Okay, am I the only one who thinks it isn't right for a 22 year old male to be making friends with a 17 year old female still in high school? I'm not talking about anything sexually motivated, to be clear on that. But I mean, he graduated five years before she will and she can't even buy cigarettes, let alone, fully appreciate the difference in mentality/life experience that five years will make. Even if there are no ulterior motives by any party, I think its a little weird to befriend someone you couldn't have even theoretically gone to high school with. It'd be different if it were like, your older siblings best friend, like it is with my boyfriend and younger sister to be friends.
Am I just totally crazy? I truly do think that the age boundaries that exist for how much older a 16 year old's boyfriend/girlfriend could be without being sketchy also exist with friendships, though maybe not as tightly. I just don't agree with someone who can legally buy alcohol in the U.S. befriending someone who can't even buy lottery tickets.
