Freshman in college dating senior in college
As a general rule, I think that age gap is too much at that particular age.
Yes, you can argue that maybe the senior is young and the freshman is old, but then the opposite could be true... In any case, for argument's sake, we'll say 3 years.
The only time she balked was when a senior asked her to Sr Ball when she was a freshman.
Although she befriended many older boys, who were probably socially slow and unaccepted by females their own age, she didn't think she could handle being around senior girls yet. She was a bit older for her grade and I was on the young side (didn't turn 18 till after graduating high school).
Its as simple as that plus the behaviour IS inconsistant with the will, or trueness to forever love. People are wimps esp the parents who don't STAND UP for their daughter.
What do u think a baloney head 18 yr old thinks, when theres no authority behind the girl...
She started dating a boy the day she graduated from middle school.
We had a rule that she couldn't date more than a grade up, then she started dating a home schooled boy and that rule didn't make any sense.
And to be honest, in those relationships with older boys she held all the power.
The issue isn't the physical age gap but the mental age gap. Generally, there are vast differences in the mental states of people at those ages.
A high school freshman is generally way different from a high school senior. The mental gap between a fifteen and seventeen-year-old is vastly different than that of a twenty-two and twenty-four-year-old.
In some May/December relationships (whether it be with teens or full fledged adults) that difference in experience becomes a big issue. Of course there are some freshmen boys who are having sex.
The younger person really needs an equal in order to grow into their fullest version of themselves, a peer who is going through the same things where they can make mistakes side by side. The older person has already made those mistakes and is more likely to try to impart wisdom and guide or assist (with no harmful intent) the younger person's choices rather than be a true peer and equal. However as you go through the grades, the percentage of "experienced" people is going to rise.
