I've always thought I couldn't get better. My past relationships have either been purely physical or not all that good, and I've cut them off after about a month. I met him at a bookstore. We were both looking at Palahniuk and he started a conversation over the book I was holding. It was a collection of short stories, I believe, but I can't quite remember. We both had some time on our hands, and he ended up asking if I wanted to get some coffee to continue our conversation.
For your state the age of consent for sexual acts is Teems generally need to be over 18 before they can legally engage in sexual conduct. In other words, a person must be at least 16 years old to be able to legally agree to A 16 or 17 year old cannot consent to sexual activity if. I know with law stuff thats its illegal for 23 year olds to date 17 year olds. I'm just asking would I be able to date my boyfriend once I become 18 years old? So, for example, it does say someone needs to be 16 before they can.
This continued for about a week before he ended up asking about my age. He was kind of shocked when I first told him I was 16, and told me that he was He asked if that made me uncomfortable and I told him it didn't.
We've now been seeing each other for about five months.
Should a year-old girl date a year-old man? Dating is not wrong, but in some states or nations if she (23 yrs old) has sexual . I'm a woman and I condemn every adult woman who dates underage guys just as hard as. I'm going to apply for university, which is a HUGE step for me, and he's going to help me with When I was 15/16 I was dating a 23 year old. If you are aged years old, you can legally have sex with sports coach cannot have sex with a person aged years old under their.
Everything about our relationship is exactly what I needed. He speaks with me about things that nobody else is interested in. We play the same video games. The sex is great 16 is legal where I come from, don't worry and inclusive of the fetishes I didn't think anyone would share with me.
I actually feel myself getting a little bit happier. Tonight we're going to watch the new Sherlock at his apartment and binge-watch some Game of Thrones. I'm going to apply for university, which is a HUGE step for me, and he's going to help me with the application. Things are pretty fucking great, Reddit. Pretty fucking great. Just wanted to share, seeing as I can't really share this with anyone else in all its detail.
That's about the same age difference as my wife and I. She was 17 when we met. Some people are just too uptight and can't understand anyone else's world view. Enjoy your happiness. Not to say that you shouldn't date.
I'm 23, dating an 18 year old - thoughts?
But I will say, the person I was at 16, and the person I am at 25, are two pretty different people. Don't be sad if your romance wears off eventually. We all change and grow, all through our lives. It's just that those early years are pretty full of change. Oh, I'm well aware of that. I'm not an idealist about our relationship. All I know is that right here, right now, he's improving my life, and I think I'm improving his.
I am 26, and have been with the same person since I was 16, he was 20 at the time. We have grown together. Our relationship is better than ever.
It is possible to grow and change with people and still love each other. I just wanted to give you some insight from the positive side.
I want to piggyback on your comment for a sec. I was 17 when I got with my then 21 year old boyfriend.
Do You Date Age-Appropriately?
We have been married for 20 years now. We have 2 kids and a couple cats.
I'm 23, and the prospect of dating any girl not at least 20 makes me feel like a creeper. Most 16 year old boys I know are incredibly immature. Since you are 18 years old, you are allowed to date a woman half your age plus seven. And that means I can date a woman who is " What about if your 10 -year-old looks at you and says, "I'm ready to date, Dad"?. If you're happy, go for it. Don't let people tell you what to do - they don't know you and they don't know whoever it is you're with (I'm assuming.
I just wanted to say sometimes love works out. I know we live in a very negative time for love, regarding people thoughts on love.I'm 16 AND I DATE A 23 YEAR OLD??
When I was 23 I met a woman 9 years older than me, and she was wonderful. Honestly though, I didn't think it could possibly last. I assumed that because I was so much younger than her, that eventually the age difference would become insurmountable and there wouldn't be enough to keep her around.
Now, here I am, 6 years later, and we just got married in December. She has helped me immensely with a lot of the things that held me back. I have some really bad memory issues, and yesterday remembered something small that I thought of for just a moment 12 hours later.
A monumental deal for me. I had severe depression, and I couldn't figure out what I wanted to do with my life. She gave me support, and direction. More important than all that she actively did was what she did by just being. She had lived life long before I got there. She had a son, that a year before we met, had passed away at She needed a strong presence in her life, she needed a rock, and I learned not just how to do that, but also that I was good at it.
I could go on, and on about her. She's my world after all, but it would be off message, which is this: Sometimes, what you need in life is not someone in the same place in life as you, as western culture seems to feel is the standard. Sometimes, what you need is someone in a different place.
Whether it's inches, or it's miles. Don't ever let anyone tell you that whoever makes you happy is not right for you. No one but you can ever know that. Celebrate right in their faces. Such a beautiful comment. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. My favorite subject, feeling, action is love. So I enjoyed reading about your love. You are allowed to be happy. Don't let any of those fuckers here or elsewhere tell you otherwise.
I've gotten quite a bit of disapproval for my decision, accompanied by cries that I'm being taken advantage of. I've known what I want, like and am comfortable with sexually and personally for a very long time, so being told that my decisions must be because of some sort of manipulation on his part really frustrates me.
Damn, I don't know you, but I can guess a bit where some of your anxiety and depression are coming from if you have to associate with people like that. Ignore the haters. The only people who should give a shit about you two being together are you two.
As long as you both are happy live life like you want to. I imagine that her parents are allowed to give a shit about who she is with. Maybe I'm just old fashioned though.
Somehow I doubt her dead dad or her mother who isn't around anymore give a shit who she dates. I didn't catch the father dying part. We don't really know the other side of the situation in regard to the situation. Honestly, reddit is full of young people who vilify their parents and dramatize situations. I doubt she was living alone and supporting herself before she met her boyfriend, it's safe to assume that someone cares about her.
She's sixteen. I'd reckon she is old enough to start making her own decisions in some areas. You were originally stating that nobody should care if they were together, it wasn't related to her making decisions. So my comment was about your original point. The decision to be with him is her own though, and no one should give a shit about what she decides.
I guess we will just disagree then. Her parents have a right practically an obligation to care about her decisions. In fact, I believe that if you care about someone at all then you should always care about their decisions.
Im 23 and dating a 16 year old
How is that related to what I said? I don't know how people are continuously misinterpreting me and talking about unrelated things. OP said nobody should care who she is with. I said people should care if they care about her. Caring doesn't necessarily mean disagreeing with her decision at all. Caring might mean being supportive of it, or it might mean being concerned, ETC. I didn't read through your other comments and very tired so I apologize for not looking further into it.
Still be careful but I'm hoping for the best. Oh, no problem. Didn't mean to come off as aggressive; reading my previous comment makes me realize that I kind of did. My bad! What's your favourite of his stuff? I'm currently re-reading Choke and thoroughly enjoying it. Survivor and fight club are also good ones. Did you watch the Choke movie? You don't have down votes now, but they could have come from the fact that you said if she was 16 things would be ruined by her immaturity and carelessness Date Posted: Feb 24, 1.

Date Posted: Feb 24, Good luck with that, I know I wouldn't be able to deal with an 18 year old for an extended period of time. The mindset is just completely different. We actually went on a few dates before I ever asked her how old she was, haha. Everything's legal. You're both happy.
