Both are legal, so it's not wrong exactly.

But a 16 year old might not have much in common with a 20 year old.

Personally, when I was 16 I wouldn't date anyone older than 18. But its all down to personal preference, I know many people who have dated older and been very happy

My boyfriend was 20 when I was 16, some people might find it too much of an age difference but I honestly didn't notice it.

it should be fine for either... the rule is half age +7.

Any 20 year old who'd date a 16 year old must have serious issues...

There's a 10 year age gap between my boyfriend and I.
I'm 16 and he's 26.

no, no it really isn't, that's only a rule for you if you have the maturity of a 12 year old.

I'm 16 and dating a 20 year old. We're been getting on fine for quite a while now and don't really notice the age difference when we're together. The only bad this is that I can't really go out with him at night (except for gigs), but then again, this means we give each other more space and less likely to get sick of each other any time soon.

16 and/or an 18 year old dating a 20 year old is fine

I know a 21 year old who married a 30 year old. Thats a bit too much of a gap in my opinion, but if you're happy with them then age shouldn't matter

Dunno if i like the idea of a 16 and 20 year old to be honest...That's kinda someone who's still a kid and in school vs an adult. Still lives at home etc.

I'd be more keen of 18 -> 23 year old. An extra year difference but at least you can go out together anywhere, and they can do anything, don't have parents lingering as much. And both more or less adults.

a 16 year old girl should only date up to 18, 20 is too far and may change their personality for the worse or pressurize them
if a 16 year old guy is with a 20 year old girl then good for him!!!!

When it's a 16 year old dating a 20 year there's such a massive experience and maturity gap whether it be university or work.

18-20 is fine I think.

I agree with the half age plus 7 rule. Or the minus 7 and double to find max age.

I'm 16 and my boyfriend is 18 and I think it's a fine age difference
But with a 20 year old, except in really rare cases I think you'd probably have less in common with them, although it's still okay

whether you are dating an 18 year old or a 20 year old, when it comes to love, age shouldnt stand in the way! if you really are in love with him'her, or get on with him/her well, age doesnt matter. you should feel comfortable around them and just have fun with them!
