There is a HUGE difference between most 17 & 18 year olds, and most people in (even) their early 20s.

(I'm very young for my grade.) We have a lot in common and I think we both love each other a lot.
We make a LOT of changes, and rapidly, in those first years out of high school.
While I know there is no "one size fits all" rule regarding dating, I thinking that teenagers dating older people is generally a really bad idea.
