Young teenage girls who contract sexually transmitted diseases often get them from older boyfriends.

Older men usually have had more sexual experience that often include risky sexual behaviors.

Sofia began singing aged five, took up the piano just two years later and occasionally performed at her father’s live shows.

By her teens she was planning to pursue a career in the music industry.

I hate when I am working with a teenage girl and she tells me she is dating an older man, usually because I know that this relationship, while to her may be idyllic and dreamy, is more often a disaster waiting to happen on so many levels.

Recently a client of mine who is 17, started dating a 23 year old man, and while the age difference isn’t drastic, one has to think, what would a 23 year old man who could date anyone 18 and up, want with a 17 year old high school student? Of course they had a lot of that, often unprotected, but luckily she never got pregnant although she hasn’t gotten tested for any sexually transmitted diseases.After several months of bliss and sex, he started treating her badly and her moods were very erratic, varied by however they were doing at the moment.If they were good, she was happy, going to class, doing good.This search for belonging, often sends teenage girls into unhealthy relationships that further damage their self-esteem and often expose them to other damaging factors such as unprotected sex, drugs, alcohol and violence.During the teenage years, young people are trying to come into their own and often rebel against their parents and other adults, which is why they often chose friends and relationships that their parents disapprove of, including dating older men.Here’s a look at the latest celebrity power couple.
