I can state with great confidence that most normal well-adjusted 30 year old men (and more than a few men in their late 20’s) would run to the nearest psychologist if they ever seriously thought about having that kind of a relationship with a 16 year old child.
It’s pretty common for men to date younger women – which is exactly why dating older women is so enjoyable.
