I won't be doing anything stupid with her.
Women my age lack the "youthful" energy, jaded, and always want money.

We hear this all the time. "She's different" or "she's so mature" and all that. The reality is she is 16 and not anywhere near mature yet. She's in high school. Girls in college aren't even all that mature yet. The other thing is in most states she's not of age to consent and even if she is, she's still not legally an adult.
Even if no one says it outright, they know why you're with her. Her parents will especially know. You're gonna have to decide if it is worth the hassle. If the parents don't like you, they will go nuts on you if they see you with her, especially if she has a protective father.
