Is it wrong for a 16-year-old girl to be in love with a 27-year-old?

Im 16 and with a 27 year old at the moment!! and looks

like we are going to be together for a long time .. am engaged to

him and am totally in love with him!!! so dont worry hun your not

on your own!! and its not wrong!! if you love him go 4 it and dont

worry what other people say and dont let them put you


No, its not wrong because I was 16 when I met my future husband

and he was 28, we have now been together for 8 years, been married

for four and a half years, have two children and we are still going

strong. There is so much you can both learn from each other, and I

think the danger would only arise from the fact that you may not be

emotionally ready to be involved with someone that much older. If

you feel you are, then the only way to find out is to go for it! Im

glad I did!

No, it isn't wrong at all! Just make sure that you don't rule

out guys that are actually attainable.

You can learn some very important things about yourself through

this too. Try to pinpoint what exactly it is about this great guy

that makes you crazy about him. These could be physical, but also

personality-wise too. You can learn what you are drawn to, and

learn to recognize those traits in other people too.

But don't feel like you're committing some horrible sin or

anything, what you are feeling is completely natural. Feelings are

never right or wrong, they are simply there. So, it is useless to

worry whether or not a feeling is right or wrong. What is right or

wrong is your action, your response to the feeling.

Yes, that's not right. It's not love, it's infatuation. The

outlook a 16 year old and a 27 year old have on life is completely

different. They will not have common ground, and nothing to build a

relationship off of. Bad idea.

: There is someone for everyone. If you like older men, and you

consider how kind he is, and he makes you laugh, you can be alright

with it. There are laws about under eighteen, but if you can get by

that, you have something that may be hard to find for other


"Oh_please,_person_above_the_person_above_me." id=

"Oh_please,_person_above_the_person_above_me.">Oh please, person

above the person above me.

Sweetie, there's nothing wrong with being in love with someone

older than you. My boyfriend's 20 and I'm 15! While you really

should aim for people in your age group, it's not like it's a total

sin. That's an 11 year age difference, but who cares? When you find

someone you truly care about and it's someone who puts your

feelings before theirs and vice versa, there's absolutely nothing

wrong with it! So good luck!
