is 18 and 25 too big age gap (im the 18 year old)

Yeah absolutely too big.

You want to think about age gaps in regards to developmental milestones to be able to understand if the relationship would be unhealthy or not.

At 18, developmentally you are still growing. Chances are, you’re at a point where it’s time to start figuring out how you want to shape your adult life, and you don’t have too many adult experiences to reflect that direction. Your social groups are different. Your goals are different. And you’re at a prime age for people who skirt the legal age line to prey on.

At 25, that person is settling down into their adult groove, their brain is finally done growing (between 24-26) and they have 7 years of adult experience under their belt. People in their mid 20s generally have a life plan laid out.

As far as relationships go, power dynamics on this one have it too skewed.

And that’s why teen/mid to late 20s relationships are so dangerous. They’re close enough to your age that they remember and can sympathize with your experiences, leaving you vulnerable to manipulation because they’re the “older, wiser adult”. Also, because of your developmental differences, you both should have completely different relationship goals in mind. A grown adult should be looking for someone more stable and grounded than an 18 year old. And that’s nothing against you! But think about it. When a 25 year old is not looking into their own dating pool, that should set off red flags. Why is this person trying to date someone who’s freshly an adult? Why is this person not looking for someone they can actually relate to?

I’m sorry if this is not the news you want to hear. But any 25 year old trying to date an 18 year old is a creep. -Mod Dave
