Hello. So I was just wondering recently, I’m currently dating a 14 year old. We have not, and will not engage in any sexual interaction (no nude photos, no sex, no inappropriate touching, the most we will do is hug). I am 17 years old, turning 18 at the end of the month. She is 14, turning 15 in August. Could our relationship get me into trouble with the law, even if we do not engage in anything sexual?

If your girlfriend is under 16 years of age and you are sexually intimate with her, then you are breaking the law as she is under the age of legal consent. Although there are only three years’ difference between you and your girlfriend, there can be a big difference in maturity and development between the ages of 14 and 17.

I'm a 12 year old girl and have a crush on a girl at my school. Is this normal? I'm not homophobic but I'm scared because I think I'm bisexual and I'm only 12.

Having a crush on someone either of the same sex or opposite sex is really normal and lots of 12 year olds have them.
