As someone who’s been interested in dating men ten years older than me, I would say it’s ok. Your feelings don’t have age limits - it’s how you feel and to be honest you guys are quite close in age. In a couple of years time no one will blink an eye.

The fact that you’re 18 and she’s 16 does mean some will probably judge you. However, this girl is 16 and has reached the age of consent, I see no reason why you guys shouldn’t be together if you truly care for one another.

It is legal and as long as you have honourable intentions (actually have feelings for her and not manipulating or using her for sex) then I see no problem with it. I think you will have to be prepared for judgement socially but love is love, what can you do?

If people understand that you’re in a healthy relationship and continue to judge you then it’s only really their issue!

It’s legal - age of consent is 16 in UK. In theory a 16 yo could date a 30 yo as long as that 30 yo isn’t in a position of authority over her (for example they cannot be your teacher from school, but could teach at another school).

If you are in the uk, it is fine to date a 16 year old- as long as the specific "Position of trust" provisions do not apply to you.
These apply to foster carers, healthcare professionals, police officers, social workers and teachers- in these situations the minimum legal age of consent is 18 instead of the usual 16.

I feel like socially it would be weird as you’re probably in yr 13 going to uni and she’s in yr 11 going to yr 12, based off the ages you gave. And then when you’re in uni at 19 she would be in year 12. There’s nothing wrong with that but that’s kind of weird to be in uni dating a sixth former. Based off the education perspective as I don’t know if you’re going to uni

legally its fine. morally it depends on how you both feel in the relationship, and same with socially it doesnt really matter unless both of you are happy in this relationship it shouldnt rlly be a problem since its legal in the uk
