At 11 hun, this is not true love. This is what is referred to by us adults as puppy love.
Have you asked your mom and dad if they will let you date him? They probably won't. The age of consent in your state is 16, which means that he is above the age limit and can very well get in trouble if you two did something behind your parents backs and they found out.
Now as far as a 16 year old loving an 11 year old....hmmm, this makes me wonder what he really has on his mind.
