Older boys dating younger girls
Having a partner who is much older or younger has become somewhat trendy in today’s celebrity-obsessed culture, perhaps even more so among young adults.
Bennett, a senior in college, and Thompson, a junior in high school, didn’t think about dating each other when they first met.
I can’t believe that someone made something like that …,” Bennett said before trailing off in a fit of laughter. Female maturity, both emotional and physical, is often two years ahead of their same age male counterparts, the study said.
Teen boys also expressed less confidence in navigating relationships than girls of the same age.
“I remember that we were paired up as study buddies for the eight-week session.
In the beginning I only thought about teaching Mia ways to calm down and convince herself about her own abilities,” Bennett said. During those eight weeks, it wasn’t uncommon for her parents to see me around her, but as we began to grow closer, it was her mom that noticed first and confronted us.” “It wasn’t as bad as you think,” Thompson said about her parents’ reaction to dating a college student.
