Age differences do matter in a relationship, especially in high school. For example, a 14-year-old student dating someone that is the same age isnt criticized or even talked about much. Because the two people in the relationship are the same age, it is considered normal in todays society.
What is an acceptable age difference in a relationship in high school?
If you go 2 or 3 years younger I would highly recommend getting to know their parents and seeing if they approve of the idea of dating. If you go 2–3 years older you arent going to have to deal with that situation. If you are 18 then dont got younger than 16. If youn 17 or younger then 14 should be the highest.
Is 15 and 17 a good age difference?
Is 15 and 17 an acceptable age difference for dating? Two years age difference is negligible by most measurements. The trick is about the sex factor, and the fact that minors are protected by law, and with good reason.
Is it weird to date someone a year older in high school?
God no, people date younger and older people all the time. It feels a little weird now because youre both young, but a year difference really isnt difference. Heck, most parents have a bigger difference than a year, even mine have an age difference of three years. Dont worry about it, its really not strange at all.
Should I let my 15 year old date a 17 year old?
As mentioned above, a minors consent to sexual contact is irrelevant in the eyes of the law in California (in many other states, the age of consent is younger). “Dating” can certainly imply sexual contact, which is illegal between a fifteen-year-old and an eighteen-year-old.
