If he's above your level intellectually, then he doesn't respect you factand he's probably going to cheat on you and string you along so long as he gets exactly what you think the 17 year old boys want from you.

They clearly don't, or he wouldn't be with you. Sorry, but it's true.
No, it is not a huge problem. Its just the fact that people assume he's a creep and act like its a huge deal, there are plenty of men are out there who are not creeps and would date a girl that is only a few years younger is not a big deal, but if he is nice, ask for your consent: like giving you a kiss, are putting his arms around you you'll be fine.
Also in some states there is the age of consent which is their is legal age to have sex which is around at years, but I would wait for sex around at Also your parents need to know even if they won't accept at first and plus your not really a child anymore your going to be an adult too just be careful around the people who judge him.
