Being groomed is what it's called when a younger child under the age of 18 is sexually exploited by an adult or someone way older than them. Teens and even kids get groomed at a young age for being easy to manipulate, which is why creeps called "groomers" go for them.
Theres nothing a teenager can provide for an adult besides their innocence which will get them taken advantage of and groomed. It's best to stay away from older men or woman who act flirty toward you. you're not special to them they will just use you.

When a sexual or other kind of predator sets the stage for abusing another, such as a child or other person (as in the case of sex and theory human trafficking).

Trust: May give toys and/or other gifts and favors to the intended victim to gain trust.

Alienation: Settings the stage for the intended victim to become alienated from their primary caregivers/circles or family and community.

Fear/dependency: Sets up a power dynamic in which the victim feels too afraid to report the abuse, perhaps by involving the victim in activities their friends and family might judge the victim negatively for, such as drug use (or even the abuse itself).
By the time the girl understood how bad her situation had become the neighbor had been grooming her so carefuly and for so long that she felt she could not go home or to the police and so saw no way out of her situation. Thankfully a relative noticed her distress and had the sense to seek help from the county's intervention program.

n. A creature that has the mixed heritage of a night owl and a screeching monkey with a bad nose cold.

Uncommonly polite, dedicated to good grammar and proper etiquette, the Groome will often correct people when they say something that doesn't sound right to it, but is often confused when an inordinate number of people do inpolite things at once. In these situations it will snap and utter the word 'Shhhhh!', which in its native language means 'I am a rascist'.

v. causing someone pain acute to wrapping the palm around their testicles (or labia) and squeezing hard while tearing away the skin. This was used as a medieval torture method for many years, but is now just a metaphor, can mean mental pain.

adj. when someone is Groome, they can be described as having either the appearance or behavior of a cross between a screech monkey with a nose cold and a night owl.
n. I was trying to get some sleep in class, but then that Groome told me to sit in the back!
