But we can acknowledge the appeal of dating older dudes and still be grounded in a, perhaps harsh, reality at the same time: A relationship between a teen and an adult isn’t real. Duh, nobody is going to deny that feelings can’t be felt.
I have no interest in sitting here and saying that your heart palpitations for an older guy you might be dating aren’t real. But when we’re talking about a relationship between a teenager and an adult who is significantly older–yeah, not just some 16-year-old dating an 18-year-old–there is often something weirdly fraudulent about it.
Believe it or not in another two years you’re going to have the same reaction (it’s normal, seriously).
While we’re always growing and maturing and learning new things about ourselves, this is a lot more pronounced in our teens than as adults.
In an interview this morning, Tyga denied that he’s sleeping with Kylie and says that they’re not dating, they’re just friends.
People can believe what they want to believe, but the fact is that the Internet is exploding with whether or not a relationship between a 25-year-old dude and a teenage girl is okay.
You’re probably borderline cringing right now (it’s normal, seriously).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.Seriously, you’ll probably bookmark it.) Have you been in a relationship with an adult as a teenager? I was a beautiful girl, tall for my age, long limbs and long hair, and I attracted the attention of older men from the time I was 10. And it made me uncomfortable, and it made me scared.
