I don't think this should be under the relationship thread but let me know if it should.

Here's my situation:
I'm 14 and I'm dating a 17 year old girl, both of our parents are cool with it. But this leads me to my question. What do you personally think about dating outside of consent laws?

I don't see a problem with my situation, but I know people my age that are dating people that are 20 and I think that's a bit too much of a difference. Not only is it a bit wrong, it's too much of a gap in maturity.

So, what does the pit think?

I really don't care who people choose to date, but I would strongly recommend staying in accordance to the half+7 rule. And if violation of consent laws becomes an issue, better be damned careful about it.
There will probably be a signature here at some point.

My friend is 18 and half and his girlfriend just turned 16, both there parents are cool with it but I still see it as illegal, but then again I could care less. I myself am almost 18 and my girlfriend just turned 16 that I see no problem with even though soon ill be a pedo....

If it was a younger girl and an older guy you'd all be calling him a pedohile. For shame, pit. For shame.

It's couldn't! If you could care less, it means you care at all, if you couldn't care less, then you don't care at all already. Sorry, but that drives me spare.

Anywho, I think as long as they've hit puberty, so around the age of 12 or 13, then someone should be able to date anyone they want. Although there might be a big maturity gap, it's their choice and nobody forces it upon them. They chances of these relationships working out is pretty damn low.

Yeah I think there's a certain point where it's too much.

I think that's kind of funny how that works. I do hate the fact that most girls just date older guys because they have a car + can get them cigarettes.

i used to be 14 and had a 18 yr old girl.....and now i m 18 and have a 16 yr old girl....i only think its wrong when like...you know you act like a pedo
meaning that you know you have a car or whatever or like an income and you use that to "wow" a girl into being your girlfriend(usually saying shes more mature than her friends and that she "gets" to be your gf).
#16
As long as you (and other people in your situation) can be mature and smart about it then yes. Now if you (or others) are gonna start breeding like rats and shitting out babies then no. We have enough people on this damn planet we dont need more. But i feel this way about any relationship really so idk why i posted it here but since ive already typed this much theres no way im not gonna post this now.

High Five!

I'll be seventeen in less than two weeks, and I could see myself with someone fourteen. That is, if they're a really, really hot fourteen year-old.

Idk about USA, but in Australia the consent age is 16.
And props to whoever corrected the "could care less."

Just, no. Locrian should be treated like that gay cousin. Just avoid him cuz he's weird, unstable, and is attracted to the wrong thing.

Depends on the situation. Usually no but there can be exceptions.

i think its ok to date no matter what age, but obviously when your younger its no as serious

and if youre both under 16 of course no sex
well thats the age in the UK for it

This reminded me of me in a way.

I dated a 15 year old when I first turned 18. She was taller than me though. Both my parents and her parents were okay with it. We didn't have sex though but I wouldn't have morally held back if the relationship had gotten to that point. The maturity gap bothered me though. At the same time, I know age doesn't equal maturity. For example I know my ex-girlfriend at 15 is less mature than another girl I know who is 14 both in looks and brains.

There is a certain point where an age different is just too much. Like a 14 could date a 17 year old and maybe even an 18 year old but after that I think you are pushing it. TS, I think your situation is okay. I hate to have double standards but I think it is even less of a big deal because the younger person is a male. I think it has to do with the mentality of males versus females if you see where I'm going with this.

I'd imagine if you two get a long, its okay But then again, because your at different ages, the way you will act and think is may be different from each other.

Well I had a friend in highschool who was dating a college girl. She wasn't that hot. I really have no idea why such a mature girl would go for a freshman.

I think its fine; but the whole a 13 year-old dating a 21 year-old is jacked up...but if you're in your 20's and dating someone that much older than you, then go for it..what ever floats your boat..Like someone said earlier, its the gap in the maturity stage that determines a lot, but also just plain gross.

I dunno, depends how mature they people involved are.. it's usaully frowned upon if the guy is older, yet it's not if the girl is.. unfair i say, it should work both ways, either way.

im 20 and i'd say the limit would be 17 any younger and it'd just seem wrong.. urgh saying that i was on holiday recently and shared the apartment with some people and had a 15 year old chick come onto me like everday.. yea try having some really hot chick walk around in her under wear and try and jump into your bed at night... wasted chance.. i think not, i just saved myself a jail sentece

So if a grown man has sex with a 12 yr old boy, it's legal? Where do you go to school?

No, there's also an age of consent for gay sex. So guys of any age are legally allowed to have sex with a woman who's over 16
