18 year old guy dating a 16 year old
It's one thing to express concern, but if you push too hard it's going to be perceived as meddling, which only causes resentment and shuts the other parties off to any advice you might render.Part of being an adult, means making mistakes on your own.
I just feel that Love is Patient and that she didnt want to give it a chance.btown ... In all reality, he may be the better choice than the 30 year old.
if it was a situation where my 18 year old daughter had to choose between a respectful, responsible, and well meaning 30 year old, versus a guy her own age who had no job, no responsibility, and was just out to get into her pants, that 30 year old would sure have my stamp of approval!
I'm not saying that it's the case here (and I'm not dissing btown's friend, he sounds like an upstanding guy), but numbers don't always tell the full story. because now you've changed the scenario so that she's not a legal adult.
As a friend, you can be there to offer support when things fall apart, but beyond that it's up to them. She had a great guy in front of her and she wants to throw that away.
my boy and her were talking for about 6 months, on the 2nd month she told him he loved her and he didnt respond back because he was scared because he's been hurt before.
