Do you want me to be serious? Putting aside the ridiculousness of the scenario -- Half your post is about yourself and consequences you are afraid to get into. That's not the spirit of Christ or any benignant man.

Yes please be serious.
...Or it's just possible he's a mouthy young man on an internet forum.
In the infinite wisdom of God, James can be all three.

The solution to this or any other fancies is to put them out of your head and occupy yourself with becoming a godly man.

James


Just go ask Orthonorm to tell you what to do.


You won't like or listen to anyone here anyhow, save everyone the time.

Wisdom.

Any 18 year old, no matter how immature, who is attracted to a ninth grader, is well... I'd rather not get the red dot.

Long story short, I've been falling in love with this young lady at my parish. The only problem is, however, that I'm 18 years old and she is 14 going on 15.

Here you go, James.

Statutory Rape Legal Advice

Quote
"If you are arrested for statutory rape, remain silent. Don't try to explain your side of it to the cops or talk your way out of it. Let me handle it; that's what I'm here for. A statutory rape charge can have significant consequences, which is why I will conduct a thorough investigation to help prove your side of the story...and your innocence."

James, you're closer in age to that girl than I am to my own husband, but there's a big difference between an 18 and 14/15 year-old and a 27 and 31/32 year-old. I don't think you're a pedophile, but I do think this scenario is loaded with potential disaster. Avoid.

I actually think a 14 year old might be too mature for him.

Not that he's serious anyway. Next week he'll be wanting to be permanently celibate, or a monk, or marry an atheist, or or or...

Maybe he should spit on her and end this whole question.

Honestly. I am fairly certain that some people sit around chatting about what topic they can have the young man post to make us all react to him.

And then he and they sit there laughing at the OC net idiots for 'falling for it'

Long story short, I've been falling in love with this young lady at my parish. The only problem is, however, that I'm 18 years old and she is 14 going on 15. I've asked one of my good friends and she advised me to wait until she reaches legal age. But, I'm open to as many opinions as I can get.

So what should I do?

Listen to that "good friend".  Or listen to ZealousZeal.  And work on making yourself an even better you. 
"Do not tempt the Mor thy Mod."

Mor no longer posts on OCNet.  He follows threads, posts his responses daily, occasionally starts threads, and responds to private messages when and as he wants.  But he really isn't around anymore.

So what should I do? Am I too old for this young maiden? She's everything I've ever wanted--pious, blonde, mature, humble. Her family seems like nice people too imo. I'd like to ask her out on a date, but I am afraid that our age difference may be too much.

Will people perceive me as a pedophile? Will I be violating any laws? I don't plan on being sexually active unless/until I get married. Could a relationship like this work out? Also, is this dangerous for me? I know that me being an adult and her being a minor is kind of risky since that if we were to ever break up (assuming we got together) or I did something to tick her off, that she could lie and feign rape, in which case, I could be seriously busted and falsely labeled a child molester or something.
Write her an akathist. Works every time.

I'll take one for the team if it keeps him from writing religious erotica about poor Maria, who was murdered today the 17th.

Let me list the issues here, pedophile aside.


1. 14 year old church going girls do not go out on 'dates', and certainly not an unchaperoned one with an adult (although I hesitate to use this word, technically you are one)
2. 'her family seem nice'......have you talked to them? socialized with all of them together at a coffee hour or something? Have you actually spoken -with- this paragon of Orthodoxy and blond virtue? Or are you judging her personality from seeing her in Sunday School.  :laugh:
3. If she is 15, where do you see this whole thing going for the next 4+ years until she could marry you at age 18?
4. Her parents likely would like her not to go and get married the day after she turns 18 and instead be educated, experience life a bit. So extend that 'waiting time' for another 4+ years.  That would make you 27 give or take.  By then you will be
a. married to someone else (likely a virginal prostitute from some 3rd world country)
b. a monk because you don't ever want to get married
c  have gotten cancer from the snus

lol!

One has to remember from 14 to 18, you're a totally different person.  From 18-21, you're a totally different person.  From 21-25, you're a totally different person.  And once you hit 30, you get depressed.  :P

But seriously, James, you say you like what you see now, but if and when you decide to wait a very long time to date her at an appropriate age as ZZ alluded to, don't you think maybe she might be a whole lot different than what she was, and you yourself might be a whole lot different than what you are now?

I think someone needs to write an akathist to servant of God, kelly.  JamesR, get on that.

On OC.net thou wast annoyed and driven to near insanity by JamesR
Steadfast upholder of passive aggression,
You always bless our forum with humor and misplaced hate
To thee, Kelly,
We ascribe glory and praise

I'll write the Oikos later :)

One has to remember from 14 to 18, you're a totally different person.  From 18-21, you're a totally different person.  From 21-25, you're a totally different person.  And once you hit 30, you get depressed.  :P

But seriously, James, you say you like what you see now, but if and when you decide to wait a very long time to date her at an appropriate age as ZZ alluded to, don't you think maybe she might be a whole lot different than what she was, and you yourself might be a whole lot different than what you are now?

Yeah I suppose we may be. I certainly was different (though not much) than I am now when I was 14. However, that still doesn't relieve an aching heart; only food does that.

The key to aid your heart is to eat lots of bacon, doughnuts, and butter.  This will assure you a short, but happy, life.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

4. Her parents likely would like her not to go and get married the day after she turns 18 and instead be educated, experience life a bit. So extend that 'waiting time' for another 4+ years.  That would make you 27 give or take.  By then you will be
a. married to someone else (likely a virginal prostitute from some 3rd world country)
b. a monk because you don't ever want to get married
c  have gotten cancer from the snus

Well I wouldn't mind waiting that long for her if marriage was a real possibility. More time to establish myself and save money to give her and my possible children the life I wish I had.

Possible children? Last time I checked you didn't want any. Further back, you were even asking the forum about the merits of getting a vasectomy once you turned 18.

The morals of the story: What goes online stays online. Post in youth, repent when it turns around and bites you - but, too late, the damage is done.

Let's see. You've gone from lust, for a child because she happens to have yellow hair, to fear of man, or the cops to be exact, to gluttony, in order to "ease [your] aching heart," to greed. Any other vices you'd like to profess tonight?

Why date her if marriage was NOT a real possibility????

Well, the positive part of all this is you can do the monk thing for a few years until she gets old enough.  Then, in a dramatic act of love, you can cast off your monastic vows and proclaim your undying love for her.  She will be moved by your great sacrifice and fall into your arms.  Oh, the stories you will be able to tell to your hypothetical children that you are unable to have due to your ill advised vasectomy at age 18!

Yes.  That would be the loving (toward the new guy) and vengeful (toward the old guy) thing to do.  A win-win.  Why don't they ever think of that?
