The guy who is barely legal

The guy who is barely legal

Most girls growing up have crushes on guys the same age as them or slightly older. When you hit your early 20s, you start to become less picky. And you’re also at that experimental age where you think: Yeah, why not? Hell, you might even find you prefer dating guys slightly younger. However, there’ll come a point where you accidentally go for a guy who is barely legal. He will definitely not look that young and your friends will make fun of you for months after. Maybe even years later.

How you meet the younger guy

You’ve graduated university, but some of your friends haven’t yet. They still love going to uni parties and have somehow convinced you to come along as well. It’s a toga party, so you’ve grabbed an old white bed sheet and wound it tight around your body, over your shoulder. Past experience has taught you not to wear too much underneath as you’ll inevitably overheat in the uni bar. Make sure you wear a bikini with FULL COVERAGE…You never know what’ll happen.

Even though the uni drinks will be cheap, your friends insist on pre-drinking. By the time you do get to the uni bar, you’re more than a little tipsy. The ground will be sticky, the room heaving with bed sheet-clad guys and girls gyrating to your standard club music.

You’ll have more drinks with your friends and then similarly to the nightclub guy, you’ll turn and see a cute guy dancing near you. In your drunken state, you won’t notice anything other than the fact that he is tall and has a cute face.

The warning signs to look out for

Once you hook up with the younger guy, he will follow you around for most of the night. It’s a little endearing, but also… you just want to hang out with your friends. He’s almost like the cute puppy that you never had as a child. Sweet and amusing initially, but now you don’t want to feel responsible for another living thing.

He’ll be very attentive and race to buy you drinks as soon as you’re finished. He’ll hold your hand and act very much like your boyfriend even though you only met 40 minutes ago.

One of the biggest indicators that you’ve picked up a literal man-child, is that he won’t understand the jokes and older pop-culture references that your friends exchange. Once the magic of the hook-up has worn off, you’ll notice he lacks the arrogance and douchebaggery you’ve come to identify with guys in their mid-20s.

If his friends happen to come looking for him, you’ll also wake up from your drunken haze and realise how young he is once he stands next to his equally baby-chinned mates.

What do you next?

It seems really stupid, but you have to break up with him because he doesn’t understand the way that random bar hook-ups work. You’ll have to awkwardly avoid bumping into him for the rest of the night, but at least now you can hook up with another random guy if you want.
