  • Yeah when shes 22 and hes 28!
  • yes you can, consequences? it depends on what you do, what your family allows and how smart you guys are.
  • if he wants to receive jail sentence then yes.lol
  • If we do not have sex it would be ok wouldnt it???
  • yeah, might be considered improper by those around you though, but you can.
  • Depending on the laws of her state, she can. But it's not advisable. Any twenty-something who wants to date teenage girls is either not trustworthy or very immature. This is experience talking - don't do it.
  • yeh if hes rich =]
  • Funny.. we were just talking about a similar case. If her parents agree to it, I don't see why not. But, the law sees it differently in most states. Example: a new teacher starts teaching in a school where his long time neighbor and girlfriend is a senior. Some parents got a whiff of their dating (they were not obvious about it and he did not teach her... nor did he see her during the school day). He lost his teaching certificate, was charged by the state for numerous counts because she was a minor.
  • Dating is legal for any age.
  • I hope so.... I did that once...
  • im having the same problem. but i feel that it is okay. if u like him then do it. Jus try not to have any sex until you are legal!
  • Hey guys! well I can share information regarding this on a personal basis...i'm currently a 17yo female, junior in hs, dating a 23yo, we started dating wen I was 16 and he was 22 though. & the sad truth of the matter is that yeah if you're under legal age and there is a greater than 3yr age gap btw the 2 of u, then he get charged with statutory rape for engaging in sex which, depending on what state u reside in carries outrageous penalties of up to 11yrs in prison! Also along side that if the girl's parents have clearly forbidden the relationship or even any form of contact btw the 2 of u, then the guy can also b charged with aiding in the deliquency of a minor. So yes my boyfriend is @ extremely high risk because there's no way in hell we're not having sex haha! A major portion of our attraction towards 1 another involves our age gap. I'm a sub/masochist & he's a dom/sadist, and the fact of our ages literally creating that scenario only makes it that much more erotic... & I can tell what you're thinking..."oh poor girl, look what this guy's done to her..it's for reasons such as the aforementioned that these laws were established..." & that couldn't b farther from the truth! Please do not be that ignorant as to place all 16 & 17yos in the same category...i guarantee when comparing urself to others who share ur age you find a vast variety in maturity levels, well the same applies to 16 & 17yos!! I personally only know 1 other girl who I would deem as precocious as me! & frankly my boyfriend would've NEVER lasted with me for the 11 months we've now been together, moreover even regarded me as anything more than a good fuck, had I been at the maturity level of the great majority of girls my age. He's a senior @ Northwestern University who's going 2 b graduating this upcoming spring w/a degree in premed and will b continuing on to northwestern's medical school the following fall. & for those of u who no absolutely anything about Northwestern then u'd know there's no way in hell u'd make it in, w/o some other pull ofcourse, if you weren't highly intellectual.
  • If a guy overage wants to risk a jail sentence.
  • Not without risking him jailtime if you do anything physical.

  • Not legally.
  • yes..here in the state of NEVADA 16 is the age of consent. dating,sexual intercourse or whatever Its LEGAL!
  • as long as she's loaded...
  • MOST states are 16 some may have strings attached. Your best bet it to find out at age of consent dot com ....My husband is 43 yrs older than me..we have known each other for 5 yrs, dating for 3 and married for two and a half still going strong. You should not care what others think..everyone has an opinion and just remember this..you may have a negative opinion about their lifestyle, or morals. YOU do what feels right and good..live for you...you will be much happier in the end
  • I would have to ask wat state are u guys in becuz some states have legal age at that rate u guys are in.Becuz in Florida if u are 16 or older u can date a guy from da ages 18-24 so thats a state law in florida for dating but like i said it depends on wat state u live in???
  • Yes, You can date him. However, if you are going to have intercourse, it might be illegal. Many states have different age limits, who is considered an adult. If you are in love, and have intercourse, nothing will happen to you, unless a parent brings charges against the man you are dating. Good Luck..
  • legally: no but if you really love each other what's so bad?
