Dating relationship for teen
A relationship that is fraught with dubious legality and secrecy might sound dope and it might very well be fun, but you might find yourself missing out on some of the more normal aspects of a relationship that isn’t problematic.
Also, as annoying and irritating as this question is, it holds some legitimate weight: Why is a dude in grad school interested in dating a teenage girl?
That’s why a 23-year-old might cringe at the idea of dating a 16-year-old and why you probably cringe at the idea of dating a nine-year-old, but a 25-year-old and a 31-year-old isn’t all that weird.
More often than not these relationships are secretive and denied when convenient.
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?
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.
The outer rim of the wheel is physical violence as violent acts or the threat of violent acts are what abusers use to get and keep their power and control over their dating partners.
