As a young woman in my early ’20s I can tell you that there are dudes my age (sadly) who aren’t mature whatsoever and can’t date a woman their age to save their life.
So these dudes find it easier to attract the attention of teen girls who might give them the time of day instead. No matter how old you are, you can be susceptible of manipulation, and dudes like that are at manipulating girls into thinking that they’re cool and interesting when they really aren’t all that cool and interesting.

But even at 18, I feel like it's wierd that they'd date someone in their 20s. Well, it depends...they are both seniors in HS and one is 17 and one is 18, I would think that is pretty normal....
Like, cool, this dude was old enough to see The Strokes in concert 10 years ago when they actually had good albums out.
I don't see anything weird about a 2 year age difference whether the people are 32/30 or 20/18. Why would it be weird for an 18 year old and 20 year old to date?
Once in college, they will be meeting people who are older/younger but still are in their "peer group" - much more so than in HS where everything is more more "stratified" when it comes to social groups....
Oh, and I would have no different rules for boys than for girls....I am saying this from the perspective of a parent of one of each.... I'm really uncomfortable with kids under 18 dating anyone over 18, besides the fact it's illegal where I live!
I have no interest in sitting here and saying that your heart palpitations for an older guy you might be dating aren’t real. But when we’re talking about a relationship between a teenager and an adult who is significantly older–yeah, not just some 16-year-old dating an 18-year-old–there is often something weirdly fraudulent about it.
Hear me out: When you’re a teen girl dating an adult, what does your relationship look like? Are you showing off your new boyfriend to your friends? Are you kind of sort of gushing about how great they are to your nosy mom?
The issue: Amber Rose was side-eyeing the fact that rapper Tyga, 25-years-old, is allegedly dating Khloe’s 17-year-old sister Kylie Jenner.
