Yes, it is, if sex is involved. If you are the one that's 16, wait until you are 18. Meanwhile, just be friends with the 20 year old, but don't get involved with them for now. If they want to get involved with you, ask yourself why? Is it because they wish to be in charge of the relationship as they are much older? They will get into trouble with the law if they want to be involved with you as you are underage at 16.
If you really wish to be dating now then you ought to date someone much closer to your own age and if there isn't anyone around, then wait until you're 18. Really, there is no rush to be dating. Just enjoy being with your friends for now and don't get pressured into having a boyfriend at 16 because there is plenty of time for that down the track.
I don't think it's ever illegal to "date" someone of a different age, but having sex with them is different. The laws are different depending on the state you're in (Assuming you're in the U.S.). Here in Ohio, the age of consent is 16, so there would be no issue. These are the facts. Is it a good idea? That falls into a grey area. 20 year olds and 16 year olds are usually at very different places in their lives, and maintaining a relationship could prove difficult. Whatever your decision, best of luck with it.
Age shouldnt play an important role in relationship as long as its not 50 years different lol
yes and no. check out you laws, and ask you r parents. where i live, its illeagal, but i was dating a 22 year old and i am 15-17, i never got caught and my parents never knew we broke up after dating 5-6 years. be careful and think is this what i want to do, do i love him, would i be willing to get in trouble, if all this is yes follow your heart, maybe people will understand.
Actually, in California, for example, it IS illegal if you plan on having sex; the age of consent is 18. If your parents or guardian wanted to make an issue of it, he could end up in jail.
Depends on the state.
But it's usually a very bad idea.
YES!!!!!! You can send him to jail if you have sex and what does a 20 y.o. man have in common with a 26 y.o. child if it isn't a desire for sex?
Checkout your local laws
