Love and age

by Nikki thaxton

I am in love with this guy and I've never felt this way before. He's 23 and I'm only 17. We haven't told my dad. We have gone really far in our relationship. I'm scared if I tell my dad he will say no. What should I do?

Go and tell your dad that you are in love with that guy... Have that much courage!

Although you haven't told me very much about your relationship with your dad, I sense that you're concerned about the fact that you haven't told him about your boyfriend. While I'm guessing he won't be happy that you've been hiding something from him, I suggest that you come clean about what's happened.

Tell him that you've been seeing someone who is older. Apologize for not telling him sooner but admit that you were scared that he would ask you to end the relationship. I can predict how he'll feel about the fact that you've "gone really far in your relationship", but I'm wondering if you feel that you're ready for this at this point in your life. Think about it. For instance, getting pregnant at this age will forever change the course of your life.

If your dad is open, he might be willing to meet your boyfriend. This way, he can gauge whether he truly cares for you (or if he's taking advantage) and if he has your best interests at heart. Understand that at this stage of your life it is your dad's job to be protective.