  • I am a 17 year old girl and i am dating a 22 year old guy. And every one on my dads side of my family has a problem with it. Well let me tell you some thing i love the guy im with he treats me better then any other boy my age would. So if you care about the person your with and you treat them right and they treat you right there should be no reason and/or person to stop you from being happy. And i checked in the state of Florida it is legal for a 16 year old girl to date a 23 year old guy so whats wrong with a 17 year old girl dating a 22 year old guy? NOTHING AT ALL.
  • You can date him. Just remember something, When you date someone thats a big age difference, it changes the way you think and feel about certain things. I man that is 22 is actually just as mature as you(guys mature slowly) so that part is ok. But coming from a woman (now 35) that started dating 45 year olds when I was 19 (holla!) I knwo what it did to me. It was an Eye oopener, and I was lookin for a daddy(mine had died suddenly when I was 17), I knwo now, I am now dating and going to marry a man my age, and I am very happy. Look Baby, date, but be careful. Thats it.
  • Sure, as long as you’re not planning to have extramarital sex. If you do, that could bring up a whole host of complications—legal and otherwise.
  • As I should say: You can be friends going places and teaching and talking to each other about life and where you want to eat or see a movie, all you 2 can handle, but no getting married until you're above 17 years of age.
  • I'm in that situation right now, I am going to wait until I'm 18, so theres no problems with family cause yr almost grown up and no problems legally cause yr not a minor in other words your free! Ya never know u might grow out of him until then
  • Absolutely not. A 16 year old is not viewed (by federal statutes) as old enough to consent. The 22 y/o risks being labeled as a sex offender. Besides, meet someone your own age. Why be a perv?
  • OMG...you really had to go for a child? I'm sure that their are many other people out there your age. Seriously, she's just a baby and she's not even legal as an adult yet! Move on and find someone who's the same age group.
  • depends on were you live
  • Though there are many different schools of thought on this, I personally think there is nothing wrong with it at all. I am 16, and I'm sure plenty of people will agree that because of my age I'm not mature enough to judge the matter. They are entitled to their opinion but the fact is that you can't help who you fall in love with. I look much older than my actual age and therefore the only guys who are attracted to me are those typically 21 and above, I've become very used to this and am now primarily attracted to much older guys anyway. There is a difference between a commited couple with signifigant age difference, and a pedophile who wants sex from a young and naive girl. If there is a mutal connection and the relationship isn't based on sex, there is nothing wrong with it. The law differs in many states and it fails to custom fit each person's situation as far as what constitutes as statutory rape. I live in NY, the age of consent is 17, but not all 17 year olds are mature enough for an older guy, and not all (let's say 15 year olds)are too immature for an older guy. It depends on who you are as a person, and how you handle yourself. If you are in love with someone, society's opinion doesn't matter, and the law doesn't apply forever. It's only been considered inappropriate in the last century or so, look back in history, age difference never used to be taboo.
  • As long as her parents are willing to put money on his books when he goes to prison.
  • Of course. What's stopping you? Of course if you have sex you're going to jail, but the important thing is that you can!
  • Dating is not the same thing as having sex.
  • yes as long as you do not have sex its only illegal if you have sex with a minor although i don't think this is a good idea it is legal as long as u guys do not have any kind of sex
  • i think a 17 year old girl should be able to cause im 17 and i fell in love with a 22 year old guy that loves me for me not what i got he treats me better and cares more about me than half my friends half my family and treats me better than them too............so it should be ok no matter what anyone says
  • I keep putting comments in the answer box. It's frustrating.
  • I'm totally with you in your answers. I sometimes wonder why all of these age questions ask about 'dating' as if that's the issue. It isn't the issue. I agree that many people date without having sex. I also think that innocent people should be left alone. You charge people after a crime has been committed, or step in when a crime is known to be in the planning stage. I think people should be looked at individually. Belonging to a statistical demographic doesn't make someone suspicious, as foot seems to think.
