If you're a dad with a 20 something year old daughter, how would you handle your little darling dating someone who is your own age? An aligning of planets given that girls mature faster than boys?

There's absolutely no denying that a man who is older than you is definitely more mature than the one who is either your age, or younger. Because honestly, dealing with immature guys is like taking care of a man child, and no woman's got time for that.
