Ahh I have feelings for a boy who is three years younger than me. Next year, I will be a HS Senior and he will be a Freshman. I know this isn't socially "acceptable", but should I really care, if we were thinking about dating? He really likes me and I'm thinking it's mutual ... He is surprisingly mature for his age, in multiple respects. It should be fine just as long as we feel comfortable with one another, right?
Society seems to think that it's fine and well for girls to date guys who are considerably older than them, but it is rare to see the opposite because it has somehow been deemed "not okay"-- at least it has been this way in my experience. Not sure if I should pay any heed to this, because these are my feelings, and I'm secure with them, so it shouldn't be anyone else's concern, right? Lol

It's perfectly fine to date someone younger than you. My sister is dating someone two years younger than her and their relationship is fine. You shouldn't care what other people think about this. It's your relationship and your decision.

Good Luck

Absolutely go for it! I'm dating a younger guy. I am a little bit more mature than him. But I can also be as immature as he is. And by immature I don't mean, playing silly games, I mean like, when we talk, we talk about silly things, TOGETHER. We totally get along. When he and I are together, we are on the same level. Even when we're with our friends (we share the same friends), we are both immature-ish, but we are that way, TOGETHER. As long as you like him, he likes you, and you're ok with the thought of being together, GO FOR IT!

I want to tell the world, but I can't.

Hey, I wouldn't do it, but whatever floats your boat. Just keep in mind that come time to move out for college, tenth grade guys aren't exactly the long-distance relationship type, so you might now plan on a long-term thing.
