Im 17 dating 22 year old
My son is 23 years old and is dating a 17 year old girl. Her mother has threatened him with the police and that she'll have him arrested if he doesn't stay away from her daughter.
She lives with her Mother in SC and comes to visit her Dad in NC where she also visits my son. This is a consensual relationship between my son and this girl and they have discussed marriage after she turns 18. The age of consent in North Carolina (the age at which a juvenile can consent to vaginal intercourse or a sexual act with a person older than the juvenile, and the older person will NOT be guilty of statutory rape or sex offense) is 16 years of age.

Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing... There's this girl I work with, have for about 2 months, who I think is pretty awesome.
And to the weird guy who has a daughter and would like to kill the OP: Maybe I would feel differently if I had a daughter that age but I sure feel sorry for your daughter. I'd be respectful but I don't know if I'd not see her because of it. Naturally i want to protect her and if that make me weird then so be it. Oh, and just in response (kind of) to blueberryman's posts, about fathers and such, the girls dad had no problem with things either. I'm an almost 20 year old guy, I have a job, I have a car, I go to school, I don't touch drugs, I drink maybe three times a year and when I do, its in a friends basement where I know I'm staying for the night.
I honestly am not so much looking for permission as I am curious about the thoughts of others. And if you had a daughter you might have a friggin clue, I dated a girl who was only a few months into being 17... I had made an exception in her case, because I had my own little rules for dating anyone more than a couple years younger than me. Her mother loved me, although it helped that her mom knew me. I'm well read, I keep up with the news, I'm active politically, I would rather watch a movie made 50 years before I was born than the latest torture-porn at the theatres.
But in the few months I've known her, this one seems difference. At the moment I work part time at a fast food place while I go to college. I lost my virginity to a 19 year old woman when I was 16! But 2-3 years older for the guy is quite typical -- the average age of the male in first marriages is about 2 years older, so maybe you're over-thinking this.
After their relationship began she revealed her true age and her mother became infuriated (understandably so) and he backed off from seeing her until she turned 16.I really don't see why my being 20 would make you want to kill me. (and feel free to use this gauge for the rest of your life).Would I be thrilled, naw...would I be upset, not really. If she improves you as a person, and you do the same for her..I'm not just talking between the two of you but those strange outward manifestations where parents say things like "she's really good for him..has a new sense of purpose, he's more aware of the consequences of his actions", etc., then I'd say it's a good thing. Mine, OTOH, had 2 issues...one, they felt like she was too incredible looking (damn close to a 10) and two, socially her family had an incredible case of red-neck-itis (mom didn't tell me this part until a few years later).Apparently, so did SHE, since she didn't date the entire time she was in high school for that exact reason. To the parents out there that say they would not let there 17 year old daughter date a 20 year old boy. Lets just say YOU THINK you know everything that's happening. Do you think a 20 year old dating a 17 year old is wrong?I agree that there's generally a big difference between 20 and 17, which is why generally I don't date younger women and I've made it a rule not to date high school girls. As for not dating in the work place, if I had some important job I would agree. Of course it is WRONG, unless the woman is the 20 year old and the 17 year old is a male. when I was in High School I had next to nothing in common with them. Anyway, I also think you're maybe looking for an excuse, or somebody's permission. If she or her parents have a problem you'll find out soon enough, even if you don't ask them.
