    Mate, im afraid to say age is just a number....Everyone matures differently tbh as long as they are on the same intellectual level there isn't a lot wrong with dating a 16 y old!

    some really stupid people posting on this thread i dont know where to begin

    firstly theres always a chance he would go for her, the person that said "i dont know a single 20 year old who would go for a 16 year old" is either lying or has no friends

    secondly 20 year old boys (on average) are far more mature than 16 year old boys, i fail to see how anyone could possibly think otherwise

    and thirdly, a LOT of girls (not just 16 year olds) want older guys - so why is everyone having a go at this one? rofl.

    And okay then, maybe he will, although I'm a bit different to stereotypical 16 year olds.

    Nothing wrong with having standards.
    So you keep saying. You ARE the stereotypical 16 year old though - fretting over a boy you met on Facebook, judging people by the way they look and speak, repeating over and over that you're not the stereotypical 16 year old.

    It's completely fine though to be a typical 16 year old - just enjoy it! Plenty of time to meet grown up men and talk about politics and dine on oysters and champagne, seriously. I wish I had more fun, teenage relationships.

    As for the guy, say whatever you want to say. A four year age gap wouldn't ordinarily matter but you're only 16. He's 20 and at uni so if he's anything like a normal 20 year old guy at uni, he'd have plenty of girls his own age to get with so just keep that in mind.

    Well I don't know many 16 year olds that would. I prefer older guys, there's nothing wrong with that. But yeah there are some nice 16 year olds, but I see them as too young...lol.
    If you would not date a 16 year old regardless of his maturity level, then you cannot claim that the reason you won't date 16 year olds is because they are immature. The real reason, I suspect, is that you simply have a taste in older guys.

    Have standards if you like, but at least make them internally consistent.

    P.S. Yes, refusing to date someone your own age for a reason that can be applied to you -- i.e. you think they're too young -- is a double standard.

    I don't normally add randomers off the old Facebook, but...

    Okay well I sort of got talking to this guy on a facebook group, and oh my God, he is rather dishy! I'm really picky about boys, but he's truly gorgeous! And we literally have a good few things in common, and he's single.

    Problem is he's 20 and at Uni, haha fml. So my question is, if a girl added you on FB, would you want her to talk to you? I haven't said anything yet, as I don't want to **** it up... Like I want to talk to him, but I'm scared I'll look like a tit...so yeah, what would you think of a girl talking to you that you only breifly know off of FB itself?

    I'm not usually nervous, I'm used to being confident so I really don't like this!

    Thanks!
    if a random girl adds me on facebook, i would investigate on who she is meaning i would talk to her

    Not really. I agree worrying over a boy I met on FB is a bit stereotypical, but apart from that, not really.

    And I'd rather not, I'd rather drink champagne and attend dinner parties at this age actually, and date older guys at this age. A lot of stuff "typical" people my age do is pathetic, immature, and boring. And won't do them well later in live.

    But yeah I get what you mean about the whole girls at uni thing.

    I wouldn't completely rule out a 16 year old, I have dated boys my own age before. I'm just saying that as a rule, they're immature. There's always the exception.

    Lmao erm thanks? And you think, everyone does it that I know, maybe we're all just a bit weird then. :p:
    Pretty sure I've personally met everyone on my Facebook friends list at least once... that also goes for most other people I know. As far as I'm concerned at least, Facebook is for keeping in touch with your friends, not making new ones online!

    Oh right. A lot of people I know add other peoples friends lol. However, I find that really annoying when people add mine so I keep mine private, but yeah random adds are really usual, or so I thought.

    You mean expand...yes I will. You quite often slate whole groups of people, then come on here whining about being judged, i.e. 'I wear Jack Wills so people think I'm a rah, boo hoo...!. It's not ok to judge you, but it's ok for you to judge others. Secondly, the whole irony of thread. You reckon you aren't the average 16 year old, yet you are on here asking for advice about talking to some random bloke off facebook you fancy. You give off the whole 'I think I'm better than everyone' vibe. Grow up. This is why your standards aren't realistic, you think you're a lot better and more important than you actually are.

    See, again, that *would* make sense, if not for this:

    But yeah there are some nice 16 year olds, but I see them as too young...lol.
    How is this not ruling out 16 year olds? Unless you're saying that some of them aren't too young, but I seriously doubt a few months makes a difference to you, in which case anyone who is not "too young" is also not a 16 year old.

    Judging someone on actions is different to juding someone on clothing.

    And yeah, I admitted that part is stereotypical, but other than that, I'm not how most people think of teenagers. And lol I don't think I'm any more important than I am, I'm just very very confident. Plus, I am important darling. And they are realistic, plenty of guys are like that, so I don't see what's unrealistic about it?

    From my experiences, the great majority are too young-minded. However, I wouldn't be opposed to a 16 year old if we clicked and had great chemistry. Just generally, I prefer older boys.
