I am dating a man 12 years older than me
Does my mother agree with the choice i am making no she doesnt, but she accepts it and supports me no matter how much she disagrees. They never approved my choice of course in diploma (graphic design).I mean why are you going to just avoid the man your daughter is with just because of the age? Saying that what I did is rubbish, my future is dim, my assignments was never "a thing" They never respect my choice, and yet my boyfriend was so work out on the approval part. A little piece of advice, Understand you daughter, tell her to bring him home often so that you could observe their relationship. Listen to your daughter about what kinda man he is to her. It could be his a man worth you daughter's love, it could be not. If he's a bad guy, she'll feels it, and she'll let you know her concerns.My sisters called me sick, a *****, and worst of all, to go to hell. And I am pretty sure your daughter sees it the same way. Although the number may not be as big between the two of us, it is definitely there. I for one fell for someone my senior and the funny thing is I don't have "daddy issues" at all.It is not your place to decide whether they should be together or not. At first my parents were somewhat supportive yet rightfully concerned and then pushed me to break things off, but I feel like it only made matters worse. In fact my father and I have a great relationship and he is very much present in my life.
You will meet many people who will oppose your relationship with this man, and as long as it is healthy, loving and growing (something that makes BOTH of you better people as a result of it) then make sure you are sure.When we both attempt to 'think' about our relationship, we have no answers to the questions from everyone else. It is only when we 'feel' how right the relationship is that our situation makes sense. My boyfriend is 24 years old older than me, I'm 22 .. But what concern him the most is my parents approval. But I could say that if he chose to let me go because of tough love...In fact, we AGREE with everyone else: YES, it is inappropriate. This is the last thing I planned on in my young life, believe me. for my future and for me to get a better and younger man, i doubt that i would turn out as good as he imagine. I'll hate my parents for not being understanding and supportive, and I'll hate him for betraying my love, my trust.If they don't like it, just remember you are an adult and are able to make your own decisions. And i hope you guys are wearing protection if you guys are having intercourse.
Just say that you appreciate their concern and their advice, but this is what you want. The least thing you want right now is being prego - at a young age. I mean if your bf is helping you in one way or another good, even better.I know it is a tough thing to go through, but to be honest, if you are happy, then they "should" be happy for you. They always feel like they know what you should do and that their way is the right way.
