At first I thought it was weird because I'm 17 and he's 14 but now the idea is sortof growing on me.
I don't think dating younger is weird but when I think about dating someone 3 years older than me I'm kind of creeped out. You know you don't have a hold on him. If you think like a full grown man and she thinks like a child, dating is wrong, very wrong. They should arise organically and occur when neither of you is upset or angry with the other. Ideally, conversations about dating for 14 year olds happen in small doses.
