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.
More often than not these relationships are secretive and denied when convenient.Well, let’s be real: If you’re underage in your state and you’re having sex with somebody who is of age and y’all are caught, what are the chances of you two owning up to being in a sexual relationship?Slim to none because, uh, this dude you’re hooking up with has zero interest in going to jail for statutory rape and having the label of “sexual predator” on his record for the rest of his life.As rad as it is to bond over your same taste in music and other interests, you still have to ask yourself if this relationship in the long run has more pros or cons, just as you would with any other relationship.And I know, I know, all of this feels like a silly number game, but let’s be real with ourselves here: Age difference is a bigger deal when you’re younger than when you’re older.
If they aren’t, that’s a huge red flag, girl, and says a lot about the dude you’re dealing with.
