Like, if you're a teenager, is it okay to date someone 4-5 years older than you? Like a 15 year old dating a 20 year old or a 16 year old dating a 25 year old. Personally I think that if you're mature enough and at least almost done with high school, you should be able to date whoever you want as long as your parents approve of them. In society today, age doesn't matter. Legally, it may not be acceptable, but you can't help who you fall for, right?

A teenager is an underdeveloped person. They have not finished growing, learning, and they receive a lot of hormones that influence everyday life decisions as well as important decisions. One thing that occurs is denial of the hormones. Because a teenager has little control over their hormones, they tend to give in to the hormone effect. An adult, person out of their teens, is more if not fully developed compared to a teen. Because of the knowledge that adults are expected to have compared to teens, as well as a higher expectation of taking on more responsibility, they can use this generalization to manipulate the mind of the impressionable teenager. The simple hormonal and knowledge border seems to be too much of an obstacle to get around. Of course, not all cases are like this, but like with all generalizations, some do fall through the cracks. The odds are not in the favor of anyone who pursues the avenue of dating outside a I'd say two year difference. There is also concerns for generation gaps and the change of otherwise professional relationships.
