Hi Mario,

for girls 16 is the age of consent. However, please be sure that this is what both of you want, and don't rush into anything just because your partner is 16. Also make sure you use a condom if you do decide to sleep together. You should also consider her parents response and how they will feel about this. Most parents understand that at this age relationships become sexual, but they will want to know that you are both being responsible and safe as well.
