My 22 year-old friend is dating a 33 year-old guy!
Find out how to boost your performance with 22 year old hookup 33 year old healthy snacks. Start new discussion Reply. Follow 1 So I need advice! One of my oldest friends just moved to the town where I live and she just started dating one of my other friends.
Normally that'd be great but my girl friend is only 22 and my guy friend is My girl friend lived with her parents until now and so she's really innocent. She's never dated any one in a serious way and I know she's relatively inexperienced sexually. She seems pretty naive about how the dating world works.
My guy friend has been married before. He's been pretty screwed up since the divorce and since then he seems to only go after girls who are under the age of 25 I don't know why!
I've seen him date other girls who are around 22 or 23 and he always dates them really seriously for a couple months and then kind of breaks their hearts. One of my other good friends dated this guy 9 months ago and she's still really hurt over what happened. So basically I realize my guy friend has probably been so screwed up from his divorce that he doesn't really know 22 year old hookup 33 year old to have a real adult relationship anymore.
I think it's weird and kind of a bad sign that he will only go after younger girls. And now one of my best and oldest friends is getting drawn into this bad dating cycle. I don't think they've slept together yet so I feel like I still have time to save her What should I do?!?!
Follow 2 And why is he your friend? Follow 3 Original post by snailsareslimy And why is he your friend?
Follow 4 Should I try to convince her to stop seeing him? Or do I just have to wait for her to make her own mistakes? She doesn't seem to realize that this is a bad idea. Treeroy Follow 25 followers 15 badges Send a private message to Treeroy.
Follow 5 Original post by ellemay Well he's a fun friend to have around. I just know that it'd be a terrible idea to date him! So how do I convince my friend that it's a bad idea to date him? I think she just feels flattered that an older guy likes her.
She is acting kind of blind to all of the obvious bad signs.
Follow 6 She needs to make her own mistakes, tell her your worries, but if you tell her guns blazing, not to date him, you'll probably loose a friend. Posted from TSR Mobile.
Follow 7 Tell her what you told us. But ultimately it is her decision, and you should respect that. Follow 8 She's 22 years old, capable of looking after herself and learning from her mistakes. I wouldn't get too involved if I was you, just make sure you're there for her if things do go wrong.

If you're really worried about your friend and dont think she can handle it, i'd say maybe say something to her like 'be careful because ive heard x, y, z' but dont try and nag her about it or get upset if she doesnt break up with him.
