I have been attending my current church now for three and a half years and I could not love it or my church family any more than I do. My issue is that I am trying really hard not to fall for my pastor’s son. I am not old enough to date, which I agree with since I believe dating in high school is meaningless anyway, but I still find myself starting to fall for him. The reason why I have tried so hard not to fall for him is because he is four years (and a few months) older than I am. If we were closer in age I know I would have fallen for him long ago. If I were to think of basic traits of a “dream guy” (such as truly loves Jesus, is a leader, intelligent, etc.), he would meet all of them. But realistically, would the age gap be too large after I graduate high school? My parents absolutely approve of him and tease me about liking him. Is the age gap too large?

I think that four years are totally okay 🙂 My boyfriend is almost 7,5 years older than me. However, I think the numbers don’t always tell you something about the person. It’s more about both partners’ maturity.
So yes, it’s not unrealistic at all that you’d fall for him (and he for you) when you’ve graduated 🙂

Yeah it’s fine. There’s a six year age gap between my parents 😛

Thanks, y’all! I’m trying not to fall or him, but it sure would be a lot easier if he wasn’t such a great guy. Thanks for the advice 🙂

I think the age gap is great! My uncle and aunt are 12 years apart. I actually like a guy 12 years older than I am as well. The important question I think is what is his personality like? And if he loves God and is a great leader and treats you and others well then why not?

Compared to a lot of adult relationships, that is not a big age gap at all. But say if you’re 16 and he’s almost 21, well that’s kind of iffy. Just remember that true love waits and is patient. In just a few years, if he is interested, go for it! He seems like a great guy.
