Teenage dating older boy

That, by the way, is a comparison I made at the time, which is so gross to me now.

We have told our daughter that we don’t want her to date.

We will not allow her to have a boyfriend until she is 16.

I thought I was totally prepared to deal with the daily realities of having a boyfriend who was older than me by a decade-plus, which turned out to be less than correct.

Before I get into the real nitty gritty, though, a few caveats.

But if you’re looking to get into one of these situations, I’m guessing you don’t need to be told about the alluring/fun parts, and if you’re writing to us about it, it’s clear that you are weighing your decision carefully, and not being passively swept away or coerced.
