My boyfriend originally said that he was 17 years old, about to turn 18, but after a while he came out and said that he is actually 21 year old man, and I am 16 year old girl. I know about the law, yadda yadda, but I am kind of frustrated that he didn't tell me this earlier. Should I forgive him? I love him to death, and he was crying because he loves me too, and didn't want me to leave him for such an unfortunate reason. We don't have sexual contact, we only cuddle and kiss, but my parents don't know. What do I do? I love him and don't want him to go.

Did he know your age before he told you his fake age? If so, you could give him the benefit of the doubt and guess he just lied because he was afraid you wouldn't wanna have anything to do with him if you knew his real age, and he liked you too much to risk that. From what you've said you've been together for a while, and he never pushed you to have sex, so we can rule out the possibility of him being a pedo who does this to young girls on a regular basis.
However, please be careful, because there is some truth to the phrase "once a liar, always a liar"... You have to make sure that he is honest from now on, even if it is unpleasant. And I would definitely ask to see his ID to make sure he's not even older than 21...0
