girl at a coffee shop the other day. We got to talking, ect., and I got her number. Yesterday I called her up and asked her if she wanted to go out for lunch, maybe a movie...she said it sounded like fun. Fantastic...excellent...

Fast forward, we're at lunch. This girl's awesome, she's interesting, funny, ect. She tells me she's a dancer (no gentlemen, not a stripper)...she teaches dance at schools in the area, from hip hop, salsa, whatever...she's really into dance. She asks me if I dance. I tell her I used to go to clubs once in a while (I'm 23, my roommate's 21), but we haven't gone in a while because my roommate started dating a 17 year old, so she can't get into many of the clubs, even the 18 and over ones.

"I'm 17." She says.

Woah.

I didn't let it effect the date, and things went well. I'll probably call her today and set something up for next week, but should I feel like a dirty old man, or does it matter? My roommate says "go for it", because she's hot...I'm on the fence...

Go out with her again and decide if you still like her as much as you did after the first date. If so...

Talk to her about it. Tell her you really like her and want to see more of her but you are concerned that she is not yet 18. See what she says. You might be lucky and her birthday is only a month away or something.

I don't personally consider 23-17 that big of an age difference, assuming the relationship is otherwise healthy. However, you could be signing yourself up for a world of trouble with parents, etc. if you do not proceed very cautiously.

Whether or not you should persue a relationship with a 17-19 year old should be taken on a case by case basis. This teaching dance thing would suggest to me that she is a little more mature and diciplined then some of her same-age counter parts. I would go for it (if I was 21. Sadly, I'm too old to be dating anymore 17 year old.)

Is she starting her senior year of high school? That would weird me out more than the difference between 17 and 23. What would you have to talk about? She's trying to pass Algebra in order to graduate and you're out there in the real world trying to explain to those Best Buy customers the difference between Widescreen and Fullscreen.

Where's your self-esteem? That kind of defeatist talk will get you nowhere.

Hey come on now, if she's going to study the Cosmos she has to be at least somewhat intelligent!

Well, obviously...I'm not looking to get married.

I asked her for her number initially because she's gorgeous. Then while we talked, I realized she's pretty cool too.

Wise advice. Go for it, I sure would if I were your age.

eX was pretending (I think ) to think that cosmetology was about space, planets, etc. Of course, it helps to know who Sagan and Hawking are/were.

17 is soooo young. But we'll do the math anyway...

23 / 2 = 11.5

11.5 + 7 = 18.5

Nope... the youngest you can date is 18 and a half. Walk away... Your roommate can nail her all he wants though.
