I'm 17, he's 19. Is this age gap too much? Watch

    (We are both guys, not that it makes a difference)

    I've just turned 17, and he turned 19 a bit before me. I'm mature for 17 if I may say so myself.
    He's in first year of uni, in a city about 35mins train journey away and I'm in sixth form.

    We were texting for over a week, and he came to my city to meet me. We went on a date and it went really well. He gave me butterflies and stuff, and he told me I gave him them too.
    As he left to go home, he asked for another date and gave me a hug which gave me super butterflies and it felt like I was walking on air.

    I can'f get him off my mind. I even get excited if I see he's messaged haha.

    I'm planning on going to his city in a week or so to see him.

    Are all these feelings normal?
    Any advice?

    Those feelings are normal, and 17-19 is nothing really! My friends dad is 63 and his mum is 43 and they're happily married lmao

    Standard Creepiness Rule: Don't date under ("your age" ÷ 2) + 7

    So for a 19 year old the minimum is 16.5 years. You're good.

    It's not a scale it's a hard line.

    The age gap is fine, the potential problem will be the maturity and life experience gap which can become a lot bigger around that age range due to uni and starting work.

    Oryt m8 I think its all cute but you need to chill and maybe take it slow, you're only 17, still a little kiddo in my eyes tbh. Make sure to focus on sixthform too and I think you should build a really good friendship first and then move onto a relationship. Stay safe

    It's not the age difference that may present a problem, it's the stage in life you are both at. You may not think much of it now but one of you still being in college and the other at uni can become a strain on a relationship.
