Anonymous said: Okay so i'm 17 years old. I met a guy at my work who is 24. We clicked from the start, and I've never got along with someone so well! I had crazy feelings for him for 2 months, then he resigned work. We got eachothers numbers and decided to meet up to keep in contact and well we admitted our feelings to eachother and kissed/cuddled. I know it may seem bad because of the age gap... But he really does respect my age and I made the first move not him. The age of consent is 16 so is this bad??!!
You are almost an adult and as long as you believe he respects you then there is no reason why that age gap should hold you back. You can’t decide when your born so you shouldn’t let it rule your life! The only thing I would suggest is that your not sneaky about the relationship in regards to your parents. Be open with them about his age and where your going with him etc. otherwise you will give them more reason to worry than is necessary.
I hope this has helped and it all goes well
