I am 15 years old, and I have been friends with a guy who is 10 years older
Visitor's Question from a 13-15 year old Female
I am 15 years old, and I have been friends with a guy who is 10 years older than me for 5 years. Over the years, our feelings about each other have changed, and we both can talk to each other about anything.
His parents dont want him talking to me (their reason is cuz hes mentally imature), but my parents know how i feel about him, and encourage us to talk to each other.
But I really miss him because i havent talked to him in a looong time. I moved away from his area, so i havent seen him either.
But whenever we're together we're always laughing.
What can I do? Please Help. Do you think that its bad that i'm friends with him cuz hes older??
So long as the friendship doesn't go sexual, then there's no problem with you being friends. But the second it crosses that line, then it's legally wrong and can land him in jail.
You can find new ways of keeping in contact. Since you're on the web, you can IM with him all day. You can write him long letters and mail them to him. You can get him to drive over to see you. All sorts of things to keep you in touch with each other.
