    how would that maths help???
    It's a formula I roll out (half age plus 7) that allegedly defines the allowed age difference in relationships, so it says that the minimum age an 18 year old can go out with is 16, and hence the formula would approve of the relationship you mentioned. There are much more important factors though, so feel free to ignore it

    it's WRONG to go out with a boy 16 when you're an 18 female, I cant explain it just is...... most girls 14 go for guys (or try to) who are 18+ I'm not joking!..... And what your trying to do.. it's like a 40 year old women with a 25 year old men... TOY BOY, avoid this it's not worth the rumors, gossip and hassle.

    xkcd FTW!!

    I also go by this equation - it never fails

    But as a general rule - if it's legal then it's okay! It's just soceity's strict views these days that people have to be around the same age... why? - because of old neaderthal instincts of choosing an apt age for reproduction... besides, 2 years apart is NO big deal at all

    Stop living your life through what people say at high school. Two years is not a big difference and so what if he's younger? Maybe your girlfriends are saying 'OMG that is like... so weird' but then again why do you have to care what they think? They're probably also the ones who can't think for themselves and feel the need to adhere to certain unwritten conventions. It's how you feel and that's all that matters.

    its been tearing me up thinkin about it
    he dont act 16 he dont look 16
    its just an age my mate said and to go for it
    plus if anyone has anything bad to say ill just ask them why did they accept my exs brother going out with someone who was 19 when he was 16
    so im not entirely alone to be honest

    You clearly do care, for 3 reasons:

    - You wouldn't have posted on her in the first place
    - The second bolded statement: retaliating to people's criticism
    - Third bolded statement: the fact you take comfort from external sources


    Just ask him out, age does NOT matter as long as there is consent, legality, and maturity enough to go with it (and the obvious other matching factors in a relationship)
