We’ve touched this topic intrigued to do something that is seen as a little “bad? You don’t want to date dopey dudes your age who still think that fart jokes are the height of humor.

But we can acknowledge the appeal of dating older dudes and still be grounded in a, perhaps harsh, reality at the same time: A relationship between a teen and an adult isn’t real. Duh, nobody is going to deny that feelings can’t be felt.

I have no interest in sitting here and saying that your heart palpitations for an older guy you might be dating aren’t real. But when we’re talking about a relationship between a teenager and an adult who is significantly older–yeah, not just some 16-year-old dating an 18-year-old–there is often something weirdly fraudulent about it.

If you’re 16, think about how different you were three years ago.

You’re probably borderline cringing right now (it’s normal, seriously).

As rad as it is to bond over your same taste in music and other interests, you still have to ask yourself if this relationship in the long run has more pros or cons, just as you would with any other relationship.

And I know, I know, all of this feels like a silly number game, but let’s be real with ourselves here: Age difference is a bigger deal when you’re younger than when you’re older.

In an interview this morning, Tyga denied that he’s sleeping with Kylie and says that they’re not dating, they’re just friends.

People can believe what they want to believe, but the fact is that the Internet is exploding with whether or not a relationship between a 25-year-old dude and a teenage girl is okay.

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock over the past 24 hours (or you’re just not really into Twitter beef), you probably heard about the spat between Amber Rose and Khloe Kardashian.

The issue: Amber Rose was side-eyeing the fact that rapper Tyga, 25-years-old, is allegedly dating Khloe’s 17-year-old sister Kylie Jenner.

If they aren’t, that’s a huge red flag, girl, and says a lot about the dude you’re dealing with.
