As someone who is 20, the amount of personal growth and maturity I've gained over those 4 years is astounding. A 16 year old is so young compared to me, and if I were to date one, it'd be so damn creepy, because there's so much room for me to take advantage of someone just due to the ability to manipulate someone that is still in so many ways a kid. And I'm not being high and mighty, I'm just thinking of how stupid I was back then. Back then I was pressured into my first sex act, and it was the shittiest experience in my life. And it was so easy to do too. Imagine if I used that, and did that to someone that age just because I know how it works. Maybe I didn't do it on purpose, or thought it was okay to do it because it happened to me. No. It's fucked up. It's illegal for a reason.

Since in some countries that is enough to be considered statutory rape... simply due to the fact that one person in question is under the age of 18.
3/4 years is not that much of a difference later in life, but when it comes to the legal system right around the age of 18 those years can be the difference between jail and a life of freedom.
