    I mean it's good that he wants to wait till he's eighteen as otherwise anything you did would be incredibly illegal. personally I don't understand it, there's such a big gap between 17 and 26, not just in physical age but in mental maturity and experience, I don't see why you would want to date them but of course my understanding is not important in the slightest.
    so long as you don't do anything until he is 18 then it's not Wrong as in it's not illegal, but you will definitely be judged by people, if you were both older the age gap between you wouldn't be bad but right now 9 years is half his whole life

    I don't think so.Only thing I would worry about is if both of you are mature enough.

    Nope. You are both old enough to know what you want and give consent. I think it is a good thing that you wait until he is 18 though

    It’s not illegal at 17. The age of consent is 16

    I mean you'll be judged but hey as long as you haven't done anything illegal (like you say) you're not in trouble in the eyes of the law. However please be aware that he's barely going to be an adult and you're closer to your 30s than to your 20s.

    age of consent is 16 yes but if one of you is over 18 then it still counts as sex with a minor

    No if they're over 16 then it is perfectly legal. The exception is if you're in a position of trust (e.g. teacher).
