    I really like this guy blah blah blah... but his driving completely turns me off and makes me worried and I don’t think I could deal being in a relationship with him.
    He’s 19 and he drives like he’s on an F1 track all the time. Racing up and out the street we live in, and skidding out. I don’t know if this is an act to impress me or what. But my neighbours all have small children all under 4 and am worried for them.

    I’ve told him many many times that I think his driving really needs to change, but 2 years later, he still drives recklessly regardless of the numerous occasions I’ve spoke to him about this.

    This really turns me off big time and I don’t want to be involved in a relationship like that. I would never want to get into his car and go places for the fear of my own safety. We’d have to remain home all the time (don’t live near public transport).
    He nearly crashed into me yesterday !! and im don't think id want him in my car as he would probs pressure me to speed and what not, typical teen behaviour. bearing in mind ive only just passed my test so not 100% confident yet anyway,

    Thing is he’s really lovely person and I am completely falling for him – and he knows it. What should I do??

    Start considering what you're gonna say at his eulogy, after the fatal crash.

    I personally think....

    1) you should not go out with him.
    2) if you are falling for him stop spending time with him for a while until you get over him/he changes his driving.

    But if you like everything else about him, why should one small matter mean that you don't try things with him! TSR are so quick to be like 'no don't go there'. Personally if thats the only thing that you don't like about him, go for it! And maybe when he has someone else in the car with him he'd drive differently?

    Tell him to stop driving like a **** or you won't get in the car with him. Then see his response, its probably the only thing you can keep doing.
