Would You Let Your Daughter Date a Senior?

I have a friend who is in the 8th grade and her family knows a guy that they are really close to. So about a week ago I found out that he was a senior and she was dating a senior. So, I talked to her and everything and I asked why in the hell is she dating a senior when he can go to jail for that? And She said, " My family knows him really well, I helped out with a lot of problems and stressful situations. I deserve this." I said, "But do you not understand that he's a 12th grader and once you make to high school, he'll be leaving out for college." She said, " Yeah and hopefully hen doesn't break up with me." So I really can't do much about this because her parents are letting him date her but I think it's wrong because even if I did help him out with stressful situations and I felt like I deserved that type of love from a family friend, my mom would go upside my head with a wooden spoon because I know better than that. I think her parents should step up a little more. And she thinks it's cool.

  • It doesn't matter what anyone else would do. Her parents are allowing it, she will probably get hurt when he leaves (as you anticipate,) and she will not listen to anyone else in the meanwhile, so. . . be waiting on the sidelines ready to console her when the inevitable happens.

  • My daughters weren't allowed to date period until they were in the eleventh grade - and even though only for a homecoming dance or the prom.

  • A good relationship, is based off a fundamental framework of shared belief's, the greater your beliefs, the better the relationship.

    continue an effort into finding people who share the way you see the world, and who would want to share the world with you.

    Anything else is futile waste of effort, in the context of general relationship's, especially romantic one's.

  • If he wasn't 18, I'd let her do it as a lesson in tough love. I would let her learn the hard way that they are in two completely different places in life. Of course I would be extremely vigilant though. The guy dating her would fear me.

  • No. Teens should really only date within one year of their age. I might be willing to make a mental exception for an 18 year old and a 16 year old or a 19 year old and a 17 year old.

    • If she was super horny and wet , gave bjs like it was the last one on earth then hell yeah I would.
      Oh and she was cute with this so innocent look then hell yea !
      Behind closed doors she couldn't get enough , then yup I would.
      Even if we had to be secretive and had to sneak around and breed like rabbits.

  • I'd be pissed and probably murder the little punk if he hurt her, but yes, if she's 16+ I'm not going to police her dating choices if she's capable of making choices on her own. I mean, would this be a problem if it was a son? The answer is no because we assume boys know what they're getting into, and even encourage it (short of pregnancy) because playing the field is seen as a positive in guys. I wouldn't want to have any double standards, so if I didn't let my daughter date, I wouldn't let my son either, and if I let my son make his own choices, I'd let my daughter do the same.

  • No, she's still a kid while he's probably already 18 (an adult). He can also get in trouble for dating a minor.
    I would be wondering why can't he date girls his age.

    • well i have a friend that was in an aragment like this. the parents were really good friends and their kids dated though he was older. i think they started dating when he was 20 and she was 16 but they eventually got married so i dont see this as a big deal when the families are involved. its not like this is some random guy

    • @dudeman but he's 18 no telling what he wants for her

  • hell no. That is a sin really.

  • No, personally that's too much of an age gap and maturity. I don't know any senior person that has the same mindset as a 13-14 year old

  • At that age, its a big difference. Honestly my dad would be PISSED at that guy because high school seniors who have no problem hanging out with or dating middle schoolers are pedophiles. But she is young and stupid in love. Just don't let her do anything stupid.

  • Hell no! A girl that age is not even close to being ready to date a guy that age. And there's a 99% chance he's only interested in one thing.

  • That age difference isn't terrible, once you're both adults. Or once the younger one is at least a Junior or Senior in highschool. I wouldn't allow dating until they were to start highschool anyway.

  • A girl in 8th grade shouldn't be with an adult, in my opinion. Though it isn't your day nor is there anything you can do in this situation.