  • now what hap if the guy was 23 and the chik was 16, but there was no sexual intercourse just the playing around in bed, kissin cuddlin teasin, just not the actual intercourse, what would u all say to that
  • If she is a Minor, it is ok to fall in love with her, only if you really love her, and not because she got a nice ass, or big boobs, and then you just want her to be your fu***** mate...But make sure as a guy, you know what you re doing, bcos as a minor for her, she might not ve all the experience, so you re ahead of her in everyway, and then let her know wrong from right. You are not to take her for granted, and mislead her doing what she don't have any experience about. As a matured guy, you are expected to act like a man, that is why any moms would allow her daughter (who is a minor) to date an older guy..Because he acted like a man. not a coward. I like this 16yrs old girl in my compound, and she acts as if she knows it all as a girl and she don't at all, but even if i was to date her, i wouldn't take her for granted jst bcos she was unexeprienced. I am 23 now, and unfortunately, i like them older...YEEEEEEEEEHA.
  • sorry. this is an accidental post and there's no way to delete.
  • NO I have the same problem relaying this message to my little sister but here it goes! Girls under 18 should stay away from guys over 18 because 9 out of 10 times these guys have done more sexually for one. Most of the time they date younger girls for control , and three you put yourself and him in a position where you face jail time. All you young girls on here talking about im 17 he's 25 and nothing's wrong with it just don't understand the bigger scheme of things and the pain you can cause yourself!
  • well..im 16 and my boyfriend is 22..and my parents find that as rape and want to put a restrainging order on him but i dont know how to stop them..i love him..we will be 2 years in july..so yea..and if people have a problem with what we share..oh well..dont judge a book by its cover..
  • yes of COURSE,im 16 anD DATEN a 22 YR OLd--HES guNA B 23 ON valENTINES dAY AND im TURNEN 17 IN NOV,,,IS PERFECTLY FINE as LONG as U knOE WUT UR DOEN>>ENOUGH sAID
  • I dated a 24 yr old Hells angel at that age. now that Im in my twenties I find it a bit deluded, and strange. There not much a 24 yr old should have in commom with a 16 yr old, especially a bedroom. I'm very grateful I outgrew him.
  • I find myself struggling with this as well not only do i have age but i have race involved im white and shes ethiopian. We dont want to have sex and havent known each other long but she is very mature for her age and we want only to be happy and be best friends. There really is nothing wrong with it. If a 21 year old can have intercourse with a 40 year old then why cant a six year difference be tolerated. The younger generation is smarter anyway. Take a look around you you cannot tell me that everyone even the police who arrest those convicted of these crimes date right within a year or two of their age. I can see how it may be shameful but develope a connection and wait. Sex aint nothing but a thing and honestly my girl is a virign and has values that i respect and want her to follow through with and wait for marriage whether it be with me or someone else. All that is important is that the two of you are happy. Being older you should keep her from making the same mistakes that you have and as she gets older and smarter she will be a wonderful woman. Its always best to ask the parents. Let them meet you let them know their little girl will be okay. Follow the kurfew dont be a dick respect her and care for her. Develop a friendship dont rush spend time outdooors keep your mind off sex. I can not stress intentions. Im not like other guys i actually give a shit about a womans values and morales. Just dont have sex and keep your relationship to yourself no one has to know. Best of luck and remember respect fuckers.
  • i think its fine im 16 turnin 17 in oct n my man 20 turnin 21 innov n we r in love who cares wat others think as long that ur happy
  • Okay guys.. i googled this because i am a 22yr old guy and i may have honestly fallen for a girl i thought was 19/20 but turned out to be 16. let me explain, i met her at a convention, we ended up talking for about 4 hours straight! we live about 8 hours away and i havnt seen her since, but we have chatted and called each other nearly everyday. i only found out she was 16 a week in.. i really like her.. im not sure if i should repress my feelings or give in to them... i read the previous posts.. and, well.. its a really long distance relationship for me (she'll be over seas for a year or so from next month) so its not like im going to take advantage of her or anything.. not that i would.. in my country she legal but im still having mixed emotions.. i think i'm just looking for some form of confirmation or permission even.. not sure what i'm gonna do.. now that i think about it she is like a very good friend that i want to hold, keep safe and love... She is important to me.. i dont what her to be removed from my life... guess i'll just see how things go... still not sure what i'm gonna do, but it would be great to hear your opinions though..
