I can't say reading these responses and having 12 hours to mull things over is enough to make a decision, so I can't really promise that I'll be updating this thread with a final decision. However, they were great for each other. Edit- I also married that same guy, were 3 years apart some times and 2 years apart other times. He had been through heartbreak plenty of times before and she wasn't sure i was as serious as he might be. That's pretty sad to mature to such an age and still know so little about what it is to be a man.
Surely people of these ages are in a different place in their lives and it wouldn't work. If the legal age was 15 or 16, a lot of people would freak out. I'm also not ok with her having sex either, but am not stupid. So, an 18 year old can definitely excite your life and show you ways to have fun. This whole subject of age difference is notably an often recurring theme in these forums, and frankly, I'm a bit perplexed as to why it continually resurfaces. She had a great guy in front of her and she wants to throw that away.
She's too young with no experience, that explains it all. I can honestly say i truly love my partner, and that age difference is rarely an issue. Therefore he comes here to accomodate my schedule and spends the night etc. Even if you do spend time with this guy, your priorities may change later in life and you could decide he isn't right for you. In short, he is not doing something remarkably weird.
I mean are if it's more sexual than love then, yes it's alittle bad. This is where they are not understanding whats happening. I've loved women since before I became a man. Thanks for reading and hopefully providing some feedback. Take it from me, my ex-wife was much younger than me and I'm now happily married to a drama-free woman much closer to me in age. I'm 24 going on 25 in 2 years, i met a girl about a year ago, who now is 17, going on 18 in 1 month. Just because its correct on legal paper does it make.
But I am me - who knows what she will do. Recommended for five to sexual relationship, an adult. So I recently started to date a 16 year old girl. Unfortunately, as a freshman in college who is turning 20 in four months, I feel extremely weird in this position, and the friends I've spoken to about it don't support me. . Just because you and your husband made poor choices well, only poor if you think so , doesn't mean your daughter will! At 18, there'a also going to be no telling her that you know better.
They need to be honest with themselves and with each other about why they are having their relationship. She has only had one boyfriend in the past and they only dated in groups, so this is all new to us. It doesn't matter if the parents consent to this action. Our bond is like no other, and coming from broken families ourselves we wouldnt commit to each other the way we have so quickly unless we were certain that this was something special, and it really is. No matter how well intentioned you may be, not allowing her to think for herself is going to make her resentful and push her toward the guy you think is wrong for her. That's pretty clearly in not-weird territory. He was most certainly not in high school, and I really don't know why my parents allowed it.
But in all honestly, i know we are perfect for eachother, and would and could be together forever without any problems, i wish more than anything that he wwould just realize that, I want to tell him, or ask him rather. I have tried talking to my boy and tell him that they are other women out there and he should move on. Now I'm not saying that this man is a child-molester. Your age of consent to be atleast 18 year old when he can legally have sex with a 16-year-old female classmate no. If it were up to my husband, our daugther would never go out at all! Do we trust our daughter to make good decisions? Of course, she had her concerns but she knew that i was a very head strong person and if that i honestly thought this is what i wanted i would go for it, so she supported me.
If you're trying to make decisions for someone who, in the eyes of the law, is a legal adult capable of making their own decisions, then you're being overprotective. My partner and i tried and have been blessed with true love and happiness because of it, and i would hate to see you miss out on that opportunity. I dont know whats gonna happen with your buddy but I know this much - if he seeks a flawless figure, good fun, naivety and innocence - he will get that with his young lady and all the growing pains that come with it. This 30 year old guy is working 3 jobs right now and is not really stable. It doesn't sound like much now when they have been happily married for almost 20 years and have 3 kids.
I feel that she needs the time to develop on her own without the overpowering influence of an older boyfriend. She married a significantly older man of a different race she's caucasian and he's hispanic. He suddenly calls her and told her he misses her, and she forgets everything that she had with my homeboy. But, if she's that unstable she might not be the best choice for your friend. A female reader, anonymous, writes 24 August 2010 : I am currently in a situation where i have been seeing a guy who is 26 going on 27 in january and im 18. I was recently very sick for about 2 months i still am sick actually and constantly going in and out of hospital. Whether you're 13 to three two 15-year-olds engage in tasmania.
