True, girls of 14 and 15 don't realize the full extent of what they are getting into, but they are old enough to know right from wrong and what smells fishy. I remember when I was 16, the man who owned the building, actually the whole block that the company I worked for was on, would come to see my boss and
stop to talk and flirt with me. One morning he was waiting for me when I got off the subway. He was in his big blue Cadillac, and offered to drive me to the office which was a good walk away. I absolutely refused to get in his car. I sensed this wasn't just a friendly favor. He tried to talk me into it, I wouldn't get in. Later my boss asked me why I wasn't "nice" to him. He said he liked me, was a very rich man, and could do lots of nice things for me. I said the guy was in his 40s, married with children my age, and I wasn't interested. I said to my boss if he likes young girls, why don't you introduce him to your daughter.
This man was wealthy and politically connected. His relatives held office in two states. I knew enough at 16 what he wanted and that it could come to no good. In fact, it scared the heck out of me.
