My boyfriend is three years younger than I am and people seem to constantly bother me about it. I want to stay with him but I want to be left alone. How can I keep a healthy mind set and carry on with my relationship?
ehhh hes 16? since your 19 thats kinda gross since hes a teen and your an adult buttttt think of it as him being 20 and you being 23 that seems like nothing like 3 years isent a big age difference but since hes a teen it seems that way to people since hes still a kid and your considered like an adult.. but who cares what everyone else thinks like what ever makes you happy and when you two are older the age difference isent gonna effect u and it isent gonna seem so big to everyone else you know
Your profile says you're 19 ... is that accurate?
That makes him 16. 3 years isn't that large of a gap, but you have to consider that you are legally an adult while he is still a teenage boy who hasn't quite grown up yet.
It doesn't matter how "mature" you think he is ... if you try to engage him into an adult relationship, you are risking more than a little ribbing from your family and friends.
Just follow your heart. It is you not they to get along with him. If he is nice to you, and really do not like the person as others said, you should insist. If he is the guy with bad things, you should have think carefully about your relationship.
