You're at the age of consent, you will have left school by now into the adult world of work and further education college where you are now responsible for your own life and making decisions. Your friend is ignorant; lacking knowledge or awareness in general; uneducated or unsophisticated. No, it is just not common and because it is not common a lot of people seem to think it must therefore be weird and creepy and wrong hence your friend calling him names. The age gap would suggest that it is a surprising relationship given that the difference in age is most noticeable between teens and early twenties as you are not fully matured yet whereas he would now be considered an adult. It's only 'dodgy' if you think he's got some ulterior motive for being interested in you and if he ever does or tries to do anything you are not comfortable with then say so and question why he thought it would be ok to do so. No, it's not wrong or illegal in UK.
In college I studied Computer Science and forgot how to talk to women. As the only straight woman within reach, I soon became the de facto dating consultant for my male friends, despite my waning expertise. But what I soon realized was that sometimes the best way to date is to go off script. We had more important things to worry about, like the alarming decay rate of our attractiveness. If we graduated without a future husband in tow, the men in our class would forgo us for younger, dumber women. She advised we start the search as early into college as possible. Um, I thought, petting my two-years-younger boyfriend.
