Is it ok for a 15 yo old girl to date a 17 yo guy

My daughter is 15 and will be 16 in 3 months she just told me about this guy she has been talking to for a while. The only problem is that he is 17 and will be 18 in 2 months. He has a job and a car, and seems to be responsible. What are your thoughts and experiences?

I would go REALLY slow with this one. I think that is too far apart in age for a 15 year-old, and certainly not great for first time dating. It would be like getting thrown into the deep end. I certainly wouldn't let her go on dates with him in his car yet. Even a responsible 18 year old will try to get a girl to go farther than she would want to go on the physical scale. He could come to your house to hang out with her, then maybe on to group or double dating where she is never alone with him in the car.
I think my answer will be controversial. This is very likely a common scenario. I wish my parents hadn't let me ride alone in a car with an older guy when I was 15 years old.

Your right SocialpoppyI'm so torn with this! I trust my daughter not so much guys in general. He seems to be respectful but I don't know!
