Like, cool, this dude was old enough to see The Strokes in concert 10 years ago when they actually had good albums out.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.As a young woman in my early ’20s I can tell you that there are dudes my age (sadly) who aren’t mature whatsoever and can’t date a woman their age to save their life.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.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?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.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?

Before rushing over to the vehicle, he hugged every member of the family, prompting Madison's mother, who was filming, to shout: 'Go check out your car! 'The youngsters have not shared any other details about their relationship other than that they have been together for 11 months.
It is not clear how old they are or how far along in high school they are, though it appears she is a junior in high school and he attends the same school.
If you’ll agree that there is a power dynamic involved in interactions between adults and teenagers, why would that go out the window in a romantic relationship, especially when we bring in the gender component (older man, younger woman)? Also, while an older guy might seem way more on your maturity level than the bros in your English class who only wear gym shorts, is this older guy necessarily on the same maturity level of other women their age?
If they aren’t, that’s a huge red flag, girl, and says a lot about the dude you’re dealing with.
