22 year old guy dating 17 year old
The Criminal Code does not now criminalize consensual sexual activity with or between persons 14 or over, unless it takes place in a relationship of trust or dependency, in which case sexual activity with persons over 14 but under 18 can constitute an offence, notwithstanding their consent.
Even consensual activity with those under 14 but over 12 may not be an offence if the accused is under 16 and less than two years older than the complainant.
As for age of consent and sex, you're probably right about not having to worry about it so soon, but you never know.
Waiting out the six weeks is just to cover you a**. A 60 yr old can have sex with a 14 year old so long as it isnt anal (age of consent for that is 18) and so long as that 60 yr old isnt in a position of authority ie teacher, cop, counsellor.
He's really mature and smart and not to toot my own horn or anything, but I'd say I'm pretty mature for my age too and I don't think my age should matter. :) it will mean nothing when you are 29 and he's 33 like my bf and I. if it isn't legal where you live, wait till you're 18 to have sex.
Maybe I'm just making a bigger deal out of it than it needs to be but I'm afraid he won't like me anymore when he knows how much younger I am. oh and also until you care about each other, of course!
Judging from my friend's attitudes (my age and younger) perhaps I'm using the age thing as an excuse for avoidance, but then again they're not the most reliable reference for morals. I don't think the "Happy Birthday" thing is even remotely likely within the 6 weeks.
She is very attractive which is somewhat intimidating, and also quite smart.I like to think I'm not the gutless push-over type, more of a nice guy with perhaps an overly cynical and embittered outlook on life, the universe and everything :-) However, when it comes to women liking me, I have a habit of pushing them away, out of self-defense or something along those lines...it'd take hours of heart-to-heart explanation which I cannot stomach at the best of times, so that brings me onto the much simplified subject of...(And I don't give a particular f*k if she's 17 5/6 or 18.)Basically the case is the same as asking whether or not a first year university student should be dating a fourth year university student. I don't know what the laws are in AU, but I think 18 is an adult universally. Edit: about age of consent, etc: the core of my post is not really about sex.If she's mature and the two of you can relate to each other as equals, there's no problem. I hope it works out and that two of you have a lot of fun and happiness together. A 14 year old can legally consent to sex with another 14, 15 or 16 year old, but not a 17 year old. I certainly do not think there is any danger of underage sex happening.
