I am a single 23 year old girl. I am single due to the fact that I have been in and out of the hospital for the last 5-6 years.
Also,until recently I was living in an area that you could pretty much say was abandoned because there was no one to meet and nothing to do, more or less. On top of it I have a difficult time breaking the ice with people, let alone boys, so it has been hard to meet anybody. And the times that I have the majority of them have either been players and/or took advantage of me.
Ok, my question: I would NEVER have a sexual relationship with anyone under the age of 18 because I am not some perverted sicko. However, there is this boy who recently came into my life, who is only fourteen years old (and profoundly mature for his age) and I sort of have a crush on him. He makes me smile/laugh all the time (a lot of laughs I missed out on while in the hospital); He is always checking up on me to make sure that I am feeling okay whenever I am sad or depressed; I am exceedingly insecure about my body and he told me that first of all I am a very pretty girl and have both a beautiful smile and pretty eyes and that secondly, I am so beautiful inside that it doesn't matter what I look like on the outside. Is it messed up to have a crush on someone so much younger?
Are these feelings normal...
