    So ive been talking to this girl for a little while but I get the feeling she likes me, and ive grown to like her too in she just seems nice in general, shes in one of my classes at college and I just found out she just turned 16 about 3 months ago, where as 1 month ago I turned 19.

    Ive done the whole 19/2+7 thing but Im just concerned is this ok, I feel we are both equally mature

    She's over 16, meaning she's at legal age. That means it is her choice.

    It's perfectly legal. Just make sure she's happy with it too.

    19/2+7 is a stupid rule. It's not that much of a difference and she's legal.

    I'd like to clear something up that commenters in this post haven't.
    Yes she's 16. That is the age of consent in the U.K. However, it's only legal with another person aged 16/17. There cannot be more than a 2 year age gap (It may even be 18 months)

    In the eyes of the law, your relationship, if sexual, is illegal.

    Why has everyone jumped on the sex bandwagon when it wasn't even mentioned?

    Of course, taken into consideration what has been said about legal age and so on, but if you don't plan on having sex and only dating / being with each other, I don't see a problem.

    I always thought that was only if the person was in a position of trust? E.g, teachers?

    "It is an offence for a person aged 18 or over to have any sexual activity with a person under the age of 18 if the older person holds a position of trust (for example a teacher or social worker) as such sexual activity is an abuse of the position of trust."

    The [age]/2+7 rule is none-functional. If it's legal and you're about as mature as each other, it'll be fine.

    That is only the case in positions of trust (teachers, doctors etc.). Otherwise no, over the age of consent and you can put ur penis in it. There is certain limits with a 16 year old tho, like if you take nude pictures of your 16 year old gf you've legally gone and made child porn. Even thought having sex with that "child" is totally legal. Because that's... sensible.

    She’s over 16, she’s legal and can make her own choices. I’m with my boyfriend and we have a 3 year gap between us, some people are shocked to hear it but when we’re older it wont be as bad! (34&37)

    Well, yes that's true. But being in a relationship that cannot have any kind of sexual activity because it's literally illegal is slightly worrying, is it not?

    You're asking me if it's worrying that two people may want to be in a relationship with each other but not have sex? I don't think that is worrying, no.

    If it would be illegal for them to do so, of course it is.
