Plus, they're at two entirely different stages in life.
One is almost an adult (if he isn't already), and one is just starting high school.
They weren't my girlfriend, but that's not the point. In fact, one of the parents was demanding and demanded I drive her 15 and 13 year old.
Meanwhile all the slimy baloney heads are laughing all the way to the drug store. Nothing good can come out of it..wrecks everything because if a person is into getting it on outside of a real commitment as in life....theres no reason or pledge to resist fancy of another.
Our daughter started dating her 17-year-old boyfriend a few days before her 15th birthday. He is now 25 and it no longer seems like a huge difference in age.
Last week she turned 22 and got word that she was admitted to med school--her best birthday present of all. If we had arbitrarily kept them apart because of the age difference, she may have had more experience in dating, but we cannot imagine them being any happier.
WAKE UP The baloney head rubs his hands together and says oh boy have I got the right sucker.
This society is going NO WHERE ...a revolving dead end ...relationship disaster....everybody knows that....
A 17 year old is at a different place developmentally than a 14 year old.
They've experienced a lot of things that 14 year old hasn't yet. They're almost done with high school, where the freshman is just starting out.
She was 15 as a freshman her boyfriend was 16 turning 17 a couple days after she turned 16 he was a senior. You never know if someone was held back, someone started early etc etc..
We had a rule about when our daughter could start dating, not until she got to high school.
If I had a daughter heres what I would say to the guy ...after good guidance through the years with the girl....... a) She would like to have a future one day...wouldn't you ?
