Would you let your 16 yr old dd date a 19 year old?

Just curious because my dd thinks she should be able to date a 19 yr old who just graduated high school.

Would you let your 16 yr old dd date a 19 yr old?

    Quoting wakymom:

    It would depend. How mature is she? Were they friends before he graduated? If she's pretty mature and responsible for her age and they had already been friends, I might not be happy, but I wouldn't try to say "No way!".

    It would depend on maturity levels etc, and my gut instinct about him/it

    While your daughter may be mature enough, he is still much older. Why would he need to date someone so young? Does he have a criminal record? I would not approve of my daughter dating someone that much older if she was still under 18.
