We had to tell her that there is absolutely no way she can have sleepovers with the 13 year old and 17 old (which they were planning).
We've never fought with her in our life (she has always been so easy until now!
So the ripe old age of 14 -- the age when you still have pimples, are as insecure as can be and are unlikely to get anything more than a kiss from a woman your own age -- is the only time when you can enjoy dating a woman your own age? Add seven to that, so you can date a 12-year-old -- an older woman"?
What about if your 10-year-old looks at you and says, "I'm ready to date, Dad"? There is so much a 12-year-old can teach a 10-year-old -- advanced coloring, advanced texting, and so many other important life skills. You're 20 years old and, under this rule, you can date a 17-year-old. There you are in college, and you get to go back to high school again to find a girlfriend.
It's because of this urban legend that has gone around forever.
Based upon this rule, the only time that a man can date a woman his own age is when he's 14 years old (because half of 14 is seven, and seven plus seven is 14).
She was always the sweet, shy one, and so paranoid of her acne, which she has had from a young age.
Well, she has blossomed now into a gorgeous, tall bombshell (I hate to say it) but since she joined Performing Arts, and gotten lead roles, it has really boosted her self esteem.
I will give you the benefit of the doubt because you're writing and asking whether or not this is right, which tells me that your heart is pure-- you're just lonely for a certain kind of attention, and this boy is the one who happens to be giving it to you.
So let's focus on how you can make a connection like this with a guy your own age so you can let your young friend do the same.
And that means I can date a woman who is 16." From where did this ridiculous rule come?
