This is me, I went out with a 16 year old lad when I was 20, some people are mature at that age others not so much, he was the mature type.
Evaluate the relationship
Report 4 years ago 3. Original post by JS Recently I was flicking through the black hole that is tinder. I matched with a very attrative girl with who I had the most 'common connections' with than any other match. I've began messaging and after the usual small talk and flirtatious banter she told me she was actually 16 and not 19 as her profile had said.
I didn't said its a little weird but we continued talking, I had no intentions of taking things further. We were literally just talking. She shares almost every view I have on a political and philosophical level as well as a smiliar taste in music mine is super obscure as well as art and film. She added me on Facebook and from there we have been chatting a lot. We will talk on FaceTime or a phone call for 5 hours. Discussion different things from hobbys and interests to personnel aspirations.
She's told me she likes me. And I like her back. It's just weird.
Is it alright? That I can't decide. I know guys with the same 5 year gap and they had no worries doing it.
Legal age of consent
I know people who were 25 and 16 and have been going strong for a few years now but it still feels weird and I can't decide what to do. I definitely want to keep her in my life even if just as a friend but I would prefer to be intimate. I know we aren't breaking any laws if we do decide to get together but the gap is literally keeping me awake at night. XiuXiu Badges: Report 4 years ago 4. Completely fine imo. Report 4 years ago 5.

The fact she's got strong political beliefs and so on at 16 says to me she's either very mature OR she's not being straight with you and just agreeing with everything you say. I don't know which. To me the important thing isn't age but where you are in life.
I just find it strange that a 16 year old in school would similar short term aims and ambitions to a 21 year old who has finished uni and is working a graduate job for example.
