Dating girl young
Recently, I wrote a post on “The 11 Difference Between Dating a Boy vs a Man“.
The post can have the genders swapped and most points would still apply.
Having an older boyfriend also becomes a status symbol, a way for the teenage girl to say that she is already grown-up and part of the adult world. Because of this, it may make it easier for her to start neglecting things like her peers and school work.
After all, why should she worry about passing a chemistry test when her boyfriend is worried about paying his rent or losing his job.
A lucky few end up in marriage, which is often proceeded by a child and continues with multiple children, poverty, physical and substance abuse. Let him know that if he really cares about her, he will abide by your wishes since you only have her best interest in mind and he should too if he cares about her.
Depending on the age of your daughter and the age of the man, it may be appropriate to get law enforcement involved.
Most of these relationships usually fizzle out if the teenager is allowed to come into her own in a healthy way, but often not before she is scarred in someway.The thing is, teenager girls often don’t realize just how unequal the relationship with an older man usually is.Usually the older man has more power simply from the fact that he is older, and they usually have more money and resources than the teenager or her friends.Eventually he left her for a woman his own age and that should have been the end of it, but now she is talking about dating his OLDER brother who is married with a kid, but text messaged her one night at 3Am, “I think you are so sexy, and I’ve been fantasizing about you”, from his wive’s phone nonetheless.Once again, all bad signs, but she’s an emotional, hormonal, vulnerable, teenager trying to belong so she see’s this as another challenge. Chemistry doesn’t know have rigid age boundaries so there is a chance that there are genuine feelings there.
Teenage girls who date older men are more likely to get pregnant than teenage girls who date same age males for several reasons: First of all, don’t freak out.
