    Is there any way you could talk to your mum about it? If you explain that you didn't want to cause him to worry unnecessarily, but you're old/mature enough now to accept responsibility for your own actions and make your own decisions, and you think this is the right thing to do. It's often quite hard for parents to see their children grow up and change along the way, and fathers often find it even worse. But if you can get your mum to see things from your perspective, she might be able to offer him more reassurance that this is the natural thing to do given your situation and relationship. Good luck! :hugs:

    When I read the first part, I assumed you were 16 or 17 and he was being a father who's finding it hard to accept his little girl is growing up, but 22??! How is it any of your dad's business where you live and who you have sex with? That's just weird. Is he going to still be telling you what to do when you're 30?
