Terrible excuse yes, but for all we know she doesn't deserve better. He could have just used that terrible excuse because she was a bitch etc. Not saying that is the case, just keeping an open mind :)


If there was something "wrong" with OPs behavior or attitude in their relationship, then he should have said that. It's hard, but in the end it will benefit him because he left her and is done with it. It will also benefit her (if she chooses) because she would be able to work on that aspect of her for her next relationship. My ex did that with me and if he didn't I probably wouldn't have changed myself for the better and be in the awesome relationship I am currently in.

That's the problem with people today everyone always looks for a excuse to get out things because its a lot easier to come up with a stupid excuse apparently than it is to just tell the truth and level with people. Most of the time it's the people that are doing something wrong that make up childish excuses to get out of it rather than telling the truth because they don't want to labeled a "bad" person, as harsh as the truth can be people just need to learn to start telling it because you can give excuse after excuse but eventually they will hear the truth from another person or find out the real reason and then you will be labeled a "idiot" "liar" and a "bad" person.



I don't think YOU know what irony is, because they used it in the correct context.

It's ironic because he's older, and because of this you would feel he is more mature than her.

However, she is more mature, despite being younger. Ergo, it is ironic.

Get it now? Or shall I dumb it down further?

Actually Manin, although that is ever so slightly ironic, the truly ironic part that the above poster was referencing was probably the fact that OP's boyfriend is dumping OP because he thinks she's too young for him, which is an immature thing to say in this case.

Actually now that I contemplate it, you're right, they are basically synonymous. I was just adding the fact that the OP was being immaturely dumped for allegedly being immature.

Also, your post was thumbed down because it was files as a reply to a comment while having absolutely little to do with their comment at all. Being unoriginal AND unrelevant at the same time will do that...


Wow! One does have a stick up one’s arse, doesn’t one? ;-) Who cares where I posted the thing? It’s not exactly a serious forum, it’s for fun. Besides, if you did thumb down ALL posts that say the same thing, there would not be much left there to read.

He was looking for any excuse. I assure you it had nothing to do with your age and EVERYTHING to do with his lack of balls.

If that's the best excuse he can come up with, he isn't worth a second thought. Move on with your life, and be happy he's no longer in it.

Maybe he is being paranoid cause you're 17 and he is 18? I have heard of asshole parents reporting on their daughter's 18yr old bf and he gets sent to prison for dating an underage minor. Even though imo a 17 and 18yr old dating isnt a big deal.

Some states have a "Romeo and Juliet" rule where if their age difference is 2-4 years, it doesn't matter if one is just above the legal age the other is just below.

Also, the age of consent is 16 or 17 in a lot of places. In the media it's 18 in like 99% of shows. And, probably not coincidentally, California.

I know in Texas it's legal to date if you are close together in age and one is over 18 and the other isn't. You just have to have your parents permission and can't have sex.

I was dating a guy two years older than me, not a big deal seeing as how we were both in highschool and I was turning 16, yet a cop still lectured my bf on the laws against having sex with a minor. We were both virgins. *awkward* Afterwards my bf told me it made him feel like a pedophile, so it is possible op's guy was in a similar situation but was too insecure to stay with his gf.
