It depends on how each kid is. If they are both mature then yes. Because, studies show that girls are more mature then boys so they tend to date a boy 2 years older (this case you add an extra year.) Boys tend to date girls 2 years younger (another year as well.) But I do believe that the boys should be kept a close eye on because boys that age tend to have one thing on their mind.
You're 13, you're FAR too young to be dating no matter the age. It's good to date an older boy, due to the maturity gap, but right now at your age that's just wrong. Wait 'till you're (at least) 16 or 17, you don't need to rush into these things, you're still a kid.
I don't like most of the answers here so... As a fellow girl with an older man. It is okay. Age is nothing but a number. And now a days girls are dating much younger then you. So if your happy don't listen to what others have to say. Don't even ask what they think. Because there answers will always stay in the back of your mind. I'll I say is be happy but be safe.
In all honesty, girls that age actually kids in general at that age shouldn't date. Its too soon, they're not mentally mature enough to deal with a relationship and boys that age are very hormonal and just want one thing. However I'm not saying all boys that age are like that. Most are though.
Uhmmm, I was put in the same predicament a few weeks ago, I'm 17 and the girl was 15, everyone disapproved so I dropped her. I was also curious about laws on dating, most boys that age are really looking for one thing like the majority^ said, but if anything be careful. You can get him into alot of trouble, for things such as statuary rape or I forgot what its called, but the main idea is like taking advantage of the youth, somewhat like he goes for the close minded. it just depends on your state google it. But its mostly a year or two younger is okay, but never more. Good luck.
