Yeah. Speaking from experience, I know.

A few years ago when I was 21, a good friend who I got back in contact with, had some friends a bit younger than himself with similar interests as us(MMORPG heads at the time) . He was 17, the others were 16 and 15. Problem is they were girls... well, my problem anyway, one was his girlfriend and the other, her best friend who I was cool with.

He took me over her house, we all just hung out played games, just innocent, clean fun(I wasn't attracted to her but she liked me. A 21 year old and a 15 year old doesn't look good in court... so no way thats happening. Well in the end her family didn't like me hanging out with her(can't hold it against them too much, we see alot of crazy things happen in the news), but they threatened to call the police if I came around (Funny, we never even made any sort of physical contact with each other... Not even a handshake).

So a perfectly good friendship gone, age is a factor.


15 is the best year to train your future wife =D ahaha but if that was my kid i'd definitely prohibit her from hanging out w/ older men, specially at the adolescent age and that big a gap. i dont blame her parents, you'd probably do the same thing if that was your kid.

I dont think so. I currently have friends ranging from age 11 to 35 and age gap doesn't even hinder us from having fun. I think she's the problem and not the age. She's probably just using that as an excuse. Well...I don't know. All I know is that age DOESN'T matter at all!

Yeah, that why there is really no hard feelings. They were looking out for her, but doesn't threating to call the police seem a bit extreme considering I only visited 1 or 2 times a month.

ive got friends in there 60's and friends who are in their early 20's - people are people IMO so age isnt too much of a factor. i think that when you are very young though its important to have enough friends of your own age as well so that you can do things appropriate for your age. having mostly older friends when youre say 12-16 can encourage you to grow up faster than you might usually, and childhood is something you should enjoy for as long as you can.

Ideally, no. If only we lived in a perfect world where people aren't sick and twisted, or in a world where society doesn't judge people in any way whatsoever.

In our society, it really does have a lot to do with how old you are.. especially if you are still a child and you are "friends" with an adult who's not related in any way.

You should wonder why someone so old would try to befriend somebody wayy way younger. Unless they're a social worker or a daycare worker..?

No it does not matter, although you feel different to when you are with friends the same age as you and you will sometimes not know what to say
