Secrets to dating an older man
The thing is, teenager girls often don’t realize just how unequal the relationship with an older man usually is.Usually the older man has more power simply from the fact that he is older, and they usually have more money and resources than the teenager or her friends.School and friends may start seeming childish in comparison to her boyfriend’s problems.
I told her when she initially talked about him pursuing her, his reason was that there aren’t any girls 21 and up that were “cool”, that there just wasn’t something right about a man who should be on the verge of finishing college, dating someone who’s in high school.
Another reason includes greater financial and physical independence, which for a young teenage girl looking for independence, an escape from her family or surroundings, is very appealing.
Also, older men are considered more mature and experienced in all aspects of life which is attractive to a young girl, especially one looking to escape her life.
If they were good, she was happy, going to class, doing good.
If he was ignoring her, she was depressed, missing class, consumed with anxiety.
