I just found out my crush is 18. I'm 16?

I'm 16 and I have giant crush on this girl. We've smiled at each other twice. I want to start a conversation and become friends (and hopefully more). The problem is, I just found out she's 18. If you're 18, would you think about dating a 16 y/o? She probably thinks I'm older than 16. What should I do? I don't want to embarrass myself.

  • I wouldn't personally date a younger guy no matter how hot or famous he is. I would go for a minimum if one year younger. I'm not into
    younger guys. But hey everyone is different. Maybe she's okay with dating younger guys. Like Jennifer Lopez. Just message her up on social media or something and see how she replies to you. If she sounds interested or bored. Don't tell her your age right away. See how she talks to you first.

  • as a guy, and she's 18? thats odd and not very common. though hey if it works out more power too u. one of the hottest girls in my grade went out with a 16year old and got knocked up... lol long story but its funny. its still pretty rare though. normally the girl is the younger one. we "guys" are immature lol so they dont like us as we pups hehe. they are so sophisicated even as little girls...

  • I'm 16, and my ex boyfriend is 19. Doesn't matter at all.

    Even if she does mind, you shouldn't like her just because she's the only one showing any interest in you, I know it can be frustrating but just wait, don't settle for anything or anyone just because you haven't met anyone else. You'll find your perfect match.

  • I am not 18, but when I was I would date a 16 year old if I liked him and I found him interesting enough.

  • Go ahead dude, the gap is just 2 years, there's no problem with it. Take your chances and don't regret later for not trying to do anything.
