18 year old dating 23 year old
But say you both have equal experience, and you treat each other kindly, that seems normal. get over the fact youre different ages, and i'd say dont worry about it.I'm 21 and my boyfriend is 28; we met when I was 19 and he was 27. some people have like a 12 year age difference and theyre very happy together. but if youre gonna treat her any differently than you've treated all your past girlfriends just BECAUSE shes younger, i think thats wehre the line get drawn...Sometimes there is an issue with emotional maturity, but most of the time it works just fine. you put up walls and paint them all a shade of gray. I want to support her to start thinking through some of this for herself, but whereas she used to have very good judgment, these days she's running on low self esteem and hormones and I believe would follow anybody home who told her she had beautiful eyes. I talked to her about birth control and safe sex and she clearly was not ready. She went to his house once or twice, all when parents were home. When she has been out later with others I often pick her up (the joys of cell phones! I guess when there is another boyfriend I will want to meet him also.
( And yes, we've been addressing the low esteem for years.)She has no experience with dating. I say I could get behind that better if he would stop commenting on her physical beauty and if she would stop gushing. When she saw him I kept my cell phone on and when they were alone for the first time and he was pressuring her for sex, she called me and I picked her up immediately. I think it's a matter of what you are comfortable with and what she wants too.
