15 year old daughter dating 17 year old
Every chance they get their faces are stuck together, and the other day I noticed a hicky under her collarbone.We require doors to be open in the family room (or wherever they are) when he’s over, but I can’t be aware every time she sees him or when she’s out with friends.So these dudes find it easier to attract the attention of teen girls who might give them the time of day instead. No matter how old you are, you can be susceptible of manipulation, and dudes like that are at manipulating girls into thinking that they’re cool and interesting when they really aren’t all that cool and interesting.Like, cool, this dude was old enough to see The Strokes in concert 10 years ago when they actually had good albums out.
You’re probably borderline cringing right now (it’s normal, seriously).
This isn’t denying the awesomeness of teenage girls, but rather fairly questioning the motivation involved.
If you’ll agree that there is a power dynamic involved in interactions between adults and teenagers, why would that go out the window in a romantic relationship, especially when we bring in the gender component (older man, younger woman)? Also, while an older guy might seem way more on your maturity level than the bros in your English class who only wear gym shorts, is this older guy necessarily on the same maturity level of other women their age?
Believe it or not in another two years you’re going to have the same reaction (it’s normal, seriously).
While we’re always growing and maturing and learning new things about ourselves, this is a lot more pronounced in our teens than as adults.
