Matthew

Matthew, age 14
Huntington Beach, CA (1994)

This picture was taken in my bathroom at my mom's house. I was a little "gentler" than the other boys -  and the Ursula artwork is a dead give away.


My 19 year old boyfriend took the picture. I knew I was gay at a very young age, like 9 or 10.

Looking at this pic now makes me smile 'cuz I grew up more butch than I started out, I suppose. But I adore me back then, too.

Matthew's first, famous-person same sex crushes:
Atreyu (the Great Warrior in "The Neverending Story")
Aladdin (from Disney's "Aladdin")

A 19 yo dating a 14 yo?!?! One word comes to mind: statutory!

My mother loved him and I love him still... We are just friends now but I was fully aware of what I was doing and the thought of anyone pressing charges never even crossed anyone mind.

Thanks for sharing. It's (age difference) is rather common. I can't see the problem with a relationship between two young people, both in their teens, if it's what they want. Nineteen, though technically an adult, is not very mature. And again, I believe it's a far more common occurrence, than it is a rarity.
