Is it weird for a junior in high school to date a freshman? I really like this guy and we spend a lot of time together but he’s two years younger than me! Would it be too weird for us to date?
If you really like this guy, and you two get along really well, then you should feel comfortable dating him even though he’s younger. When it comes to relationships, the thing that really matters if both people have a connection and make each other happy.
That being said, I know that it might seem weird to date someone younger than you. You might be worried about what other people will think, and that’s completely understandable. But in the end, all that matters is how you and this guy feel about each other. It can be hard to go against what society thinks is “normal”, but if you two really like each other, than you shouldn’t feel like you have to make your age an issue.
But while the age difference shouldn’t be a major issue, it’s still something to consider. Keep in mind that gURLs naturally mature faster than guys, so don’t be surprised if you two aren’t on exactly the same wavelength. But as long as he makes you happy, feel free to date him, because it isn’t weird at all.
WDYT, gURLs? Have you ever dated someone younger than you? Would you ever date someone a different age than you? Do you think it’s weird when gURLs do that? Give us your advice and discuss below!
