Okay so there's this girl whom I have met recently and we had started talking as friends, and she's pretty great. We have the same kind of personalities, the same interests, etc. so it would make sense for us to date because we would be pretty compatible. But the problem is that she's too young for me. She's 15 while I'm turning 19 in March (I had only found out about her age a few days ago). I don't flirt with her, I only did like once when we had first started talking but only because she said something flirtatious to me first, so I said something back but I wasn't really serious about it. We've been talking for about 2-3 weeks now (as friends) and I don't want her to end up falling for me and later accusing me of leading her on, because I've been lead on before and I know how shitty that feels. I want to keep her as a friend, but just as that. Had she been a couple years older, things would be different, but yeah she's too young for me and I do not want to deal with all the legal troubles and stuff. This is the first time I've really been in this situation, and I don't know how to tell her that I am not interested in her like that without coming off as harsh. :/

Just be friends. Don't say anything unless it comes up.
I met my husband when I was 16 and he was 20, and although we were very compatible and attracted to each other, it just wasn't the right time. We were friends for ten loooonnnng years before we finally started dating and we've been together for ten (married 7) years!1
