Is it bad for a 17 (almost 18)-year old to be dating a 15 year old?

I'm a senior and she's a sophomore and we both go to the same high school. In my past, I've dated girls who were of my age. Now, since I'm almost to that "legal" age in my life, I'm wondering if it's smart for me to be dating a girl who going to stay a minor for another 2 and 1/2 years. Advice please?

  • Well things in my country aren't unusual at all. That is actually normal. Many people have girls who are younger and a minor.

  • I don't think it's odd, since you two go to the same school. Even the age difference doesn't seem like a big deal. It's very easy to meet people and date them when they go to the same school. The law won't affect you once you turn 18. The max age difference in most places is 21/16...that is if one person is 21, the youngest they can date or have sex with is 16.
