Age Is An Important Number.. Right?

Like especially if it’s a difference between less than 18, and 18 and up?

Yeah, I’m pretty sure the phrase, “Age is but a number” hasn’t been used since the times of Romeo and Juliet. And even that was pretty insane.

So there’s a guy. Of course there’s a guy. And he’s older. Which is why I’m talking about age.

Keep in mind, I’m only 16. And he’s.. 19. Wasn’t there a rule somewhere that a 3 year age difference isn’t that bad?

I don’t know, but either way I’m like 99.9% sure that getting involved with this guy is definitely not a good idea.

Not that anything will happen. Or is even about to happen. I don’t even like him like that. I don’t think so. He’s just fun to talk and he’s a cool guy and all. But he’s like lingering around me. I don’t know what that’s all about.

Sometimes thing’s get a tad bit flirty. I usually don’t mind. It’s fun actually.

But yeah, even if I were to catch feelings for him, I would steer clear.

!6, 19, probably not a good match.

But anyways, what do you guy’s think about relationships with older guys? I know some people say that if he’s a certain number of years older than you, he might as well be your babysitter not your boyfriend.

But what’s your opinion?

I doubt anything is going to happen between me and 19 year old but the topic of age is interesting.

Comment below, I’d love to hear your thoughts!

    The thing is… Your situation is not well described (like how well you know him). If you feel you are as mature as he his, then it should be fine. Just check the law and all that crap before he and you get serious and whatnot. I personally find it really awkward If I (being a guy) go out with a 19 year old girl. That’s weird for dudes. But for girls. I’m sure it’s fine. ‘Age is just a number’ is a complete lie. It’s a sign of maturity. If you two are over that, then I think you’re fine.

    Thanks! And yeah, I doubt things will get serious and to be honest he acts just about the same age as me, haha. But anyways, I just found the concept interesting, like what if things were to eventually escalate.. you know? And yeah, typically I guess it makes sense for the guy to be older than the girl.. or that’s the tradition anyways.

  3. I would say that there is a huge difference between those who are in high school an those who aren’t. You wise up a lot after high school. It’s a really weird, dramatic change. That being said, I personally feel that there’s a pretty big difference in emotional and mental maturity between those who are under eighteen and those who are over it most times. I was always the weird mature one in high school, and I have grown so much as a person since I graduated that it’s insane. My boyfriend is 26 and I just turned 22. I think we suit each other very well, but I also think that a major part is that we’re both adults (mind you, I just watched Frozen for the fourth time). I would say that a boy who is out of high school and still interested in high school girls has some sort of problem, and is trying to prey on some sort of assumed naive nature in those girls. I would say ditch him. See if he’s still interested in being your friend or whatever after you graduate. In conclusion, graduated people who party with high school students… No. Just no. Lame to the Nth degree.

    Haha, so true! Once I graduate high school I wouldn’t want to be hanging around high school people! And good call on the maturity after high school thing, now that I work with college students, I do see a difference between high school students and college students.

    I might just turn him into a buddy type- you know, good friend, like a “bro”. I like him as a person so I’ll just keep my distance and stop things from escalating if they are. Thanks!
