Question Posted Wednesday January 31 2007, 6:51 pm
okay well i'm 13 & the guy i like is 16. is that bad?? like he gives me signs that he likes me too but all my friends are going "laura, he's 16." & i go "so?". i just want to know if that is too much of an age difference.
It just seems huge because 13 is the youngest age for a teenager, whereas 16 seems alot older - you can drive and you got alot of priviliges. Plus, whenever kids think ages, they associate them with grades too. So they think a seventh grader dating a tenth or eleventh grader sounds like a huge deal, but it's not.
Me and my boyfriend are like, two years apart. He's going to college next year, and I still got two years of highschool to go.
And who cares what your friend say anyways? You like him and that's all that should matter. They should just be happy for you.

It doesnt mean hes a child molestor and it doesnt mean your daydreaming. it can happen trust me. (when my boyfriend was a senior i was in 6th grade) [ Sleepy's advice column | Ask Sleepy A Question ]

keep in mind though, every single guy is different. these people don't even know him. so, we have no idea which type he is. i sometimes agree with that 'age is just a number' thing & all but with our world today...? i disagree most of the time.

jealous. But make sure he's a nice guy and wont hurt you before you decide to give it a try.
Swiss answered Wednesday January 31 2007, 7:27 pm: I think it's fine. I'm fourteen and I like a guy who's sixteen. You've got nothing to worry about. If you really like him and he likes you, there's never really an excuse for age difference (I don't mean to offend anyone, but 20 or 30 years is a lot). But no, you're fine. It's a great feeling when you like someone and you're in love. You shouldn't be deprived of that. Go for it! [ Swiss's advice column | Ask Swiss A Question ]
christina answered Wednesday January 31 2007, 7:23 pm: Honey, age is nothing but a number. Honestly, I'm gonna be 16 soon, and in a few months, my boyfriend will be 21. Age is nothing to us. I love him, he loves me.
If you really like this guy, then go out with him & who cares what your friends say. Besides, there are people who more than 5 years apart. So don't even worry about it. And there's nothing wrong with dating an older man. =)
