18 yr old dating 24 yr old
I ran away to live with him at one point of histronics.He was a nasty bullying twat who, in retrospect had narcissistic tendancies. he may well put less pressure on her than a hormonal 16 yr old.Tbh though age was never an issue for us, and you can't possibly predict the outcome just based on age - it depends what this guy is like.I would be concerned As others have said he should be at a totally different place than a 15 yr old girl who hasn't even done her gcse's never mind worked and lived as an may look and act 17 but he isn't. Do you know any other 24 year olds that you could use as an example of 'normal' iyswim?I think I would only get very worried if he was showing signs of controlling her.
If he's very immature for his age and she is quite mature, there's probably not a huge amount of difference in their emotional maturity.Hi, I have found out today that my 15 year old daughters boyfriend is 24!! Hope I've not made it worse, just didn't want your post to go unanswered. They married.16 years later, and two more children later, they're still together. You should probably disconnext the ' OMG he's 24' thing from the 'they're going to have sex' thing. Previously I have spoken to her about sex, only doing it when she is ready so long as it's over the age of 16, safe sex etc. On the other hand I don't want to force it 'underground'. With that age difference at that age, the relationship is likely imo, to be too unequal. Older men pick girls like that because women their own age are too clever for them/see straight through them. My first cousin fell pregnant at 16 to her 21-year-old boyfriend. No matter how great your 15 yr old daughter is, wouldn't it be better, at 24, to have a girlfriend who was old enough to go to the pub?I would sit down and say that to your dd, and say he is only interested in gping out with a girl 9 years younger than him because women his own age would make mincemeat ofhim. To be honest, the sex issue would not be what would worry me, rather the unsettling control reak this man may be.How much freedom do you give your DD - is she allowed to come and go as she pleases, or do you know where she is at all times? Because despite some people having an older boyfriend and it all being hunky dory, there are plenty of predatory men out there who are insecure freaks of nature, who prey on young girls and try and dominate them.
