Hello. I mostly use this site as a reference for my work with youth but occasionally find an article that I find personally intriguing (spelling is for people with spellcheck) and this is one of those. As the male member in a relationship where my female partner is 18 and I am 21 I was enthralled by this article. I have only dated older girls during my life tell now and choose to see this article as a warning TO a caring older boyfriend of things to be careful of doing. I would like to think that I am a good boyfriend to my girlfriend and we have a very happy relationship. Does the age gap impact lessen as the total age of both parties increases? Good article.
