My son is in HS and there are plenty of 17 year old seniors dating 15 year old sophmores.
It doesn't matter if they are boys or girls, there is a big difference.
In high school, one grade level is about all I would be comfortable with.
For a senior dating a freshman in college, not that big of a difference but more then that there is. They are one year apart in school, but two years apart in age.

I'm really uncomfortable with kids under 18 dating anyone over 18, besides the fact it's illegal where I live!But even at 18, I feel like it's wierd that they'd date someone in their 20s. There is a HUGE difference between most 17 & 18 year olds, and most people in (even) their early 20s.We make a LOT of changes, and rapidly, in those first years out of high school.While I know there is no "one size fits all" rule regarding dating, I thinking that teenagers dating older people is generally a really bad idea.There is a HUGE difference between most 17 & 18 year olds, and most people in (even) their early 20s.Why would it be weird for an 18 year old and 20 year old to date?
