When you're in high school being one or two years apart is a huge thing, but when you're an adult you couldn't care less, amirite?

Even in high school it's not a big deal... a lot of my friends date upperclassmen.

I'm friends with mostly seniors, and people that have already graduated, and I'm only a sophomore.

It's not just a social thing. It's mathematical. With each year older a person gets, the less significant that year is to that person's age. For instance when a baby turns two, he is double his previous age. But when a person turns say, 30, their age only went up by 1/30 of what it had been. So as you get older, each year matters less, which is why it becomes more normal, not only socially, to have a bigger age difference between partners.

Imagine a 1000 year old dating a 990 year old. The age difference would be completely insignificant. Now think of a 28 year old dating an 18 year old. See what I mean? Mathematically?

28 year old is more than 1.5 times older than 18 year old, whereas 1000 is only 1.01 times older than 990 despite the same age gap.

This is such a huge problem in my school. Half the people think it's gross dating someone younger / older than you, the rest take it overboard to borderline pedophilia.

When you're older 10 years isn't even that much of a difference anymore (20 and 30 let's say) but God forbid you're 17 and you wanna date a 14 year old. Guess it's simply because of the whole "still growing" kinda thing

Its because the younger one will lose innocence a lot faster if they are dating someone much older.

im not gonna date a 9 year old oh no im not

Quick question: does anyone else here think an 18 year old dating a 16 year old is gross? Why or why not?

No, it's not. I personally find a 3 year age difference to be the limit (although I'd stick with 2 years myself)
But 16 & 18 is fine, as they're both mentally mature enough to understand everything that's going on.
