relationship advice (post new situation)
I am 16 years old. Even though I am younger, majority of my friends are older. I just find it easier to talk to older people because they know what is going on and they've been through it all.But about a month ago I started hanging out with a guy I work with.He is twenty years old. i wasn't expecting anything out of our friendship because of the whole age difference. But after getting to know him, i knew he was just such an amazing person that I had to be with him. So he soon asked me out, and we are now dating. We have been going out for 1 week now, and things have been going great. Most of our friends understand our situation, but there is always some that dont approve of it. So im just wondering if I am in the right by dating him..or if i should just forget about it.

i agree that age is only a number, but... it depends on the age span. four years isn't too awful bad. a good way to measure something is this: if you are having to hide it from people, it might be worth considering not doing whatever you're having to hide... i hope that makes sense.

age is not JUST a number. there is a huge maturity difference between those ages. ive been there. ive done that and trust me, its NOT worth it. i promise. do what makes you happy but wouldnt you be weirded out if one of your 16 year old friends was dating a 12 year old? it is the same

just be careful. make sure that you talk to him about things you do and don't want. watch out for yourself and make it clear to him what a relationship means to you. you are young, so live it up...just don't do anything you're gonna regret in the future. good luck! :)
