Should I give her a second chance in a relationship?

Anonymous

I (M25) met this girl (F19) back in June in one of my uni classes. I was immediately attracted to her and she later let me know that she felt the same. Flash forward, we go out for the first time and while we’re getting to know each other, she tells me that she is 21 years old, which based on my opening wasn’t true. I proceeded to date this girl for a month (asked her to be my girlfriend) because we got along super well, we have similar personalities, senses of humor, and interests. Overall, I really enjoyed being with her. However, as you could guess, I eventually found out her real age, and when I confronted her about it, she still tried to lie until i asked to see her ID. I later made the decision to stop dating her which then led to her apology. She was mature about it, called me, and owned up to her actions. She said the reason she lied was bc she was insecure. She was worried that I’d treat her differently (exs of hers have apparently) and said that overall, she lied because she didn’t think I’d be interested in her. Flash forward again, me and her have been in friends with benefits situation for about 2 months now. We don’t text anymore, don’t go on dates, however, when I’m with her it feels like nothing changed. We act the same way we did when dating, our chemistry is still 100% intact, and we end up spending hours together. Anyway, she just confessed tonight that she wants to date me again, to start over. She said she wants to commit to me and is willing to do all she can to make it work. She also said that she learned from her mistake of lying and that while it was an extremely horrible way to start a relationship, she’d never do it again, especially since she wants to be with me so badly. She’s asking for a second chance and I’m not quite sure what to do. I’d say the age is an issue, but it honestly doesn’t seem to be a problem between us. We both rent apartments, have jobs, go to school, pay bills.
