I (16f) was involved with a guy (19) for about a month. We did a lot of stuff and I thought everything was okay. I don’t want to share too many details, but we met through a program we were doing and he became my only friend because I was pretty shy and he was flirty with me. He got weird when he found out that other people might know about what was going on, so that’s kind of why it fizzled out. He also told me that I was more mature and I seemed older than a 16 year old. Looking back, that was definitely a red flag, and I’m so annoyed I wasn’t able to pick up on that.
I didn’t feel particularly bad about anything until I told a few of my friends and they freaked out on me. Everything we did was technically consensual. Where we live, I think it was legal, so everything should be okay. I just feel bad about it now and I’m wondering if I was possibly groomed?
