I don't want to go into the background details, so I'll just give it to you as it is.
I'm a 15 year old male(16 in November), who is in love with a 20 year old female(21 in October).
there's is nothing you can lose. Also, 4 years isn't a big deal and the proportion in which she's older than you will diminish over time.
I had a friend (21) who dated a 32 year old chick, that one was a pretty bad idea.
the age/2 + 7 rule of thumb suggests she shouldn't date you
Depending on where you live she could be jailed and it still seems creepy (and will come off as such). It'll likely hurt her reputation if nothing else.
Understand that there will likely be a emotional maturity difference between both of you, and if you choose to pursue a close relationship it will cause problems, eventually.
That age/2+7 rule is horseshit.
Speaking as someone with actual personal experience of this sort of thing, all I can say is listen to your heart. I've known 14 year olds who are more mature than some adults. I've known adults who would make 10 year olds look mature.
that's why it's a "rule of thumb", not a law.
5 years is nothing, as long as you love each other, just keep it low profile, don't be too obvious, don't scream in the streets that you are dating etc. eventually, if the relationship continues when she is 24, and you are 19, it'll make no difference at all. the person i loved the most in my life was actually nine years older then me, and i started dating him when i was 16, we ended the relationship because we both went separate ways in our careers heh :) thats life, gotta move on all the time.
sorry, i didnt meant to sage.
At this age it feels like a big difference, but its really not.
I don't know what the laws are where you live, but for her sake I would suggest you not get physical until you're past the local age of consent.
Don't worry, we both have decided not to go 'beyond' until I'm older and we're both ready.
Anyways, we talked it over and have decided to get together officially.
Boy is you crazy fuck dat bitch.
