real life. long story short he happened to be 23, my sisters best friend who was like a brother to me. stuff went down and since then the same age range as come to be attracted to me
Well, part of it could be that you are open to the advances of people of that age. Young and single guys are always on the lookout for female attention. Most guys in their 20's would not consider trying to hit on a girl who was under 18, they have more respect and more self respect. However, some guys are less discerning. It is often because they can't connect with, or impress, girls of their own age. They find it easier to target younger and more impressionable girls. Chances are that they would never admit to their friends that they are flirting with, or seeing, a girl who is under 18. They know how it would look to everyone else.You're 17 now so you're closer to becoming an adult and can make your own choices. Older guys will try it on, that can't be avoided. It is you who ultimately decides who you are willing to engage with.
so you're saying when im 18 I should be more are of the people im in contact with? im 18 in June and you say that they're just guys wanting someone somewhat younger?
My advice would be to try and date within your own age range. There might be the occasional exception but when that occurs you should always question the motivation of the older party. If you are getting on exceptionally well with a guys 10yrs older than you, for example, then is it that you are very mature for your age or is it actually that this person is very immature for his age. That's what you need to consider. You also need to consider your respective places in life. You will be wanting to experience all kinds of new things. The older male will likely be a lot more settled in life than you are. Would you really have common goals and ambitions?
