Theres this guy I'm interested in, and he's 21, but I'm only 16. He likes me too, and he keeps swearing if we hung out, he wouldn't make me do something I don't wanna do, and doesn't wanna make me feel uncomfortable. I know I shouldn't really go out with him or anything, and I don't think I'm going to.. but is it still okay to hang out with him and all that, despite the age difference?
Most Helpful Guy
Hanging out with him is fine. Dating him is where is where people might raise an eyebrow. Though to be honest in two years hardly anyone would care. The age gap between me and my girlfriend is wider than yours with him, and we're fine together. Though we started dating when she was 19 and it's kinda a non-issue at that point.
Anyway the point here is, if you just wanna be his friend, and you think he's a cool enough guy to hang with, then hang out with him. No big deal. After all you're just friends. If you want something more, and you really think something can come of it, then age is just a number, for the most part, and all you need to do is remember that in two years nobody will care.
Think about it. In the mean time I hope this was enlightening. Good luck.0
