So I'm a junior, and this freshman really likes me. We made out, and I really don't want to hurt him, but I think it might be weird to go out with a freshman. What should I do?

Do you say no to someone ONLY because he's younger than you?

No,I won't.

At least Dorathy, one of my best friends' sister will answer you in this way. She's now leading a happy life with her husband,who was 5 years younger than her the first night he dated her,and still is now.

My friend dated someone two years younger then her last year. We were in our Senior Highschool year and he was a sophomore (2nd year). It waasn't strange, in fact they're still together. We all thought it was kind of sweet.

They didn't have any real problems, I mean come on it's only two yearss, except that he didn't come to Prom, she went with a friend. As long as you feel that the person is emotionally as old as you then it's all fine.

Enjoy your new feeling and don't worry about the age.

I have gone out with someone 2 years younger than me and I loved him. We went out for 6 months, we broke up cause we were headed in totally opposite directions. But if you want to go out with him and vise versa then go for it and I hope you two (if you go out) are very happy together

My last boyfriend was 2 years younger than me. We went out for 5 months... it wasn't a relationship that was going to last forever, but we loved each other, and it was good. So, why not?

age differences aren't for everyone. personally, i will automatically reject a guy if he is younger than me by so much as a day. that is a personal preferance. maybe i've missed out on a few great guys that way, but i cannot deal with my own nagging discomfort knowing that i'm older.

but ignore me and think whether you like this guy. do you like him? really like him? then age should not matter. but if for some reason the age difference *really* bothers you that much, then it's going to be a difficult thing to overlook in a relationship. it's a big thing for me.

fortunately, you are in high school, and from here, age gaps start to narrow a bit. frosh and junior aren't too far off. many of my friends dated, or are still dating, younger guys.

okay, in all, judge how much the age difference bothers you. if it's not much or not at all, go for it.

if you get the molasses, i'll set up the trampoline.

Hey... I think it is perfectly normal. My boyfriend was a junior last year and I was a freshman and now he's a senior and I am a sophomore. Nothing is wrong with it. If you really like a person, age should not stop you and what people think shouldn't either. I hope everything works out for the best.

Hey! Back when I was in highschool, it was looked down upon if a chick dated a YOUNGER guy. On the other hand, if you were a girl dating an OLDER guy, you were soo cool!

Looking back, everything looks so dumb! I missed out on a relationship with a guy I really liked just because he was younger AND because I cared more about what everybody thought!

If you like him, go for it.

Its ALL good :)
