My parents are against dating
I’ve been dating an amazing man for about 10 months.He’s 15 years older, has been married before and has kids.You'll fall for somebody that your parents don't like.Sometimes their disapproval will be valid, other times it will be irrational, but no matter what it will be hard for you to deal with.Their reaction is wrong but it is based on their love for you and their desire to see you get the best out of life.Sometimes parents cling to outdated social attitudes.Are you dating this person because of pressure from friends or in the name of popularity?If your feelings are based on your reputation rather than your heart you are being unfair to the person you're dating and your parents.
Problem: When I brought this up with my parents about six months in, they exploded. They are now pretending I never mentioned anything and are trying to set me up with other guys.
If you have access to good counseling, please consider it.
Mutual respect is what makes a good family go, and I see none in your parents’ actions toward you.
With the relationship out of the way you will be able to focus on the real issue of why you feel the need to resort to such drastic rebellion in the first place.
Do you have real and deep feelings for this person, or do you have less heart felt reasons for the relationship?
