    Just because its legal deosnt make it right. This reminds me of this fat girl on tsr who got all pissed off because i said size 14 is fat, she had to remind me that the UK average size is 16 therefore she isnt :rofl:.
    How is it not right though? Explain what is wrong with two consenting people having a sexual and an emotional relationship?

    Anyway its shameful because if you are 20+ you should be going forward in life not backwards, chasing after 16 year olds.
    It's not going backwards, age doesn't matter at all. You might have lots in common and get on great. It's like those people who say "oh I'd never date a smoker", it's just shallow and pathetic.

    As for you calling me immature, trust me girls like you are extremely stupid thinking you are mature enough to go for an older guy, ive known my fair share of girls who like you thought the same, sadly the older guys merely took advantage of this
    You don't know me personally, so it's rather unfair to say that. You're simply judging me on my age and that I like older guys. As I said, most guys think I'm older myself initially, so it's not as if they plan "Oh-ho she's younger than me, let's act like we love her and use her for sex!" People can just have a genuine relationship that both parties enjoy.

    Why is it shameful? There is nothing wrong with two people of the legal age strinking up a relationship if they wish to.
    Actually i have to agree that a person over the age of 20 getting with a 16 year old is wierd. Granted there are exceptions but mainly its wierd. And im 29. 18+ not a problem but 16 no.

    Your sixteen, your barely out of being a child and the chances are you are no where near as mature as you think. Its not true in a very few number of cases but for the most part those who call themselves mature usually are not even when they think they are.

    They do this out of the assumption that the older you are the more mature you get. Which is not always true

    True dat.

    I ripped my mate hard for going out with a 16 year old when he was 21. I mean, you can't even go to the pub. He picked her up from school, wearing a uniform(her, not him, that would be weird). I mean, c'mon man. :lolwut: I'd feel like a right paedo.
    lol that made me remember I need to watch the rest of Scott Pilgrim vs the world

    At least you acknowledge the exceptions, but I really don't understand the weirdness? The girl isn't underdeveloped and prepubescent, so I don't see an issue at all.

    Your sixteen, your barely out of being a child and the chances are you are no where near as mature as you think. Its not true in a very few number of cases but for the most part those who call themselves mature usually are not even when they think they are.
    Again, I don't understand the child argument. For me personally, I've had to deal with a lot more in my life than most adults have (nobody's fauly, stuff happens) which has made me a lot stronger and a lot less naive than others. I've been brought up around adults all my life, I can converse and socialise with them better than I can with people my own age because I simply don't have much in common with them. There are a few who I do, but not many. Lastly, at 16, no one has the body of a child. Therefore I don't view myself as a child, neither do my parents. Obviously there will be very immature 16 year olds (a lot are tbh) but not all.

    Some people bs and say age is just a number, but lets be real it isnt. Also just because something is legal doesnt make it right. I live my life on principles and there are certain things i just cannot do. I can tell you that the majority of self respectful guys aged 20+ who get attention from the opposite sex within their age group, wouldnt even think of going with a 16 year old.

    Its usually the low lifes, from what ive seen so far that go for 16 year olds. :yes:

    Tell me how it is wrong? What is wrong with a consentual relationship?

    Not really, I'd never touch someone who wasn't ambitious and was a lowlife. The only annoying people I've met are the ones who want trophy girlfriends. But they usually end up with golddiggers, so alls well that ends well I guess.

    You asking whats wrong with a consentual relationship?. A couple of days ago there was this thread on tsr about two 12 year old rapped by 6 footballers. It was consentual, but it was still wrong. Obviously in that case it was illegal as they were underage but there you go. Just because consent has been given doesnt make it right.

    Anyway do your thing, its your life i guess.

    How on Earth is it rape if they consented? Statutory rape maybe, but it's not the same as pinning a woman down and forcing her, not even close. 12 is a bit young because they won't be developed, but in most circumstances, especially when someone's over 16, there's no issue with it at all. I guess it comes down to what you define as a child, but to me, 14 is really the latest someone can be called a child.

