In tenth grade, we made friends with a group of older guys who hung out on the main street of town, which ran parallel to the local university — guys who'd once gone to our same high school and had never left the social scene. I remember how quiet it was, birds soaring overhead, no other sound. I grew to dread the moments we were alone, especially when I needed a ride home at the end of the night to make my curfew.
When they weren't doing BMX and skateboard tricks in front of the post office, they were spending what money they had at the nearby arcade, or spinning on stools and shooting straw wrappers in their favorite burger joint, just across the street. We had gotten in the habit of him driving me home, and my suddenly wanting to make different arrangements seemed to inconvenience everyone.
And that means I can date a woman who is 16." From where did this ridiculous rule come?
There was several years between my parents and they were married for 34 years before my dad passed away but things have changed so much in the past 20 years.
So the ripe old age of 14 -- the age when you still have pimples, are as insecure as can be and are unlikely to get anything more than a kiss from a woman your own age -- is the only time when you can enjoy dating a woman your own age? Add seven to that, so you can date a 12-year-old -- an older woman"?
What about if your 10-year-old looks at you and says, "I'm ready to date, Dad"? There is so much a 12-year-old can teach a 10-year-old -- advanced coloring, advanced texting, and so many other important life skills. You're 20 years old and, under this rule, you can date a 17-year-old. There you are in college, and you get to go back to high school again to find a girlfriend.
I just feel jn todays society when a man of this age will not even consider a woman his age and focusen in young girls is not right maybe Im wrong but I am a mother and Id be very upset if my 18 year old came in with a man my age. However there is a 15 year age gap between me and my husband.
My mom is only 4 years older than him so looking at that perspective I don't know. Not all guys that are older than the female are total pervs though some are, just like not all young women are immature, some are more mature for their age.
