  • i believe the issue is you listening to these idiots... haven't you heard of people dating older... young guy-older woman, young girl-older man...
    it happens, keep your head down and love/respect your man and it should be all good... i mean... till y'all break up...

  • I'd be thinking in terms of years, not months. You're both 17. You're both the same age. And literal age doesn't mean much, because maturity can vary widely regardless of age anyway. My SO is 8 years older than me, and I am the more world-wise, mature one in the relationship, but he has the more traditional career/adult lifestyle. So he's the one in the relationship that everybody assumes is the more "adult," but I am the one managing the finances, making the investment decisions, etc.

    It's all just a matter of maturity, not age.

    • That's not to say, of course, that he's immature or stupid. :) On rereading, it kinda sounds like I was saying that. He's quite smart, he just acts much younger than he is. :)

  • Do those people expect you to only date someone who was born on the same day or something?

  • This is the biggest non-issue I've ever heard. My mom is 7 years older than my dad and they've been together for about 21 years.

  • It's not an issue. All my gfs except for one, have been month older than me. The oldest was almost 10 months older. No one ever said anything, and I never cared.

  • nah 5 months isn't a big deal. It's just more common that boys are older, but people must accept that there are exceptions to everything.

  • "Age is just a Number, Never should be a Remainder," and with this, being 'People laugh' at this Silly 'Fact,' Just remember This: They are still Wet behind the Ears in Years and may someday, find themselves in an even Bigger Same Scenario.
    Good luck and Pay them no mind. xx

    5 months isn't a difference at all.

  • Try 5 years. 5 months is nothing. If you're that worried about it, find a guy who's born on the exact same day and time as you. Good luck haha, you'll be looking for a while
