Im 16 and dating a 21 year old, is there something wrong with this?

Im 16 and my boyfriend is 21, he has been in my family for 11 years. He's always been there for me, he used to be like a brother to me but then our families stopped talking. When I started to talk to him again we hung out every weekend because he lives next door to me. The one day we started snuggling, this went on for 5 months and now we're dating. Our relationship is not sexual at all, we haven't even kissed yet.
Is our age difference such a big deal

It may seem odd now as you are 16, which some people think is the age of a child, but a 5 year gap isn't something to worry about at all. As long as he is responsible, mature and safe with you, I think it's great. Take this relationship slow and do what makes you feel comfortable, don't let him make you do things you don't want to do just because he's an 'adult'.

Yes its wrong! I don't get how people don't see anything wrong with this. 1 its illegal in most states because now a days all relationships require sex. 2 hes 21 and is either in collage or graduated from it dating a highschooler. Doesnt it make you wonder what is so wrong with this person that they can't get someone their own age? Or maybe older than 18 and not in highschool? Or what kind of person dates children when he should be on the track to starting a life and family for himself rather than being held back by a highschooler or holding himself back by playing little kid games and dating a highschooler? And to anyone who says youre mature for dating an older guy is too naive to understand that youre both immature on a mental level to understand that his maturity level is so low that he has to date highschoolers and yours is so low that you cant see wrong in this. A guy at that age should have everything set for the begining of his life and family not setting up dates with a girl whose 5 years younger, a minor, and still in highschool. Neither of you are mature if you date.

I live in Australia. He has been in my family for 11 years.
Not all relationships require sex, we haven't even talked about it.
Neither of us are holding each other back, he has a job his own place with his mate, he has 3 dogs and take very good care of them and he's not just some guy that tunes all these girls and tries to get in everyones pants/ His sister, mother, my mother, my sister and Mallee are the only girls he talks to by choice.

first of all you are too young to get into any relationship. I;d suggest you to concentrate on your studies as of now and latter may be give a chance if you still feel the same for him.
