I'm 18 an "adult" by law, but I'm still in High School, I still have "children" as friends, and I still find myself attracted to my 16 year old boyfriend.I know that a girl dating a younger guy is not usually the common thing, in fact, he is my first boyfriend that is younger than me.I am a senior and he is a junior and we're both comfortable with our age difference.

But even though he and I are comfortable with it his mother is not. His mother judged me for my age and hasn't even met me yet, though I've expressed several times that I want to meet her.

In fact she is rather upset with our relationship saying that I am an "adult" and he is a minor. Perhaps if she got to know me and realize that, even though I am an "adult" I'm still a high school teenager.

The thing I am worried about is that she could press charges against me for dating her 16 year old son.

We have not done anything sexual (unless kissing falls under those guidelines) and I am aware of the law that says it is illegal for anyone under the age of 17 to have sex.

I've already decided that if we kept our meetings just to school and the pubilc library then it would be fine, but still going against his mother's wishes.

He on the other hand doesn't want our relationship to change any.I'm really confused because even though I am an "adult" I am no where near ready to actually be one. I live with my mom and dad, heck, I still get grounded and have an 11 o'clock curfew.My boyfriend on the other hand has expressed his "desires" but so far I've kept strong.In seven months and 11 days he will be 17, but still I know I'm not ready to have sex and personally I don't think he is either.I was wondering what kind of charges his mother could press against me and what the punishment would be.She doesn't want us dating and basically told him that we (he and I) were not dating.
