Many parents of teenage girls face a tough problem.
Should you allow your daughter to date an older boy?
In the calculus of relationships, people figure out their own worth, and then effectively try to engage with someone of equivalent or better value.
This works quite well for the procreation of the species.
But we were not necessarily built for relationships that last forever. So often these days men find themselves single again in their late 30s or early 40s.
They come to me and share their pain and concerns that they have to start dating again. It is much easier for a man in his 40s to find desirable dating partners of the female persuasion. You need only look at the numbers to figure out why.
