Dating someone younger...is it acceptable?

Just turned 19 and I have met a very lovely lady who I get on with and we're going on our first serious date next monday

The nagging problem at the back of my mind is, the fact that she's just left school and is just going into 6th form (She's 16)

I would love to see something happening in the future for us, but I'm not really sure what to expect or if it did progress into a relationship, would it be acceptable?

I know a 30 year old seeing a 33 year old is no big deal, but the gap between a 16 year old and a 19 year old seems a bit steeper for some reason.

Thougts?

    i don't care what anyone says, 16 year old girls are immature.

    whether girls mature faster than boys or not, a 16 year old girl is still a child.

    she won't even be able to get into your local pub.

    That's what I was thinking mate...she's attractive and does look older than she is, and she also does seem more mature than alot of the 'girls' I knew at that age, but I can't help but think problems will arise eventually

    without being crude the legal age for starting to have sex is 16 and is there for a reason

    when i was 21 i dated a 17 year old and it werent that much of a big deal mate

    as aaliyah said after she dated r kelly at the age of 14 "age aint nothin but a number"

    Age shouldn't be a factor in a relationship. In my life, I've dated somebody older than me (4 yrs older) and someone younger than me (5 yrs) and neither bothered me age wise. Adam's right tho about 16 yr old girls being immature... but as your'e quite young yourself, give it a go, see what happens.

    I'm definately not up for a sexual relationship with her, even if she was older than myself I wouldn't be up for it any time soon

    Just looking for good companionship more than anything at the moment...it'll be nice to spend time with a girl who I can have a laugh with

    I'm also flattered that she's interested in me in my detrained state, rather than my physique which seemed to be the only thing that attracted girls to me before I was injured

    The main problem where companionship is concerned is that you'll wanna be talking about a whole host of stuff adults talk about - sport/news/music etc. where as she'll just be interested in what the latest Barbie is.

    LMAO Your not up for a sexual relationship! Then what kind of relationship you after, Aww you just gonna be good freinds, Its soo sweat LOL. If theres know sexual interest then your not really in a relationship at all. so i see no harm in being friends with this young girl. And thats all you will be once she finds out you aint gonna bang her she will probably loose interest pritty fast anyway mate.

    assuming its legal and you have common interests and of course its consentual i dont see an issue

    common interests are not always shared by those of the same age group, if you find it elsewhere then go for it IMO

    No mate I'm sorry but if your partner wasn't born on the same day or earlier then it just won' t do.

    knighty i think thats acceptable, if you was any older/she was any younger i think that would be a bit weird tho

    for example my girlfreidns sister (16) has just started seeing a 23yr old, wtf!?

    oh and you are only just 19 correct so its only a couple of years

    Go for it, whats the harm? You make a new friend / lover or you dont. I say always take the chance. Better to live life giving everything a try.
