why cant they just let me be happy. my mum keeps giving all too noticable gestures towards me dumping him, kind of a big hint.
they just say they dont see the point in us dating, and my sister told me nan thinks the same, no-one over 30 in my family will agree with me, everyones so against it. the only hope i have is that everyone young supports me. school kids, work mates, mine and his friends, anyone i know thats not an adult adult says good on me. so why do my elder family members hate it?
i am 18 and a half, my boyfriend is 17, is our dating a crime in the adult world?
so do your parents have a probelm with the fact that he's younger than you...or that he's your boyfriend?!?
im so confused?!?
love Katy ***
Why do you care about what your parents think?
At least you know they care.
If you also think that it's true then don't be upset - your problem is resolved. You shall strive to be irritating and rebellious towards your parents and go out with whoever you want, it's a good thing and they'll get over it someday and be happy for you, hopefully.
Who you choose to go out with is your decision and your parents should but out of your personal life. Its not for them to tell you who to date and more over its very unfair to push you to split up. Tell them how you feel and that you like this guy and hopefully they will accept it. If not sell them on ebay.
just try to be happy for yourself, at the end of the day you're living your own life and not what they want your life to be. If you can't convince them to like him then it doesn't really matter. would you rather be with someone your parents like but you not so keen on or someone you really like but your parents not so keen on?
