Can I Date A Guy 4 Years Younger Than Me?

Report as

It seems kind of gross. What are your reasons for wanting to date a child, when you are almost an adult?

probably not a good idea there's a big difference between a 13 year old and a 17 year old

As long as you keep it on a "friendly "basis, no hanky panky, if you know what I mean. ;)

yes but not at your age. If you was 21 you could date anyone but since your young it would be an issue.

Why would you want to do that? He's probably immature, & you're probably beautiful. Aim higher.

I agree with NinjaJackie and it is illegal.

No, because both of you are in two very different parts of your lives, one is an adult other is still a new teenager.
If both were 18+ then id say 4 year difference is nothing, and that the relationship can work.

13? That's a child! Don't misunderstand me. I'm 4 years older then my husband (been married for 22 years, plus). Thing us we net, and then natured in our 30s.

You're almost an adult, don't date a little kid. A 13 year old isn't going to be mature enough to satisfy your intellectual and emotional needs in a relationship.

Don't cheat yourself. A 13 year old knows too little to be useful as a date.

I'm pretty sure you can "date" him - but you both can't legally get physical, if you know what I mean, (like that is going to stop any teens). As far as the age difference - you are on a whole new plane of thinking - you're going to be looking at guys that can connect with you - in my opinion - he's just not ready for you yet - and he'll soon bore you to tears - after you turn 18 - you're going to be looking in the other direction - older guys - since girls develop much sooner than boys - and soon you will be looking for guys that have something going on in their lives - besides good looks. I'd back off on this one if I were you.

That's not a relationship; that's babysitting.
