We had an argument and he threw me with this question.
He's 20, living at home. He's liked girls big time since high-school. Thing is he's never really stopped. Many of his friends were underclassmen, so are now Juniors and Seniors themselves. So, he still notices girls in high-school.
I told him now that he's over 18 he's not supposed to. He said:
"How am I magically supposed to stop noticing girls only a few years younger than me that I've known personally for years? We're practically the same age. At what point is a guy supposed to stop noticing girls that age? And does she magically become okay to notice again when she's 18? Sorry, Mom but if a girl is pretty at 16 & 17, she's going to be just a pretty at 18, as well, and guys are gonna notice them if they dress like they do. You don't just turn off the hormones or put on blinders for a year or two until she's legal. You notice what you notice."
I didn't really have an answer, given he is sort of right, I just said there's legal issues involved and he needs to be careful.
