behavioral economics dating - Age difference in teen dating
Talk to your teen about how real life dates don't mimic what might be seen in the movies.
Instead, first dates may be awkward, but they can also be a lot of fun.
Based on the formula, a 21-year-old could date someone as young as 17, an 18-year-old could be with a 16-year old, and a 16-year-old with a 15-year-old.
Having a partner who is much older or younger has become somewhat trendy in today’s celebrity-obsessed culture, perhaps even more so among young adults.
There is no way around it; your teenager is going to want to date.
