Honesty in an open forum, right off the bat – who'd have thunk it?
If someone older has sex with someone younger than the state’s age of consent, they can be charged with a criminal offence.Even if you agree to have sex with them, it is still against the law for that person to have sex with you if you are under the age of consent. There’s nothing wrong with falling in love with a teacher – in fact it’s not uncommon.Much like I don't screen people for specific ethnicities when considering a relationship, I also don't ask for a date of birth.Granted, there are certain age brackets above and below my own that would likely warrant the immediate no-go in my books, but I generally take the “organic” approach to dating. I’m talking about kids: The unforeseen element of Millennial dating.This is a great spot in which to find yourself when looking for vacancies in someone's heart.
Coming second to the greatest loves of someone's life ain't all that bad.

Having an older BF or GF isn’t necessarily a problem.
I let the cards fall where they may and go with my gut when it comes to chemistry between me and another person. If you elect to date above your generational boundaries, it's a reality and one that recently became mine.
The math in putting 1 1 together is hard enough; it's an equation we spend our whole lives trying to master until at last we form a solid pair. I met someone amazing, and at the same time, met his kids (also amazing). Now, some time later and armed with a better understanding, there are a few things I wish I'd known from the get-go that might have spared me some serious mental struggle: It sounds aggressive, as though I'm telling you that dating someone with kids will ensure you're always treated second-rate, never coming first and always neglected in some aspect for preferential love to the young ones. The kids will always come first, yes, but if he's a catch and you're lucky, you'll score second place.
More often than not, the majority will rule and being the other adult in the equation, you'll want to avoid whining and pouting in protest. If you operate on a fast-food palette, you'll likely be right at home with Mc Donald's breakfast and pizza dinners.
