Sup ladies. And... guys, too.
I have this friend of mine. He's about the same age as me... 19 years old - and we've known each other for a few years so I know him pretty well.
Now, he likes this girl in school that is significantly younger than him. Like... 5 years younger than him. So this girl is 14, and he's 19. They're not going out, and he thinks they probably won't. Personally I've been advising against the decision of asking him out (she has admitted she likes him). But he does really like this girl, and this girl does like him back. But he doesn't want to go out because of the crap that could result from it - even though he has said he wouldn't have sex with her for obvious reasons.
But this made me really curious. I understand that it is completely, 100% legal for them to go out if they wanted to so long as they don't have sex - which he assured he wouldn't. And he's a pretty legit person so I believe him.
I'm just curious to know everyone's opinion on here in, not on the story above - but on the subject in general. I don't want my friend to get in trouble or make a stupid decision.
What is your opinion on large age differences, in relationships? I'm talking about teens here, but it can go into adults as well (even though it doesn't matter as much).
