NINE years? That makes you, what 26? Uhm... Hmm. I don't know. In the state of Texas that's not illegal; 17 is age of consent. However, she's a senior in High School and you're well out of college...

Uhm. I'm not really an opponent of age differences, especially as people get older... I wouldn't do this, but that's me. One thing I would ask is why are you being so secretive? Relationships should never seem "wrong" or be "hidden" unless something unsavory is going on. If you feel you need to be hiding this, then you DO have a problem with it, inside, even if you really care about this girl...

Tread carefully. That's my advice.
