I'm 18 and at uni, and I'm in an open (I'm not here for a lecture on that), relationship with a 16 year old in year 12. Is 2 years a big difference? Thanks

I'd say it's fine. Tbh, I don't really know how anyone could say it's wrong.

Legally, it's fine; 16 is the age of consent. I also don't see anything wrong with it, socially speaking. It even follows the half your age plus seven rule which, although I'm not an advocate of it, is a decent guideline at the very least

I think it's fine. I knew a lot of 1st year university students with girlfriends in college.

It's fine I think.
depends more on how mature you both are for each other.

I think you can do what you like.

That being said If she/he was in year 11 and you were at uni I would think that was different because school children being in a relationship with adults makes me wonder about the balance of power in the relationship. That being said that often occurs in relations where both parties are adults etc.

Anyway, its you guys life.

When I was 16 I was in a relationship with a 20 year old. It's fine, it's normal.
