Nah. Most men throughout human history would have that attraction. It made sense for natural selection to program us to be attracted to girls around the time they can start having children.

Nothing has changed biologically. Only the laws have changed. I grew up here in Ontario, Canada, where the age of consent was 14. Most Americans have it nailed into their brains from their own laws that it's wrong for an adult to be with a girl under 18, but you're probably only going to think that if you've been brought up in a place where that is the law. Canada and so many other countries laugh at that age of consent and think it is ridiculous and way overkill.

You said before that Chloe Grace Moretz is stunning. You really think that in ten years, looking back at pictures of her right now she's going to go from "stunning" in your mind to "not attractive at all"? The last girl I was with was 23, but I have no problem admitting that I find a girl like Chloe stunning as well.

Yes. That's exactly what I think. She looks like a little girl with underdeveloped features and in my mind the accompanying mental immaturity that I find wholly unattractive well into my 30's. I spend most my days on a college campus with thousands of 18-19 year girls that I'm rarely attracted to.

nicely said, sir. i do think there may be more to the story, however, such as psychological mechanisms that we modern humans may be a bit prone to.

specifically i mean things like the inner longing for those with the bloom of youth. also, since this anti-establishment culture of ours elevates children in to positions of import, our longing for those in the 'cool' set. anyway, yea... stuff like that all mixed together.

a single slip in this arena and your career and home life may be wrecked. at least in the states...

You seriously aren't attracted purely sexually to college freshman and sophomores? Sounds wild to me.

Nah. Perception changes drastically during your 20s. What is cool to you now begins to suck and what you think sucks now begins to get cool. Parts of you will stay the same no doubt, but your interests will change - and you won't actually give a fuck when they do, you will embrace it. You might get nostalgic from time to time and wish you could be young again, but then you realize all of the stupid shit that comes along with being young.
