Most of the guys I talked to and started flirting with would either lie to me and say they wanted something “genuine” so they could get in my pants, or flat out tell me “before anything starts, I just wanted to say I don’t want to be in a relationship.
It’s not you, it’s just me.” It made me feel absolutely horrible!
It doesn't matter if they are boys or girls, there is a big difference.
In high school, one grade level is about all I would be comfortable with.
I am curious if you have your own high school aged kids?
As a former high school teacher and a parent of 3 high school aged kids I don't see what you see.

That is why parents need to judge their own child's situation and not set blanket rules for their child.My son is in HS and there are plenty of 17 year old seniors dating 15 year old sophmores.In fact when he was a freshman he complained that the girls wouldn't talk to the freshman boys because they all wanted to date the older boys. I think it would be strange for an 18 year old to want to date a 30 year old, but I don't think it's wrong, just strange.I would have a problem only if she started dating someone out of college while she was still in high school. As a high school teacher I can say that boys are very much less mature on average than girls.At this point, I don't think she would have much in common with someone far removed from high school. Not all boys are less mature and some girls are very immature, but more times than not boys are very much less mature than girls.
I highly don’t understand the college guy mentality. It just shows how technology is destroying people as well.
