    well thank you I try.

    Its hard because I try to be a coach and a friend and sometimes the girls make me regret it BUT I still think its the best way to be so Im not going to punish the good girls because of the bad.

    I have friends that think im nuts because of the 18/19 year olds, they tell me I better take care of business cause those opportunities wont be around forever LOL

    it just still "seems" wrong to me lol As much as it would probably be soooooooo much fun with this one 19yr old in particular, who is quite frankly, freaking stunning!!!! I just know after I would feel. . . . well. . . dirty

    I mean a girl 4 years older than my daughter and 2-3 yrs older than most the girls I coach. No thanks.

    and not the good type of dirty LOL
    they got to atleast be 21 I think hahahaha

    Ten years is no big if you're both adults to start with. Fifteen is doable if all else is good.

    If he was born in 1960 then he's 51 years old. She's 16. Holy crap, that's huge. The mere fact that she's SIXTEEN is a big deal; it would be a little less drastic if she were 18, much less so if she were 21 or 22. I don't know them; I don't know what their relationship is like: I think, though, it is not unreasonable to say that she's probably a gold-digger and he's probably what was once called a "lecher". (A man who lusts after girls young enough to be his daughter.) Heck, she could almost be his grand daughter.

    Now, on the other hand... my ex-wife was ten years my junior. Her first two marriages didn't last long. Her third husband was in his late 50's when she was in her mid/late 20's, about thirty-one years older. Her and Hubby3 seem to actually have a good relationship... they've been stable for almost a decade, which is a miracle for her. She seems to geniunely love him, though he is literally the same age as her father.

    Buddy of mine married a 29yo when he was 44... they seem to get along very well.

    OTOH while there are exceptions, I think an age diff of more than 15 years is usually not a good thing. I've tried it a couple times but it hasn't worked for me; the difference in perspective is just really huge, unless the younger person is exceptionally mature and unusually experienced in life.

    Also, Juliet Mills and Max Caulfied. She is 18 years his senior, married at 39 and 21 respectively. They have now been married over 30 years.

    What about that Mary Kay Letourneau teacher person? Is she still married to her ex-student? He waited for her to get out of prison and everything.

    Outside of pedophilia, I don't believe in choosing your partner based on their age. It has zero to do with anything. Life experience, maturity, and a person's economic level matter more than arbitrary age.

    Nothing about this girls suggests to me that she is mature (mentally, that is). Have you seen the excepts of her YouTube videos? Not exactly a shining example of maturity.

    Re: Age gaps - how much is too much

    Meh, I don't see the big deal. It's a bigger age gap than I would be comfortable with, but I'm not going to sit in judgment of someone else's relationship as long as they aren't breaking any laws. 16 is old enough to consent in most states. Is this 51-year-old dating this 16-year-old because he wants to screw a teenager and manipulate her? Yeah, probably. But he's famous, and from the article I read, she's an aspiring actress. It kinda makes me wonder who is really manipulating who in this relationship. But in any case, I don't see anything inherently immoral about such an arrangement. If he wants to screw a pretty teenager and she wants to screw a rich celebrity, they're both getting what they want, so what's the harm?
