    Freshman dating a Senior

    Advertisements
    I am curious what you all think about this. I found out recently that my youngest son's best friend who, quite honestly I love, I call him my son from another mother(lol), Is going to prom with a senior. He is 15 and she is 18. Yeah I know. So weird. But knowing this kid, there is nothing "going on". They are just "friends". But he told me recently that they are actually going out, but because she's 18, it's hush hush.

    I firmly believe that they are not sexually involved and are just dating. And obviously his parents are ok with it or it wouldn't be happening. Met his mom numerous times.


    My husband was a freshman when he went to prom with a Junior way back when. And nobody blinked. So, do you think there is a double standard between boys and girls?

    If a Freshman girl(15) went to prom with a senior, would it bother you?

    I don't really see this as a big deal, but maybe I'm biased because I dated a senior when I was a 14 year old freshman. When I was a senior a LOT of the guys had freshman girlfriends. It was kind of the cool thing to do.

    I think it probably depends on the individuals, but I remember being those ages. When I was a freshman, I would've gotten my ass beat if I tried to date a senior lol. But I was also pretty sheltered, and pretty immature for my age. I had no business dating anybody, no matter what grade they were in. And by the time I was 18, freshmen seemed like babies and I wouldn't have been interested.

    I do think there is a double standard where people find it more acceptable for the man in the relationship to be the older one, especially if there's a bigger age gap. But it seems across the board not just with teens.

    Personally I don't think it's a big deal though.

    Does it bother you that she would be charged if they got reported or got caught for this?

    I was dating a senior when I was a freshman. It wasn't at all weird and our parents were all totally fine with it

    I dated a senior too, as a freshman.

    My son is a freshman. If he wanted to date a senior, that's fine as long as we know her. I will not have a double standard like that for our kids.

    Would she still be charged with something just for dating? Even if there was nothing sexual going on? That would definitely bother me.
