Hear me out: When you’re a teen girl dating an adult, what does your relationship look like? Are you showing off your new boyfriend to your friends? Are you kind of sort of gushing about how great they are to your nosy mom?Are you inviting them to that school dance that you know is going to be super lame but you’ll go anyway just to people watch and laugh?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.Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock over the past 24 hours (or you’re just not really into Twitter beef), you probably heard about the spat between Amber Rose and Khloe Kardashian.The issue: Amber Rose was side-eyeing the fact that rapper Tyga, 25-years-old, is allegedly dating Khloe’s 17-year-old sister Kylie Jenner.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.
” So many of you, our awesome readers, and teen girls in general, are effing smart. Also, sometimes older dudes are just really attractive and we can admit that without having daddy problems!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.That’s why a 23-year-old might cringe at the idea of dating a 16-year-old and why you probably cringe at the idea of dating a nine-year-old, but a 25-year-old and a 31-year-old isn’t all that weird.Does every single relationship between a teen girl and an older dude end up being some hell hole of misery straight out of a Lifetime movie?
