  • The lowest socially accepted age for the younger of two people in a romantic relationship is given by the following rule:

    [age of the older partner ÷ 2] + 7 years

    For your case:

    [ 20 ÷ 2 ] + 7 years = 17 years old

    Your good to go by this estimation.

  • Haha, not at all. As long as he's not old enough to be your father it's not a big deal, and if you two don't look like you're that far apart, it isn't a big deal. And even if you do or it is weird who cares. It's your love life. Your business.

  • 3 years is perfectly normal where I am from. For some reason the US is more uptight about it.

    Though avoid sending nudes or else the guy could get law-issues for having child-porn.

    • I'm from Canada actually.. ! :P

    • Then dunno how things are in Canada, but my points still stand. If you get physical you might also want to give him the safety of a written consent form just in case your parents might not approve of him and get mad. Where I am from 17yrs with 20 years wouldn't be considered having sex with a child, because of the low age difference, but in many places it seems to be not the case.

  • yeah ... He is,,,, But em Not...

  • On a personal level it doesn't sound all that weird to me. I've known many people with much larger age gaps. But legally if your relationship moves into a sexual encounter then yeah he's legally too old for you.

  • In the U. S., he'd go to jail for rape if you two had sex

    • Not all US states put the age of consent at 18. By far the more common age of consent is 16. As always, know the law in your area.

  • hmm i don't think it's that weird i mean it's more about maturity and how you guys connect. i thinking it's strange to some people just due to the fact that you're not 18 but a 3 year age difference is really not that bad

  • Age is just a number. What about his personality? If you like him then it shouldn't matter.
