Hello, I'm 16 years old and I've been dating my 21 yr old boyfriend for almost a year. My parents like him but they aren't very open minded about our age difference. I've always been a very mature, responsible, free spirited girl with an open view on the world. My boyfriend is my first serious relationship, and we have a lot in common as far as our interests, likes/dislikes. He's an amazing guy and he makes me happy. The age of consent where I live is 17, and I'll be 17 in 4 months. My boyfriend is a positive influence on my life, and we are very serious. But in your opinions(if you have teenage daughters) is our age difference too big?
