Maybe it’s gotten to the point where you can’t walk across campus without seeing a past hook-up buddy, boyfriend or one of their current girlfriends.
It's inevitable for them to end when the senior goes to college. Once a boy reaches 17 or 18 (depending on the state) he is a target of all sorts of crazy accusations. But that's no reason to never have the relationship in the first place. Yes it is my opinion that a senior/sophomore relationship is inappropriate..as bad as a senior/freshman, but still not something I approve of entirely. For that reason I would prefer that my sons date girls who are close to their age. I know people who have had such a relationship, and yea it's none of my business I suppose, but that's how I feel. I don't think there is anything inherently wrong with a senior dating a freshman but since so many parents of girls seem so willing (even eager) to make normal teen boys into sexual predators it would make me uncomfortable for me if my son dated a freshman as a senior. What you're essentially saying is it's inappropriate for someone to date someone a year and 2 months younger.Because that was the age gap between me and the older sophomores when I was a senior. The thing that concerns me as a parent is that parents of girls (and the girls themselve) can accuse the older boyfriend of all sorts of things (short of sex) that can cause a teen to be charged with a sex crime.
