Are you going to introduce him to your friends without being worried that half of them are going to want to call the police?
One thing is certain: As immature as dudes your age can be, there's only one time to have a teen romance and that's now.
Charges can be made, people have to go to court and that cool older guy you're hooking up with might be labeled as a sex offender for the rest of forever.
Hey, he knew the consequences and he decided that he didn't care, but do you want to get wrapped up in all of that?
Is this dude you're with literally in a position of power over you, like in a teacher or coach type of way? Are you going to go to school dances with this guy?
But there are some things you need to be realistic about if it’s going to.
First, you need to know what you’re comfortable with—and you need to be confident about telling him or exactly what that is.
It’s really not hard to see the appeal in dating an older guy when you’re a teenager.
You’re not really feelin’ the fact that dudes in your grade still can’t manage to wear deodorant every day and they still think that poop jokes are as good as humor gets (who doesn’t love the occasional poop joke but come on).
