20 year old dating 16 wrong
Imagine if your little bro or sis was getting hit on by their teacher. If you’re 28 and dating a 22 year old, there is way less of a huge maturity difference.
If you’re 15 and dating someone who is 25, however, you’re also at very different stages of life.
Statutory rape laws are generally far more concerned with the latter.
They protect kids and teenagers from manipulative predators who can easily manipulate their way into a younger person’s heart and bedroom. what if I’m 16-years-old and my boyfriend just turned 18-years-old? Now, here’s where things get a little funky and there’s a name for this funkiness: Romeo and Juliet laws. Trust, it’s really not as over the top and fatal as it sounds.
When I was 15 those were my biggest worries, on top of whether or not my crush noticed me and dealing with my parents. Um, I’m worried about paying rent, getting to work on time, and…still wondering if my crush notices me but still, the point is that life is just different.
It’s still fun and exciting, but you’re looking at life through a very different perspective.
Most 15 year olds are still in high school and aren’t even allowed to drive yet, let alone get served at a bar like their 23-year-old boyfriend.
As someone who is 23 right now, the idea of dating someone who is 15-years-old makes my head spin.
