At me a similar situation. Is ready to help.
My cousin is 21, going on 22 in August. He is going out with a girl that just turned 16 in January! I keep telling him it's wrong but he says age is just a number and no age difference will come between him and his true love. Well, she's at the legal age For, you know It's probably alright. Not necessarily true. Most states in the US say you must be atleast 18 years old to have sex without the consent of parents.
How can he be so selfish when she has her teenage years to live he's already had his. She will want to go to concerts, pictures etc We are so frightened that Jess is about to throw it all away on someone she only knew for a weekend! Please help. Momof1 8. Ok I'm sorry I could not even read your whole post because it just bothered me too much, try to put a stop to this, 22 is such a different level of maturity from a 16 year old, often older people date a younger person to try to control and manipulate them into doing what they shouldn't be doing, do whatever you have to to keep her away from him, is this illegal in your area, could you get a restraining order?
MomoJA 3. Tough one. On the one hand, if you try to separate her from him, chances are she will rebel and feel alienated from you and tied to him.
On the other hand, if you don't separate her from him, she could fall into his way of life and, I'm sorry, a 22yo man who pursues a 16yo girl most likely has some loser tendencies!
I guess the only thing you can do is express your concerns. Let her know she can do better, that she has lots of time for those things and that you've always been so proud of how she has been determined and known what she wanted and you hope she doesn't lose sight of that.
BUT that no matter what she decides, you will be supportive and you hope she understands the possible consequences and protects herself against them, and that she can always come to you for help. As for contraception, I'd almost rather not put my 16yo on it. With it, she is more likely to have unprotected sex. Pregnancy is the only thing a contraceptive pill or injection can protect her from and that's the least of the negative outcomes having sex can result in as far as I'm concerned.
Hi there Thanks for you replies, unfortunately in the UK once you're 16 sex is legal and there is nothing we can do. Her virginity is her's to do with as she wishes. We thought we had bought her up right, always being very open and frank, never afraid to answer a question no matter how indepth it was She knows that they MUST wear a condom should they have sex, and that the injection is there to prevent any pregnancy, however the STI's are more of a worry as he has had more partners whereas she has had none.
I've told her of my own experiences in the past, I was 18 and had a 23 year old boyfriend who was violent, controlling and took drugs and explained how awful it was for everyone involved, however it seems that the "lights are on but no one's home". She just doesn't seem to be taking it in.
IADad 4, 1. I'm not sure what that knowledge does to help the situation, but it reinforces the notion that a 16 yo shouldn't be falling in love for a lifetime BUT, as you 've already observed you can't talk he into anything.
22 and 16 year old dating
I'm thinking the best you can do is help her to focus on her goals, invest yourself in helping her achieve them and show her little by little how this guy isn't part of the plan to get her where she really wants to be. This decision is probably going to have to come from her.
The best you can do is help her see it. TabascoNatalie 1, I'm sorry, a 22yo man who pursues a 16yo girl most likely has some loser tendencies!
Yes, there may be slightly more mature children than others, but just by life experience alone, the man in this relationship is even more "mature. I seriously don't think it ever crossed my mind, especially when there were a million 22 year old girls all around who had their own cars and apartments.
I think the best thing to do in this situation is not to lecture her constantly or try to frighten her about sex or anything like that. This topic is locked from further discussion.
What would you do if your year-old daughter was dating a man that's 20 and he lied and said that he was 17? Would you, as a parent, allow your 18 year old daughter to date a 28 year old man? Would you frown at your year-old daughter dating a year-old guy?.
