Question to ask before dating a girl
"Just because a girl looks like she's 16 when she's only 11, it doesn't mean that psychologically or emotionally she's ready to date older boys...they are so much more skilled at this dating game than she would be, and they can manipulate her and hurt her," says Laura Choate, Ed D, a licensed professional counselor, associate professor of counselor education at Louisiana State University, and author of the book, Girls' and Women's Wellness: Contemporary Counseling Issues and Interventions.not because you're the only person in your group who doesn't have a special someone," Gowen says. Also get your friends' input about whether the person is worth your time.One very important question you need to ask yourself is whether this person is safe for you to date.In fact, Gowen did a study of girls who had older boyfriends, and she found that freshmen girls who dated junior or senior boys were more likely to go further, and to be forced into doing things they didn't want to do.
See if you can work out a deal where you ease into dating gradually.
Girls who've set their sights on older guys, beware.
