I will answer your post but please read what I said
|As Heidi said above, it was a general question and posters are defending their opinions which she decided to make personal.
The majority of answers are not just about you, they are people saying if THEY believe in it.
and back to your question
Because, IMO someone that much older looking at a minor as their partner is weird, and it is my right to have that opinion. You do a lot of growing up as a teenager, and for me, 14 is a lot different to 18.
I remember being 19 and not even wanting my 14 y/o sister around me because she was such a kid, let alone 'be' with someone that age, and yes generally it is the other way around as guys tend to be more immature, but to me the same standards apply.
At 22, most guys have very different priorities and outlooks on life to a 14 year old. My BF and I have a big age gap, and my mum didn't like it and I was 21 when I met him and 22 when we started dating and had moved out of home so she didn't have much say.
But looking at my sister who things (after 4 years) didn't work out for with the guy she started dating at 15-16 when he was in his 20s, she regrets all those years where she lost out on being a teenager. You have said yourself you are mature, but part of that is probably because of your relationship and not always being around people your own age.
If it works for you, hey that is great. But I would stop my children (if I had any) from dating someone that much older while they are so young.
