Is a 19 year old dating a 16 year old bad

Not a really big deal. Are you worried about statutory rape becoming an issue? In many places, a close age gap is enough to prevent the charge. For example, when I was 17, I became pg by a 19yo.

I generally prefer to see partners of similar "age and stage" and this is an age group with wide variety on that. An ambitious young women with her eye on college at 17 shouldn't date the same young person as her age peer who is hanging out behind the Dairy Queen might find suitable.

As long as you feel it would be consensual no matter what they "got in to". That is always were I drew the line. Originally Posted by Blake Zangetsu.
