I'm 17 and he's 14. Is this weird?

So I have a crush on a 14 year old guy and I'm 17 (I'm using my friend's account, so ignore the age). My friends think it's weird, but I don't feel like I'm talking to a 14 year old whenever I talk to him. He's really smart and he's going to college after a year (before me). I think he likes me too but I'm not sure. He's really shy so I know I'll have to make the first move. I'll probably have to pay for our dates too, and I'm fine with that. We obviously won't be having sex. So should I go for it?

Thanks for all your opinions. They were all helpful :)

  • Careful dating minors after you're 18. That stuff can throw you in jail. I didn't know that until one of my friends randomly brought that up so I figured I should run that by ya lol.
    Anyway as long as there isn't anything sexual until after he's 18, you're fine. I don't find it weird because 3 years is not much on me, however since you're 17 I'd understand that's a little abnormal. Do what makes you happy, not your friends.

  • It's socially acceptable for a 17 yo guy to go out with a 14 yo girl so I don't see why it won't be the other way round. You do you! Go for it if it's what you want

  • That seems fine to me, but once you turn 18, then it's going to be a little difficult.

    And yes I think it is weird.

    • Well he is pretty mature. More than some of the guys my age

    • Do you really think he is that exceptional?
      Do you really think he is the best candidate for you, and you both do have a future together? Or you just want to try stuff?
      I think you should answer these questions to your self before him does, as you are the more mature and experienced one.

  • If that's what makes you happy do it, don't look at what other people think, it's your life and happiness after all :)

    • We're not doing anything sexual though

    • Doesn't matter, in they eyes of the law, it's illegal once you're 18

  • Do what makes you happy. It's not that big of a deal. If you like him, don't let it go to waste.
