Relationships can be a very controversial subject for a lot of families. I know many families who do not condone relationships unless you are going to court/date the man that you are going to marry. Now my opinion on relationships is that they are fine to have as long as you have boundaries. A relationship without boundaries never turn our well. If you are still living at home with your parents, I would definitely suggest discussing it with them first. Just get your parents opinion on relationships, and go from there. My parents and I have discussed dating, and for me it is okay if I get into a relationship whenever I feel the time is right.
Now the question if the guy should always be older than the girl. I think it really depends upon the person and what they want. I know many couples where the girl is older than the guy. To answer the question I don't think it is wrong. As long as both people have a mature attitude I think it doesn't really matter on the age.
I hope this helped a little to all of you that had questions. Please comment below your opinion on relationships too! I would love to hear them!
