19 year old guy going out with 17 year old girl? Watch

    I am a 19 year old guy and I've recently got to know a 17 year old girl really well and I get the impression that she really likes me.

    However, would it be considered weird if we went out due to the age gap?

    By the way, we're both staunch Christians and I don't believe in pre-marital sex.

    I know a 19 year old guy who goes out with a 17 year old girl, and they seem to be doing fine.

    Of course, you'll probably have to put up with the obvious 'paedophile' jokes from some people, but if you can cope with that, then go ahead!

    No theres nothing weird about that at all.
    Both over the age of consent (even though you don't believe in pre-marital sex) so there's no problem.
    It's only two years, my aunt and uncle have a 16 year age gap!

    It's only two years which is normally not a gap at all. Even in late teens it isn't exactly a big gap.

    I don't think it's weird at all! It's only a 2 year difference, no one thinks that a 21 year old and 23 year old going out is weird, so 17 and 19 should be no different

    \frac{Your \ age}{2} + 7 = Minimum \ age \ you \ can \ date \\ \frac{19}{2} + 7 = 16.5

    Fine.
    All that needs to be said, really. I'm always a little surprised people still ask these questions.

    When I was 16 my boyfriend was 20, no big deal, never really noticed the difference to be honest.

    I was 17 when me and my then girlfriend now fiancee got together when she was 19. Nothing odd about it whatsoever.

    That was my age gap last year...so I think it's perfectly reasonable (Now 18 and 20 :P )

    My parents have ten years between them and my grandparents have roughly 16!

    Only problem is you might not be able to go out to bars or clubs together but that is literally it. Not weird at all
