They may even want to make sure that you don't get lost in this. As a parent my biggest concern is that my child is safe. I am 24 and my boyfriend that I am living with is 43.As long as you can see that from their end, the talk should be ok. His parents have met me and like me even if they don't agree with the living arrangement.It's not at all that i fell in love with the wrong person, because i don't feel he is the wrong person at all, our only "problem" if any in our relationship is the age gap. As a dad, seeing that my daughter brings home a 40 (almost) year old guy... How important is the statement "age is just a number" to you?

I never thought twice about our relationship until i realized i was going to have to tell my mom.

We value the same things, he makes me incredibly happy, and i love him.

im 19 old girl n im dating a 23 yr old boy i truly lv him n he also lv me n his family lv me all of them they lv me but im facing a problem my mother doesn't knw tht im hv a boyfriend so people wht i suppose 2 do Well why don't you want to tell your mom? You are 19 focus yourself on making things happen, rather than when are things are going to happen to me? You shouldn't prioritize no boys until they proven themselves they can fully take care of you. What has happened with your parents and how do you feel about your decision to date someone so much older? I have a 19 year old dating a 35 year old and I'm so upset I'm sick.

I am 23 years old and have recently fallen in love with a 56 year old man. Dear Concerned Mother, I am as concerned as you are but I'm on the other side of the story.

Because whn you are sure, those OPINIONS are just opinions, not rules.

Now, I'm sure your parents wnat the best for you, I'm sure they want to know that you are safe in this situation, that you aren't going to shut them out, that you won't be used or hurt because of this relationship.

BUT don't let what they say - good or bad - define what it is that you have.

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.

My daughter is in her mid-20's and dating a man in his mid-40's. I understand that outside of committing a felony that there's nothing that I can do about it. I'm on the sidelines hoping that this "relationship" ends soon - very concerned. My ex was nvr a good guy, but i kept grudge against my parents for not letting me to take charge of my life, I know we wont end well, but my parent not only NEVER LISTEN, they cold towards me throughout the days, we never speak, we never look eye too eye.

I've avoided meeting this man because I'm convinced that it wouldn't work out well. Look I am a 23 year old and the man i have been seeing is 41. They even say that I was a *****, a worthless daughter, They despise me for not following the road they expected me to walk.

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...
