Follow 1 Last edited by JS; at Follow 2 This is me, I went out with a 16 year old lad when I was 20, some people are 21 Years Old Dating 16 Year Old at that age others not so much, he was the mature type. Last edited by indigofox; at Follow 3 Original post by JS Recently I was flicking through the black hole that is tinder.
I matched with a very attrative girl with who I had the most 'common connections' with than any other match.
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 link I have 21 Years Old Dating 16 Year Old 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 see more. 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.

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!
I knew how old he was! Recently news has surfaced that year-old soon to be year-old Herizen Fawn is dating a year-old. I wrote him a six page letter telling him exactly what I was seeing and how I felt. How to tell if someone fancies you. The fact that you would date him anyway if your parents didn't approve actually proves you aren't as responsible as you think because a responsible 16 year old would respect her parents' opinion.
Also she is 16 there is literally no future in it for you. 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 21 Years Old Dating 16 Year Old 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 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 read more which is fine.
However, sending any explicit images, or messages, may 21 Years Old Dating 16 Year Old be 'lawful', since she is under age. I would recommend for you to wait until she is 18, before progressing with this relationship.
Immediately after starting to date my ex I started not doing homework, skipping class to be with him and let my grades drop dramatically. Does this happen to anyone else? Of course it may be that hre also takes care of you, in which case, best of luck for the future.
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.
