Parent Told Me to Break Up

My parent told me to break up with my boyfriend. We have been dating for 8 months and he is always there when I need him. I think he might be the one because I get this feeling of unconditional love. Should I follow my heart or listen to my parent?

parent told me to break up

What an old man sees while sitting down, a child cannot see even while standing on an iroko tree.

My point is, your parent has a good reason for asking you to do that. Even if you don't want to permanently breakup, just try spending some time apart. Say two months. See how your feelings are. If they does not diminish, then you should try to convince your parent to see things your way.

follow your heart
by: maria

My opinion is: please follow your heart. If you break up your relationship with your boyfriend, you will regret it later.

Parents and Boyfriend
by: Anonymous

Hey,

Your parents are a big part of your life. Your boyfriend sounds sweet. I have learned that the best thing is to follow your heart because it will never let you down.

Maybe your heart does not always know what you want, but it does make you who you are. So the last thing I'll tell you is to be happy...as for your parents, talk to them. Tell them what you feel. Maybe they have a good reason why they want you to break up with him. If not, then do what will make you happy.

Parent Told Me to Break Up
by: Penny

Tamara,

I would like to share something with you. When I was sixteen I met this guy who was just the apple of my eye and my heart; I fell in love with him. My mother simply adored him, but my father told me not to marry him because he wasn't strong enough for me.

You know how we can be when love steps in, blind as a bat, emotional and inexperienced, all we FEEL is "I LOVE HIM." I married that guy!

As it turned out, my mother was wrong and my father was right. A man is the best judge of a man and our parents always want what's best for us.

Your young man as you said your parents said will be going off to college. Why don't you let things ride...wait until both of you have finished college. More than likely the two of you will be corresponding during that time. It will allow some time for both of you to see how things will go when you are apart.

I understand how love makes you think, but don't let your emotions rule your thinking. A life time is a long time, don't rush this decision.


I'm sure your parents love you every bit as much as you love this guy! "THINK ABOUT IT AND CONSIDER WHAT YOUR PARENTS HAVE SAID."

thank everyone for the help
by: Tamara

It's me...the one who posted about the parent who told me to break up. Well first, you wanted to know my age and I am 17 years old.

My parent told me to break up with my boyfriend because he is going go college soon, so that is one of the reasons. Also I feel he is the one because i have known him for about a year and a half before we dated. Thank you for the relationship advice.

Only You!
by: Cher

It doesn't matter what any of us say, you have to do what's best for you. But there are a few things you do need to consider and maybe that's where we come in. 1) Your age - it does sound like you are still a kid because if you were an adult, your parents will not make that demand to you unless it's warranted and even then it can only be voiced and not demanded.

Secondly, assuming you are a kid (below 16), has this guy done something to have them come to that conclusion?

Third, are you even old enough to date? Fourth, In the few months you have known this guy...what gives you the impression he is ready to step in your parents] shoes?

Lastly, your parents are the adults...hear them out before you jump to a conclusion...there will be other boys...but they are your only parents! Think about it...I'm sure you already know the answer.

hi dear

There are so many key factors in this question that they are missing. First of all, what is your age, second, why did your parents tell you to stop seeing him? There must be a good reason behind it.

Anyway, nobody can tell you what to do. You have a make a decision, and stick to it. Put all the facts together (is it worth it, did your parents maybe see something that you cannot see, where this is going...so many things).

Make a decision. This is your life, you have to live it, not us.

Parents Told Me to Dump My Boyfriend
by: Temika

When you fall for someone you should never let anyone steal your happiness (or your man). My parents told me to dump my boy friend and I didn't because when I'm around him, I'm actually happy and to this day, I'm so glad I followed my heart. We are not together anymore but that's another story!
