High school girl dating younger guy

Hi Heather, Is it weird for a junior in high school to date a freshman?

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.

Now, however, social scientists have examined them exhaustively and empirically.

These are truisms known to anyone who has watched 10 minutes of a teen movie or spent 10 minutes in a high school cafeteria.

So are some other old prom-era chestnuts: Teen boys are primarily—obsessively?

—interested in sex, whereas girls, no matter how boy-crazy, tend to focus on relationships.

And, just as an anecdote, I was once a 16 year old who dated a 14 year old (he was 15 by the time we started dating), and there was some weirdness from other people.

In the Darwinian world of high-school dating, freshman girls and senior boys have the highest chances of successfully partnering up. And they have found that for the most part, they're accurate.

Keep in mind that g URLs naturally mature faster than guys, so don’t be surprised if you two aren’t on exactly the same wavelength. Would you ever date someone a different age than you?

But as long as he makes you happy, feel free to date him, because it isn’t weird at all.

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.
