He told her that he cant do it to you especially when he did it before, and she never dated before.It is not just numbers, my 21 year old friend has a good head on his shoulders and has more to offer.
I think the age difference between 18 and 30 years old is completey wrong... She fell in love with the 21 year old, and he loves her but she doesnt want to give it a chance to let it work, instead she has this infatuation over this 30 year old guy who she calls her soul mate.
As a friend, you can be there to offer support when things fall apart, but beyond that it's up to them. She had a great guy in front of her and she wants to throw that away.
my boy and her were talking for about 6 months, on the 2nd month she told him he loved her and he didnt respond back because he was scared because he's been hurt before.
if it was a situation where my 18 year old daughter had to choose between a respectful, responsible, and well meaning 30 year old, versus a guy her own age who had no job, no responsibility, and was just out to get into her pants, that 30 year old would sure have my stamp of approval!
I'm not saying that it's the case here (and I'm not dissing btown's friend, he sounds like an upstanding guy), but numbers don't always tell the full story. because now you've changed the scenario so that she's not a legal adult.
