so i just found out that my friend janine* has been dating this man named chris* for about three months now. this wouldn't be so disturbing if she weren't 14 and he weren't 19.
i mean, that's a really big difference when you think about how much a person matures within those years.
she also, apparently, just broke up with him.
i find this to be a relief, but she's upset about it.
so my questions are-
does anyone else find the issues with this age gap?
how much older is TOO old?
why do you see the risk in it?
i'd love to hear your opinions.
*names have been changed.
-on a side note, two more of my 14 year old freshman friends have 19 year old boyfriends that have already graduated. why do i hang out with such naieve people? honestly...