    This might turn into a law lesson and i cant be asked to get into it. Im already depressed enough with my ankle injury. Gotta stay indoors whilst amateurs balling like they good.

    As i said do your thing, btw right now you are showing your immaturity by saying "How on earth is it rape if they consented"

    Are you telling me if you were 26 and some hot 16 year old girl asked you out, you would say no?
    Almost certainly... If I were 26 (which I'm not, I'm 18) I imagine I'd be after people my own age. At least I ****ing hope so.

    Not really, as everyone is different and every relationship is different. They could have loads in common and get on fine. Obviously there would be cases where it wouldn't work, but there are also cases where it does. Age really doesn't matter in relationships.
    You mean like most cases wouldn't work. And if there are 23 year olds out there who has loads in common with a 16 year old girl, well... that's slightly odd.
    I think age is very important in relationships. A 16 year old sees the world very differently to a 23 year old. I don't care who they are, that's just how it is.

    And what is also annoying, is that when us men are 28 and its our turn to start going out with 18 year olds, all the 28 year old women will think we are creepy pervs.
    :facepalm:
    You care about what probably past their prime already bitter women think about you? Even if you were not going out with 18 yr olds they would still see you as a walking wallet and sperm donor.

    But it does grate on me a bit as all through school and now uni the best looking girls date guys older than them who have a lot more money to throw about.These guys are often late twenties early thirties . And the other girls want to date guys like that but are not hot enough.

    That is why feminism is a big fat joke, you have girls at university prepared to be some older guys sperm despository and trophy.As long as he is rich, girls will say 'financially secure' and' emotionally mature' than younger guys.Load of rubbish. I know guys late teens early twenties who act like they are 40.so there is your emotionaly maturity. Just what is the degree for,for these girls?

    Still I guarantee all those guys who are like me and a bit jealous, when we reach this age we will or want to do the same.And also if more older women wanted 16yr-21 old lads rather than just teachers we would all be more than happy to be pampered.

    Guys theres no use she'll look back years later and see how naive shes been but at the time theres nothing you can say to convince them.

    It's like telling a kid who smokes not to, its just gonna make them want to even more.

    But all girls like to think they're mature, and all girls get smitten with older guys and have teenage crushes because "Omg hes so cute and mature unlike the guys in my year and omg he has a car".

    It's just because they've never seen a guy who doesn't use a skateboard and they all like to think they're special and more mature than others and when an older guy comes along this appeals to them.

    There are some insecure *******s on this thread lol

    Age is nothing. As long as it's two adults, who honestly cares. Maybe she's a gold digger, maybe she looks for a dad figure, who cares she isn't bothering you and it's legal.

    I will just add that in my opinion women around 30-34 are at their peak in beauty. Younger women, as attractive as they can be, lack something, which grows as they hit their 30s. Sadly for women their physical appearance fades fast after their late 30s. Men do age a lot better so cheer up guys :-)
    Often never is bro, or is 1 adult with an insecure, immature child that thinks they're all grown up hence wants to date someone so older

    Ahh you're so 16. :rolleyes: your 'passion' and enthusiasm about what you believe is nice and everything but you sound pretty naive imo, don't go around with the potentially bothersome attitude of 'age not mattering'... that's weird. I can imagine you at 18 dating someone over 10 years older than you

    Not to say you're immature, haven't experienced anything, I wouldn't know that cos I don't know you personally but you're coming across in that way, to be fair a lot of girls your age do tend to be into older girls but yeah, looking at it from an older guys' point of view, if you're like 23/24 and actively looking for teenage girls I just think it's a bit weird - just sayin

    I chuckle inside when people under say 21 say they are 'mature' for their age. That's a bit like every mum and dad saying their toddler "is so clever for his/her age". Every parent does it lol

    If you think you're mature, imagine yourself in 2-3 years time. Even better, remember how you were two years ago and how much you've changed. I bet you thought you were mature and wise back then too. The same thing is gonna happen again as teenagers change fast. They are called your formative years for a reason!
