Undressed: What’s the Deal With the Age Gap in Relationships?
My year-old daughter is in a relationship with a year-old man. She denies it, but I'm sure she is lying. Should I speak to the man?.

Let me put it this way, 19 goes into 50 a hell of a lot more than 50 goes into And, yes, I know some younger men date older women. Kyle Jones, a year- old Pittsburgh guy, was in the news for having a relationship with.
Your child is now an adult and any jot of juristic control that you once had over her comings and goings and general choices in life is no longer in effect. That said, she has chosen to remain under your roof and if your intention is to force her to end the affair, then I suppose that is your one trump card.

Brigitte Trogneux met Emmanuel Macron when he was 15 and she was his year-old drama teacher, already married with three kids. Not my ideal meet cute, but whatever — and it made me wonder: Men tend to message women significantly younger than they are. When women start conversations, they tend to message men closer to their own age.

Women, on the other hand, message and respond most often to men about their own age. He knows he's gonna pay on the first date.
