Dating Someone Younger

We all know about it. We see it everyday. But how many of us say or do anything about it?
I’d overheard a story a few days ago about a man at the ripe age of 28 in a consensual relationship with a 16 year old girl. This shocked me as I wondered, do her parents know of this? Do her friends know, but aren’t speaking out about it?

For those of you wondering, “Why is this man not in prison?” Or “Does this girl have daddy issues?” That, I can not answer.
But, for those of you who believe that it is acceptable for a 28 year old man to be with and sleep with a 16 year old girl, think about it twice.
Here is something for you to think about. Suppose you receive a letter in the mail informing you that a registered sex offender resides in the home just across the street from you and your family? Would you still let your children, brothers, sister, nieces, nephews, or cousins play out in the street without adult supervision? Would you all of a sudden become wary of your
neighbors’ activities?
Yes. You most certainly would. Unless you, yourself, are a sex offender.
So, why would you think so poorly of that sex offender if you condone a 28 year old and a 16 year old’s relationship? Doesn’t that make that man the same as your hypothetical neighbor?

Think about it.

    Thought provoking stuff. I have almost always dated older guys but when I was 16 the guy would be 17. I always have to question why someone who is old enough to socialise in bars and clubs would want to be with someone that much younger. It begs the question – can he not meet any women closer to his age? And if not, why not?
    And how would people feel if it were an 18 year old girl and a 30 year old man?
    I also wonder why most stories are older guy and younger girl – what would we say if it were the woman who was the 28 year old and the man (boy) 16?
    Sorry – lots of questions but.. age gaps is something I have thought about a lot.

  3. Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could find a captcha
    plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble finding one?

    Thanks a lot!
