Men his age have more expierence and may want to push your boundaries, ect. For all my fears at the start, he has proven to be an honorable man who has encouraged her to become the awesome woman that she now is. The desire to protect young women from abusive or predatory sexual relationships is a noble sentiment, and one that no reasonable person could disparage.
My ex and i havent been together for almost two years i left to better myself and when i decided to come back he moved on was in that relationship the time i left. Young teenage girls who contract sexually transmitted diseases often get them from older boyfriends. When a relation is looked down upon you might only see the bad. Again, the motivation behind this legislation is to protect young people from abuse. I know I am not a counselor, but I do hope to provide her with an advantage of learning from my own experience and helping her in a way that I could not help my own daughter.
I agree with you that the age difference is huge and I hate to see that the relationship formed before she was even 18. You mention They also do not have the social, financial and or mental skills to date older women. An older man challenges them intellectually. Studies show that men view the ideal age of beauty of a woman to be around 22-19 depending on the study. She will learn lessons that are important, things that she may never experience with an older man. That being said once I became an adult 18 I had no real desire nor attraction to underaged girls. It went reasonably well until she grew up.
While admitting that the relationship between our 69-year-old and 27-year-old was 'a bit more strange than usual couples,' Julie, 34, said she didn't really care.

Some men are like wine - they get better with age. He came back the next season, married, and I was determined to stay away. Even in the early 2000s, we came of age believing that teenage boys were the randy ones.
I hate when I am working with a teenage girl and she tells me she is dating an older man, usually because I know that this relationship, while to her may be idyllic and dreamy, is more often a disaster waiting to happen on so many levels. At that time she was 19 and a freshman in college. I know I am the cause of her pain but I also know I am doing what is right! This search for belonging, often sends teenage girls into unhealthy relationships that further damage their self-esteem and often expose them to other damaging factors such as unprotected sex, drugs, alcohol and violence.

Others turn to drugs and alcohol which most often they had been introduced to by the older guy. I find it very hard as a parent why a grown man who is 12 years younger than me ; why he would try to encourage my daughter to reach out to me and have a relationship with me.
