It's true that nice boys exist, and that not all older boys are out to bed the younger girls.

I loved Janet’s comment about “Nice boys exist.”

As the above posts indicate, it’s a complex question with many different answers. Some 15 year old girls have more maturity than some boys 18.

I have 2 daughters, and we also did not allow one on one dating until our daughters were 16, and at that point, we only allowed a 2 year age difference.

Instead of telling her NO straight forward, it would be better to take her in belief. Discuss the issue with her. Tell her your opinion. I think combined discussion will be of great help.

I agree that it depends.

I too think it is a big "depends".
