    I have no answer for that. Wouldn't be the first time a double standard popped up between men and women.

    Going into this, being completely understanding of the fact that levels of maturity change greatly within a matter of only a few years, I'd like to ask this.

    If a girl is 15 or 16 years old, would you be OK with dating her, knowing she was only 15 or 16, if you were in your early 20s?

    Would that be OK with you?

    I thought that most men would not be interested, remembering the old "15 will get you 20" saying.

    But apparently I am wrong, according to one poster here, and most young men would be OK dating a 16 year old.
    Not at all...even when I was in my early 20's. The gap in maturity level is huge when you're that young. Eventually that gap decreases over time but say a 23 year old dating a 15 year old has problems.

    I believe dating a 15 or 16 year old girl in most states is against the law

    And yet we see that many married women migrate their political views towards those of their husbands. This is reflected in large sample sized studies and we can probably see it in our own social circles.

    Sad. Not saying it doesn't happen, of course. I have a friend who reinvents herself, every single time she gets involved in a new relationship. But it's sad to think that people lose their sense of identity when becoming involved with someone else.

    Re: Poll for men only please, regarding sex with younger women

    People can answer the poll in two ways and I suspect that the poll results are showing this. The first way is to answer on the basis of desire and compatibility. The second way is to answer based on awareness of statutory rape law and societal customs. If there was no such law in place, then you'd be getting more men voting affirmatively.

    As someone pointed out, there are a few factors in play here. First, is the issue "Do you find young women sexually appealing and want to have sex with them?" and then there is "Would you want to be in a relationship with a young woman?" and then there is "Considering the laws, is it worth the risk to have anything to do with the young lady?"

    Evolution has wired the brains of men to find neotonous women sexually appealing. We're not talking prepubiscent here, at 16 these girls are in that stage of being half-girl and half-woman, and some are past the half-way mark. These girls have a different form of sexuality than more adult women. It's the innocence, the non-jadedness, the gullibility, the puppy love devotion and I'm sure other factors too. Most of these behavioral and physical traits are not turn-offs to men. They're not stable traits upon which to base a relationship, but they're well within the range of traits that men find attractive in women. The woman qualifier here is key. These girls have to be able to appear as young women, not prepubescent girls - normal men aren't wired to find little girls sexually attractive, so a late developing 16 year old is going to be seen by men differently than an early developing 16 year old girl.

    Look back in history and you see that girls this age, and younger still, were getting married, so that speaks to the fact that men were finding them attractive and suitable for marriage.

    The reason we have statutory rape laws is that these young women/girls are easily manipulated and older men are more sophisticated in how they can manipulate these young women. That though doesn't mean that all young women are manipulated easily and that all men are planning on manipulating these women. Some men are skeevers and some are men are honorable. Some girls/women are immature and some can handle a relationship. The very basis of a relationship is to move forward together and refrain from selfish manipulation, healthy relationships that is, so I don't see a reason why such age disparate relationships MUST fail. A professional colleague of mine is married and in such a relationship with a large age difference. She was in junior high school (I can't remember her exact age) and he was a graduate student in his mid-20s) when they met at a dinner at some cultural center and they knew each other for a few years, and he knew her parents, and they were all friends. They commenced a romantic relationship when she was a junior in HS. Then they got married after she graduated. They both made sacrifices. His career had to take her university experience into account. Her university education involved a few transfers and no sorority parties and no dorm living. They've been married 25+ years, have beautiful children, the age disparity between them is now more obvious (his age is starting to show) but she appears just as devoted to him as I see in younger newlyweds.

    I don't see that as sad, I see it as the nature of women. Men do this too, but in different ways. Women socialize and soften men. Look at the attitudes and behaviors of single men compared to married men and you will find all sorts of differences. Being changed by your partner isn't a sign of personal weakness.
