I do not think that 16 year olds should be aloud to date fourteen year olds. it is not only immoral but also intolerable. it is along the verge of pedophilia. its just not safe

21 year olds are allowed to date 19 year olds. 36 year olds are allowed to date 34 year olds. Freaking Hugh Hefner dates women 60 years younger than himself, women 30 years younger than his daughter.
This ties into this debate because if people really want to be together, then they should, no matter the specific reason.
And, as for the pedophile comment: the law states that the lowest a relationship can go in age is an 18yrs old and a 15 yr old.

can you please reference that law or website where it states that and that is true but what I'm only referring to high school students i.e. a senior dating a freshman...usually the only reason for a senior dating a female freshman is because of sexual intercourse and lust to do it.

It has been widely said that one of the best parts of going to school is that the students can meet new people and new friends and, yes, find romance. So, the question I pose to you is why do the two individuals involved in the romance have to be in the same class?
You mentioned morals before. Well, newsflash: there are way more immoral things happening in the world than a freshman and a senior falling in love (ie. wars, murder, crime, etc.).
You also mentioned lust. That shouldn't even be a factor because, starting around 9th grade, there is lust at every age, especially adult.
