His friends are probably laughing at him, or better yet, he is hiding it from them out of shame. NO mentally healthy 28 year old MAN, has a "relationship" with a 15 year old. A man enters into a situation with a young teenager for one reason and we all know what it is. If he really was a great guy, he would be with a person his own age and not preying on a young teen who is naive and has less than half the life experiences he does.

The girl may think this, but I guarantee you the guy is grooming her. It's illegal and sick, the police must be involved. Kick the man in the balls and never allow them to see each other.

That she's young and inexperienced about what she wants from life and what is out there in the world. If he is in love with her, then he can wait to date her after she is much older. How could this child's parents allow her to "just be friends" and "go on dates" with a 28 YEAR OLD MAN!!!?

Why is he interested in a child instead of a woman nearer his own age? If the relationship with him is illegal, they need to talk to the police.

Tell him that this is still a child - goodness knows, she probably hasn't even had her monthly period for more than 2 years - does he like young girls? Men this age aren't interested in a friendship with a 15 year old girl.

I would also call the police and notify them of the situation.

This isn't just about rebellion from the parents - this could very well be an abusive situation.28 year old men do not date women they don't have sexual plans for, and they certainly don't date 15 year olds.I hate to be so negative, but THIS is exactly how preditors behave. There is no reason for either of them to date or have a friendship with someone of the other person's age. No matter if it is friendship or not, a 28 year old man has NO business being in the presence of a 15 year old under any circumstances alone. Just a matter of time before he drugs her and rapes her or they do have sex... At his age he knows better than to date a young girl. If I were her parent, I'd talk to the school health teacher. How and why is this woman allowing her 15 year old to be leaving the house with him anyways? Yeah, he's a predator and should be reported as such. She's also naive to think that a 28 year old man is not interested in sex.This bothers me on many levels, and it should bother the child's parents as well... I am a 27-year-old female, and I would find it very disturbing if one of my peers wanted to have a relationship with a high school student.
