I know you are probably saying, “What is wrong with this?
Her mother does not seem to mind my being with her daughter.” This, however, is where the danger lies.
Dear Ashley, Today, I’m going to take a controversial stance. Does the pretty girl have the same issues as the fat girl? It was as if her magical glow rubbed off on me in some way when she walked into a room. I wouldn’t want to have to make pillow talk, or cook her breakfast, or call her the following day.
Young men, there’s a real danger out there you need to be aware of that can destroy your lives forever.That danger is young girls wanting to be popular by dating older guys.My friends all have boyfriends, and I’m really looking to settle down. By the way, it never gets farther than kissing with me. Men leap to attention and whisper to each other before approaching. As a result, you become a lifelong target—a trophy for men to bag.I realize that if they don’t stick around because I won’t have sex with them, then at least I know. It seems that attractive girls only get guys that want to sleep with them. Yes, the pretty girl has more dates than she needs and probably has a waiting list a mile long. Well, if you’re a pretty girl or you know a pretty girl, you know exactly what’s wrong. And make no mistake about it, most men want to bag you. I’m as sensitive a guy as you’re going to find in terms of how I communicate with women, but I can still remember the rush of dating a Perfect 10.Without knowing more, it’s hard to tell, though I think Evan is right on.
Dear Editor: I am writing this because I am tired of seeing young men’s lives destroyed.
It does not matter that you have not done anything like this in the past or that you are known to most people as a great young man who is a hard worker and loves his family.
It does not matter that you have many friends you have helped and have been of service to.
The newspaper wanting a front-page story will run your picture and write about how you took advantage of this innocent little girl.
Strangers will come up to you on the street and threaten you. Law enforcement will discourage them from doing this but will do little to help you.
It’s that your layers of protection may be having an unintended side effect—putting off otherwise well-meaning men who don’t want to feel like they’re in seventh grade all over again.
