I've been on this site awhile and have noticed that with some users. I feel with some users it's a lack of patience, for some it's a prude factor (don't want to advise teens about sexual topics out of legal/reputation fear or believing they shouldn't be involved in sex anyways).
Teens need the most help! So my advice is always welcome.
I don't really mind if they have questions although I'm careful about what I say, I wouldn't talk the same way to someone younger than I would to people over 18. It's not that I want to 'talk down' to those younger, I mean when I was about 10 years old I'd probably heard the limit of 'bad' things possible. But I know my parents wouldn't appreciate people telling their kids graphic details or using 'swear' words.
No, because people over 18 also ask dumbass questions like Anon said. Likewise, under 18 year olds also ask good questions.
I never notice the age
I don't scoff or roll my eyes at the pre-18 users for nothing. But more often than not, they post questions that are either really retarded or really immature.
And when I say immature, I don't (just) mean that they're lame or lack any seriousness, but also that whole idea that the things important to a high schooler pretty much define their lives. It's hard to explain without examples, and I don't have any off the top of my head. But the things a young person finds to be life altering just makes me shake my head at times. I realize that when you have nothing else but school and friends, that those things are a big part of your life. But their inexperience and ignorance at things makes me appreciate the fact that I'm beyond that part of my life.
Not saying they're useless people. But when you almost literally have nothing expected of you from the world and don't expect much from yourself, it just makes me glad I'm no longer in that "worthless existence" phase of life, ya know?
Thats because you guys usually ask questions like "He grabbed my boobs and slapped my ass in the hallway, do you think he likes me?" Or "Help I love my girlfriend that I met 2 weeks ago but I cheated on her with Mrs. Bigtits after getting drunk off of one beer. What to do?"
