Dating a 16 year old
(Before you ask, I'm not worried about the legal stuff because the age of consent where I live is 16.Not interested in things getting sexual anyway.)First off, we're a little over 3 years apart.(I'm in Canada, age of consent is 16, so all is well legally) My morals were conflicted, but she doesn't look 16, and she doesn't act like a 16 year old... We've been together about 9 months now, and I haven't looked back since.People gave me shit for it almost every time they heard how old she was, but you just gotta brush it off.We aren't dating yet, but we've shown mutual interest in each other.I would very much like for this person to be a part of my life.Unfortunately, as a freshman in college who is turning 20 in four months, I feel extremely weird in this position, and the friends I've spoken to about it don't support me. I'll turn 20 three months before she turns 17, and even though that's just three months apart, being a 20 year old dating a 16 year old still makes me feel weird.I certainly don't feel 20, and one year ago I was still in high school, but I can't argue with the numbers, and the numbers say that I'm a creep.
But even then, she'll still be in high school. I don't think I'm willing to date her at this exact point in time.I mean I had friends that were in highschool, he was a senior and he dated a freshmen and they ended up dating for 4 years before getting married so the circumstances wasn't weird for at all. Actually we started dating when i was 17 and she was 14-15 and then i was 18 when she was 15.
