I just noticed something. Those age gaps get more and more insignificant as you get older. Take this age gap: 5 years. If a 11yo was to date a 16yo, everyone would lose their shit. But if it's a 40yo and 45yo, no one thinks it's weird, it's completely normal. I think I'm going to get mixed responses for 14-19.

I don't think it's a "massive" deal, as long as they both treat the relationship with some level of parlance and maturity.
Most 14 year old girls I've met seem to be okay with it anyway, though the problem is teens around that age are horny as shit and end up letting their hormones dictate things for them, so it becomes this weird scenario where you've got a horny 14 year old essentially wanting to fuck a legal adult and ehh... I dunno.
Again, not against it, it just requires the right mindset.1

You're right it won't matter once you're older... But you're not older. It's 5 years! You're in what 6th 7th grade? And he's in college if he even went.
It's just wrong sex will be next which is illegal and he'll only be using you. Not to mention the fact that you're not mature haven't fully went through puberty yet and he has. Oh and more than likely you're gonna break up and it hurts like hell when you lose someone around your age so think about when he leaves you for someone gos own age or older because you couldn't do things that he can.0
