    Hey.

    I'm dating someone who is 19 and a fresher at uni.

    I'm 17 and in my first year of sixth form.

    His friends think I am too young.
    A few of mine have made comments. But on the whole think it's okay.

    But they way I think of it, most peoples parents have a few years between them.

    What do you think?

    2 years? / 2 + 7 rule, 19 / 2 (9.5) + 7 = 16.5 is ok for 19 but due to legal we'd say 16 is fine.

    I'm in year 12 and my boyfriend has left college and is doing an apprenticeship, and tbh I barely even notice the age difference. So long as you both have similar levels of maturity, it shouldn't be a problem.

    It's fine. No one will say anything once you turn 18.

    It's nothing. Might be a problem because you're at different stages in life though.

    That funky maths rule people use says it's okay, plus you're over 16 so legally it's ok... overall, pretty okay.

    Him being at uni while you're at sixth form is gonna be the thing that might give you trouble, not the gap in itself. The gap is completely negligible.

    2 years is acceptable however i think its cause you are 17 in sixth form and he is at uni they might say you are young. If you were 20 and he was 22 totally fine.

    Didn't read the comments when i posted but totally agree its more to do with one being at school the other at uni.
