20 year old guy dating 16 year old country gentlemen dating site
I know its only 8 years difference but it's the difference between him being at an age where he must be thinking about starting a family, marriage, etc and her starting out in life. Do I let them get on with it or should I try to explain my above concerns at the risk of pushing them together? Based on the logic, it shows that "Reductio ad absurdum." I was 19 and ran off with a 27 year old woman from America. My mother disowned me and we didn't speak for a year. I was reckless and foolish and as an adult 20 years later I can easily recognize this.
@ Fattie, I am not a native speaker, but isn't that contradictory to OP: "he must be thinking about starting a family, marriage, etc and her starting out in life." Well -- I feel that it totally contradicts the earlier "I can only think he's with her for one reason! My relationship with my wife lasted 16 years and produced 3 lovely children. However, as MY children reach their teenage years I of course see everything from the perspective as a parent.
I just think that, at their ages, they cannot possibly have anything in common.
He owns his own successful business although he still lives with parents.
" or would you think "one can't control where the heart will lead"? My husband's second wife was 17 years younger than him. I'm honestly not sure what motivates a 19 year old girl to go after a guy twice her age (it's definitely not money with this kid as judging by her car and clothes she's from a very well-to-do family). Or what I tell my kids- you worry about YOURself, and let others worry about THEMselves. Wht he is doing is very taboo among the upper echelon of college profs. It is not advisable to date students at your institution, and though I have personal objections to the age difference, in this situation it is more of a professional indecency. I'm honestly not sure what motivates a 19 year old girl to go after a guy twice her age (it's definitely not money with this kid as judging by her car and clothes she's from a very well-to-do family). Makes me wonder if this girl knows what she is doing, but hey! ;) In conclusion, this is none of our business, so let's just give a little shudder and forget about it.
she's certainly cute and seems really nice, but I can't get over the age difference.
I'm not going to say anything to him or her about it because it's none of my business, but it majorly bothers me (two levels: he's still a professor and she's still a student even if the college doesn't have a dating ban [unless students are in the professor's class] and the fact that she's by some definitions a minor and he's closing in on middle age]).
Though not conpletely unheard of, it does happen, but it is not a norm by any means. And it is non-of your business, but you'll probably be called upon to pick up the pieces when it falls apart. This is similar to my sister's situation and I'm pretty worried about it.
She's 19 and apparently not just seeing, but sleeping with a 35 year old Scottish man that none of her family has ever met or knows anything about.
There was safety in the shadows, but also a kind of darkness. " my friend whispered as we walked back to the car with the guys a few steps ahead."It just felt strange," I told her. Just like that, you lose your footing, and you're in over your head. He noticed my sudden distance and pouted, unsettling to see in an adult.
