    thanks, but can i just ask why?

    you would date a guy that's older than you by like 5 years, but not somebody only ONE year younger than you?

    Ummm no reason I guess actaully I forgot, i did date a guy a year below me once but he wasnt from around my area i dunno why but i would have been embarassed if people actually knew but when we went out it was okay cause he looked much older for his age and usually younger guys are immature, and cant think of any reasons actually but yeah and i wouldnt check a guy 5 years older than me! maybe when im past my 20s or 30s but i think they biggest age gap i would keep is 3 to 4 years

    I think going as far as saying you'd being embarrased about going out with a someone in the year below is a bit pathetic...as if people will give a crap at this age!
    Boys do tend to generally be more immature though, that's probably most girls' reasons for wanting an older boyfriend.

    im not talking about dating a random guy who is younger than you. i mean somebody who you would date if he was you're age (i.e. "mature"), but the only difference is that he is a year younger and in first year of college whilst you're in second year.

    Yep, no issue there

    At the end of the day if you stay together for a while, age will become irrelevent as you have that bond

    It's a bit shallow to reject someone based on their age.

    Loads of people in my 6th form do it. Girls from year 13 going out with boys in year 12. And I also know a girl in year 12 whos boyfriend is in year 11..lol. Dont see anything wrong with it myself because I've done it. But I was really scared of what people would think.

    Yeah I would. At this age I don't think being one year younger makes much difference.

    I have done but don't think I would again. It just felt a bit weird, plus it didn't help that he was a good 3 inches shorter than me...

    It would depend entirely on their personality and attitude, I guess. I'm definitely more attracted to the kinda "manly" man though, so I tend to find guys who are older than me by 3/4 years more attractive anyway.

    I wouldn't mind as long as I liked them enough. I tend to date older though.

    If I like someone enough, I don't care what age they are . . . as long as they are legal, obviously.

    Then again, if their age meant they were immature, likely to be given a super tight curfew or generally not compatible with me, I probably wouldn't like them all that much

    You are incredibly shallow. Nothing personal, just a mere observation.

    Yeah, of course, it's only one year, hardly makes much difference now at this stage of life. Anyway, there are more important things to worry about than a tiny age difference like that.
