# What do you think about 21 year old female with a 17 year old male?

There's this guy I've been talking with a whole lot for a while now, and we've been getting a long really well, my problem isn't the age gap, because when thinking about it, there's only 4 years between.
we've been kinda having this sexual/romantic-ish relationship with him.. i haven't slept with him yet or anything because for some reason, the thought feels wrong, or as if I'm a weirdo, because he's 17.. is it wrong to have any sexual or romantic relationship with a 17 year old? his age is holding me back to be honest, I just don't feel right whenever stuff gets heated up or there's this romantic atmosphere. what do you guys think?

• Let's use an equation to determine if he's okay to date.

21/2 = 10.5 , 10.5+7 = 17.5

So, the minimum age someone would date at your age is 17.5, or basically 18 years old. So it's not really that bad as other relationships and I can't give you crap for dating down (I dated someone who was 15 when I myself was 17, stupid decision. Maturity makes and breaks relationships.). I personally still wouldn't shoot for it, but as long as your state's age of consent laws say it's okay I don't see a problem.

Word of warning though, in less than a year after turning 18 I matured and understood so many things 3 times faster than I ever did before, and boy was it an eye opener. So just remember that he's probably very ignorant about many things.
