Is it okay for a 15 year old guy to date a 16 year old girl turning 17 in 1 month? She is exactly 1 year and 11 months older than me, is this that big of a difference?` I know this girl well, and i just turned 15 and she turns 17 next month. I think i am mentally mature for my age, and i also look older, so you…
You’re fine. The love is all that matters. “Age is just a number.”
Tom- Well, in the literal sense, both “age is just a number” and “prison is just a room” are true statements 😉 I do believe in age-difference limits, but in this Yahoo Question circumstance, the persons involved have merely a 1 year and 11 months age difference, which I personally see as acceptable, and apparently so does Australian law since it allows for a 24 month difference. If two people care for and love each other, their ages do not matter because they are not seeking to take advantage of the other person. Perverts and molestors are of a different case; they deserve prison because their intentions are solely to satisfy their twisted desires, which thereby abuse others.
It seems that you’re just within the 24 month difference. Even so, I would advise you to wait until you are at at least 16 before having sex (unless of course you already have). The laws are no different when it is the male who is youngest.
Make sure that now – or when you do – your girlfriend goes on birth control, as whilst you may be ready for a relationship, you are certainly not ready to be parents.
That aside – you are both perfectly fine to be seeing each other.
Uuuhh, I don’t really support this kind of thing, you know, the girl being older… But I’ll try to be neutral and objective.
To be fair, if you like a girl and feel close to her, you have the right to be together and do all shorts of stuff. Plus, it’s not illegal. (from what you have said)
I personally advise you to take your time with it.
But hey, If you like her and she likes you, go ahead. You are an adolescent, it’s only natural you are interested in the opposite sex, as well as sexual contact…. Intimacy was never considered a crime! ;D
I think that’s okay. I mean my guy was 17 and I was 14 turning 15. My parents werent too happy. But if she doesn’t have a problem with it go for it. I wish you the best of luck:)
I’m with a boy who is 2 years and 4 months older than me, there is nothing wrong with it. If you like her go for it 🙂
Can’t see any problems with that, though personally I’d be cautious about taking it sexually at your age. (Or at all, seeing as I don’t really agree with or condone sex before marriage, but it’s your choice.)
Such an age difference shouldn’t really matter, as long as you like the girl and she likes you, certainly not that late in your teens and it will only matter less as you get older.
hey, i live in aus to and i find that it is fine to date someone older than u and have sex with em to. if u like her, then i wouldnt really worry about it its fine….. 🙂
btw, i 15 to and i dated 16 yr old guys and it was fine
Nice. Well played
stacie- “age is just a number” so that means prison is just a room
