I agree with this. Age differences are fine in ADULTS, my parents have a six year age difference, and I know people who have much larger age gaps, but they are still ADULTS. THEY CAN VOTE! It is actually legal for those people to have sex, despite their age difference. However, a 13 (omg, omg, sorry, sorry, ALMOST 14) Cannot legally have sex. it is, in a word againsthefuckinglaw.beckywecky said:Well there's definitely a lot of heated discussion within this forum.
Firstly, can a 13 (wait, 'almost 14') year old be in love? No. Love is a concept that is not easily or properly comprehended, especially by someone who is only just a teenager. Her mind and her beliefs will change significantly over the next few years, then again when she gets older. How can you possibly justify being in a (sexual?) relationship with a CHILD? Younger girls are fixated with older guys, and will often just have a 'crush' on them because they ARE infact older. If you're showing her attention ofcourse she'll respond - but that's not exactly something you should be proud of...
Your relationship will end.
It will end probably with her parents trying to obtain rape charges against you.
You will confuse her, you're messing with her whilst she is at the crucial stage of developing her ideas, growing up and dealing with the child - like issues we all went through in year 8. Why on earth would you want to be with someone so young?
I am not against age differences in relationships. Hell, I am always the one to be interested in older guys. But I am 17, and for me to be with someone 21 or 22 isn't a big deal - I am 18 in a few months, and adult relationships are VERY different to child ones.
She is too young. Get over it, get on with your life, and find someone your own age... If that's possible.
Otherwise prepare for the inevitable...
It's things like this that really make me want to go for the Law degree. Sorry man, but you are running not only a severe legal risk, but the risk of damaging her emotionally and mentally for life. You are manipulating her in an impressionable stage of her life, even if you don't realise it.
Please, stop this. I beg of you.
