He's awesome...but he's three years younger than me!

Question - (30 September 2008) 3 Answers - (Newest, 10 March 2009)
A female United States age 26-29, anonymous writes:

Dear Cupid,

There's this boy in my youth group, and we've become really good friends. He's cute, he's sweet, he's funny, and we have a lot of fun together. I think I'm really starting to like him in more than a just-friends kind of way, and my cousin told me that he kind of likes me, too. There's only one problem. He's only an eighth grader (age thirteen), and I'm a junior (with a little over a month to go until I turn seventeen). In our school, the girl being that much older than the guy is absolutely unheard of. It's acceptable for the girl to be only a year older, yes, but THREE years? They would laugh us out of town. My question is, what do YOU think about age differences? I mean, do you think it would be okay if we maybe DID decide to get together? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Dear Sucky (almost) Seventeen,

all i can say is that i have a friend who dates this boy two years younger than her (11). And they are happy together and nobody cares. So why should you care about what other people think? If you do really like him then you shouldn't care what other people think about your happiness. So go for it! And I also like this boy two years younger than me and its great you guys actually have some chemestry...

You know when I was in high school, and of legal age (18) I noticed that the some of the middle school males were skinny, and kind of muscular. But I would've never went out with one. I had a younger guy as a best friend when I was younger, and I think that he might have loved me. Idk. I say go for it, but don't complain about immaturity if you run into problems, because, remember, you chose him! lol
