CONFRONTING our AGE Difference! *GOLD DIGGER EXPOSED*
2 Oct When I was 15, I dated plenty of older guys (no, I wasn't sexually active). 21 was about midway on the spectrum. I definitely would not have dated a 15 year old boy. Maturity levels were not remotely compatible. BUT I was for all practical purposes an adult and moved out of my parents house to go to college at So it was a. This peer culture is not only amongst college students, but it may start to develop around the time puberty starts in middle school for both genders around the age of eleven to fourteen years old. In general, puberty is a time when sexuality and body awareness becomes a main focus for individuals to formulate this aspect of . 15 Dec In State B, sex with an individual under 16 years of age is illegal if the other party is four or more years older. Thus, sexual relations between a year-old and an year-old would be legal, while the same relationship between a year-old and a year old would not. Minimum age of victim. Some state.
Source Australia, underage sex is called statutory rape as the above poster said. Yes you will get opinions because this is a public forum and you can't dictate how people reply. Just look at it from your parents' perspective and consider why they may be concerned about the age difference. From our point of view it was great - we were all best buddies that saw no age difference! So a 14 year old having "relations" with a 20 year old isn't called statutory rape?

Is It Weird To Like 16 & 17 Year Olds?
I've began messaging and after the usual small talk and flirtatious banter she told me she was actually 16 and not 19 as her profile had said. I didn't said its a little weird but we continued talking, I had no intentions of taking things further. We were literally just talking. She shares almost every view I have on a political and philosophical level as well as a smiliar taste in music mine is super obscure as well as art and film.
She added me on Facebook and from there we have been chatting a lot.
We will talk on FaceTime or a phone call for 5 hours. Discussion different things from hobbys and interests to personnel aspirations. She's told me she likes me. And I like her back. That I can't decide. I know guys with the same 5 year gap and they had no worries doing it. I know people who were 25 and 16 and have been going strong for a few years now but it still feels weird and I can't decide what to do. I definitely want to keep her in my life even if just as a friend but I would prefer to be intimate.
I know we aren't breaking any laws if we do decide to get together but the gap is literally keeping me awake at night.
Follow 4 Last edited by XiuXiu; at Follow 5 Follow 6 Follow 7 You a paedo lad? Follow 8 You should bear in mind that at 16 she's very likely to change political beliefs etc as she really doesn't know a lot about the world yet. The fact she's got strong political beliefs and so on at 16 says to me she's either very mature OR she's not being straight with you and just agreeing with everything you say.
I don't know which. To me the important thing isn't age but where you are in life. I just find it strange that a 16 year old in school would similar short term aims and ambitions to a 21 year old who has finished uni and is working a graduate job for example. If you're in 6th form and uni then it's less of a difference but in my opinion still too much. Follow 9 Moura Follow 14 followers 18 badges Send a private message to Moura. Follow 10 Not acceptable in any way!!! She isn't even an adult yet!
Also she is 16 there is literally no future in it for you.
Ashlee, if you didn't want honest opinions, then you should have stayed on a teen website. Studies have shown that most high here girls are more interested in a relationship compared to high school boys, who are mostly interested in sex. Sign in to join this conversation New here? All i know is it CAN work out as a couple with a large Age gap.
You will not be her last boyfriend if you go through with this. Saying she's mature for a 16 year old doesn't make her an adult!
She is still of school age and you're old enough to be a graduate with a full time job If you go through with it you will get a lot of adversity from people thinking you're a creep and tbh I wouldn't blame them. I wonder what her parents would think. Last edited by Moura; at Follow 11 Nicoley-oley Follow 3 followers 3 badges Send a private message to Nicoley-oley.

Firstly, to address the age gap: More specifically, she is underage to consent.
You have to be 18 before you are able to legally consent to anything that is why you cannot sign contracts until then, etc. Casual conversations, meet-ups that is, meeting at a Coffee shop, or restaurant in A 21 Year Old Hookup A 16 Year Old public placeand discussions is fine - provided they aren't overly sexualand, you keep your distance e.
My advice to you is this: At this time, you can do whatever you want, but while she is 16, you have to be particularly careful about what you say, and do, with this person. Just because other people are doing it, does not mean you should too. They could be breaking the law. In summary, you can continue speaking to her - which is fine. However, sending any explicit images, or messages, may not be 'lawful', since she is under age.
I would recommend for you to wait until she is 18, before progressing with this relationship. Lastly, here's some advice for you take: People on TSR including myself can only 'guide' you, but we do not know exactly what is best in these situations.
Follow 18 I'm 21, and I would never date a 16year old. But then again, I'm a girl though so it might be different. Follow 19 Original post by the bear tbh even if she says she is 16 she could be younger Original post by cherryred90s I'm 21, and I would never date a 16year old.
