Is it weird to date a boy younger than you?
Theres nothing wrong with liking or dating a boy whos a little younger than you. Even you really feel a connection with this boy, dont let one measly year get in the way of that. Maybe your friends think the age difference is such a big deal because he acts more than a year younger.
How many years younger can you date legally?
What Is the Age of Consent? Federal law makes it criminal to engage in a sexual act with another person who is between the age of 12 and 16 if they are at least four years younger than you. Each state takes a different approach as the age of consent has ranged from 10 to 18.
