Dating a 16 year old girl
Anyway, as you said she's mature, just like I was, so really it's up 2 both of you, plus she's over 16 so you wouldn't be in trouble or anything. If you don't go for it, you could be throwing away something pretty amazing. If it helps there's a 13 year age gap between my best friend's mum and her dad. ) in her late 30s when her dad was in his early 50s It shouldn't make any difference at all.
I'm in an 10 year age gap relationship and have been for 7 years now.
My past relationships have either been purely physical or not all that good, and I've cut them off after about a month. It was a collection of short stories, I believe, but I can't quite remember.
It has, honestly, been the best thing to happen in my life. But, I've found it's mostly not malicious (friends usually tease about their friends' choice of partners-- heck I teased a mate for seeing a guy called Randalf.). You are both adults and can do whatever and whomever you like.
It has never been an issue, and in fact, for me was an advantage in a lot of ways. I was born in December 1983 my husband was born in November 1976 we've been together since July 2001 got married April 2005 we're still together, and pretty happy right at the moment. Typically the reason older men don't date teenage women is because they don't relate to them as well as older women, not because there's anything wrong with finding a young woman attractive.
He was kind of shocked when I first told him I was 16, and told me that he was 22.
He asked if that made me uncomfortable and I told him it didn't.
