Dear Carolyn: You posted a question concerning the 15-year-old dating the 21-year-old; I read through readers' answers and there really didn't seem to be a consensus.
So, yes, you can get in trouble if you were to pursue a physical relationship with him. Even if you and he had absolutely nothing in common, he'd be interested in you.
You might be interpreting his interest in you as maturity. But as the adult, it's your responsibility to realize that the relationship is wrong.
Just wait until the age of consent in your state or find someone closer to your own age.
Here’s what’s happened in the past year — two girlfriends have gotten engaged, and one has her condo on the market and is looking with her boyfriend to buy a new place and move in together. So, because of that and the fact that we live longer, she says, it’s worth putting the time and energy into looking for love regardless of your age.
