  • Yes, but not so much in a romantic/sexual sense (that also happened once but it wasn't too bad). In my case, I was child-zoned really badly by my school... or actually, by society.
    When I was 18, I lived in the US for one year as an exchange student. While there were many things I loved, there was one thing I absolutely hated (and I still believe it's a very bad aspect of US culture): I was constantly treated like a child. This was especially the case for my time at school. I come from Switzerland and I was used to being treated like a young adult. In high schools here, students and teachers have a rather different relationship. Students have much more responsibilities and school is generally tougher. But on the bright side, we also get treated more like adults. The whole thing works more like college in America. It's your responsibility to do your homework regularly, study for exams or go to your classes. Nobody will be there to play your school-mommy and make sure everything gets done. If you fuck up, it's your problem and teachers don't really care. But this also gives you a lot of freedom. So when I came to America and went to high school there, I was shocked how students were babied all the time. I couldn't even go to the bathroom without asking my teacher and getting a hall pass (at age 18!). That felt really humiliating. I really wonder how American kids go through this for their whole high school time. Also, one time I wanted to go out during lunch break and buy my lunch from a nearby store. That's what I did a lot with my friends in Switzerland. However, a teacher yelled at me and told me that we're not allowed to leave the school during lunch break. So it was basically like a prison. The only reason was apparently that I might lie to him and just go home. I thought that was really stupid. Another example would be that they blocked the internet on the school computers in the library so we could only access certain websites.
    As I said, there's lots of things I love about American culture but I think this is something really sad... I feel bad for American teenagers. You constantly get treated as though you were 10 years old or as though you were a complete idiot or something like that. There's so much over-protectiveness and a lack of trust. Cuz American kids and teenagers are not stupid and if teachers and parents would only give them more freedom, they would see them flourish and actually behave more mature. So this is how I felt child-zoned ;-).

    • Americans are much more likely than Europeans to wield the legal system as an offensive weapon. Hence the starker differences.

  • I fucked grown up guys even when I was 15, but I didn't look like 15.
    When I say "grown up" I mean the oldest ones are in their mid 20s.

  • Childzoned? You mean rejected because you are under age? I don't think I have, no. But then again, I'm not sure I've reached out to an older woman for a relationship when I was younger - at least I don't currently recall. That doesn't mean I didn't want one, because I probably did. However, I have been rejected for being too young for a person - not necessarily underage, though. In fact, I was well above age.

  • Fuck someone your own age, you'll get dudes arrested.

    Scratch that, you're in Mexico, you've been legal for 4 years now. :D

    Still, some guys just won't fuck an under 18 for moral reasons, you're just gonna have to wait.

  • Yes, and if you liked me I would do the same to you too since I am not going towards prison for risking it being with you. Good luck though with your relationships anyway.

  • I've childzoned a lot of younger guys in my high school days "16 year old brother of my friend, lol, I'm a senior, childzoned!"

    In my life, I've talked to very few older guys, and pretty much all of them treated me like a daughter (which is respectful, and I didn't complain)

    I've also been mom-zoned! @OrdinaryGentleman
