Though I think it would be extremely rare for a relationship like this to last, I am not opposed to it, provided that the older partner treats the younger partner with respect.Unfortunately, this often doesn't happen - hence the stigma associated with this dating scenario.My husband who is her step-father thinks I am out of my mind to allow her to go anywhere with him. B :)I personally would not let her hang out with just her boyfriend. At this age I think a group of friends hanging out is a much better idea.

I hate to say no to her when she is acting so appropriately otherwise. I have feeling this is more of a male/female battle! I cannot express how it feels to know that so many wonderful mothers took the time to write back. I am keeping the "talks" going and she is holding up her end by continuing to do well in school (an A on her last honors history test!! I spend enough time with her to be able to keep tabs on her social life. She will have many many years of dating what's the rush.

Persoanlly my kids are not allowed to date until they are 16 and then it has to be at least a double date or more people until they are 18.

Yes its a double standard, but its a good one, girls have WAY more to lose if they get into something that turns into a sexual situation.

Girls tend to be attracted to the "cool, older guy" around that age.

Plus, it's not exactly great for a long term relationship. In 16 years, he'll be some old guy.thats not true at all.

Pedophilia is associatied with all girls and boys who are minors, girls and boys who are to young to give legal consent and usually thats the age of 18 although in some states its 17[QUOTE="domatron23"] Nope that's pretty wrong in my books.

I have let her go to the mall on a weekend afternoon with him and he has been over the house 1 time.

I have talked to her about sex and feelings and everything in between. Is it wrong to let her hang out with him at the mall, see a movie or just have him come over for a few hours (supervised)? He does not have a license and gets rides from parents. I always worry when an older boy seeks out a younger girl.

A friend of mine who is 15 is dating a 22 year old guy.
