This is mostly your own fault.

It's not like you had his license right in front of you and as long as you have moved on, dont be so hard on yourself :) lots of other people in the world to crush on :)

Ouch. You probably should have known his age if you were crushing on him for months

The way op says "not 22" makes it seem like he lied on social media or something so she had every reason to assume he was older

If it was just a crush from afar that never cumulated in conversation until now there ISN'T any way to know. There are teenagers 15 and sometimes younger with full face, arm, leg and/or chest hair. Looks are all based off genetics, not age. Does it make it right for OP to persue the attraction? Not at all. And judging by OP ending with it being gross I highly doubt they will. Relax. Accidents happen. Hell, I'm 25 and am asked on occasion at work "Shouldn't you be in school?" And yes, they mean high school. I take it as a compliment and look forward to looking in my 20's when I'm pushing 40.

Ya, I'm assuming this is a crush from far away where they have very little, if any, communication. In which case there was no way op could've known. I'm kind of wondering where op would be seeing this guy. Maybe she works in retail and he comes to her store sometimes?

Hopefully in three years OP will have matured as well as they will then be 25 which is still a different mindset than a barely 18 year old. It's one thing if they met as consenting adults but if OP waited for a kid to be legal that's creepy...

The age of consent is 16 in MOST of Australia, but it's 17 in Tasmania and South Australia. There are exceptions that make consensual sex legal if the two people are of similar ages.

#22 when did he ever say or imply that? All he said was an example of how some people could look older. A six foot tall person with a full beard definitely looks older than 8th grade.

I'm curious as to what 22/37 said that made all these comments. It looks like the moderators may have taken his comments right off cause there not showing up here for me. It's actually kinda funny to read everyone's responses without those comments. Makes me want to just agree and go "seriously 22. Grow up" or something. Lol.

in all fairness a lot of young teens these days look way older and are more developed than before. I know lots of people that would go for a teenager only for discover their age, then back off.

I first met my hubby when he was 20 and I was 14. After a few walks conversation got around to age for the first time and when we realized the huge age gap we both backed off. (What can I say, he was a late bloomer and had almost no facial hair.) 13 years later we met again, coincidentally. That age gap didn't feel so big anymore.
