Tell parents dating older man
At the time I would have been furious had they tried to stop me. What they couldn’t have known was that for as mature and adventurous as I thought I was, no amount of growth or maturity can escape the eclipsing influence of an older man.Girls who grow up in this kind of relationship may never know who they might have been had they been left alone, or with a peer.
However, the hardest people to convince would be the girls themselves. But I was also most unlike what we assume that girl to be.
In my case, my boyfriend certainly had no idea about me, who I was, and how much he molded my personality.
For women like me, the relationship was the factor that defined a superior sense of maturity.
All of this to cater to an emotionally immature, headstrong, confused young man.
I was a good kid who made poor choices—at the time they were exciting and forward-thinking choices.
