Daughter dating man older than father catholicpeoplemeet dating
And then there’s the basic matter of it just feeling unseemly.Out of all the fish in the sea, why someone around the age of the child you reared?But to my friend, it’s not as interesting as it is suspicious and a little embarrassing. She could have been one of our classmates for goodness sake.And when your parents start rocking the cradle, you often have to face the fact that, in case you forgot, they’re sexual beings too. They’re sexually attracted to someone around your age and probably engaging in some sexual acts with them (*gags*).But then again, let’s be honest: Most of Knowles’s moves, both business and romantic, are inappropriate, mkay?But what makes this particular situation different is that it seems as though my friend’s father and his new boo, despite her age, seem to genuinely care for one another.While going down the list of loved ones, she shared a bit of information with me that raised my eyebrows: “My dad’s good. He’s got a girlfriend…and she’s like my age.” In true Jim Carrey as Ace Ventura fashion, I responded with “Oh re-he-he-heeeeeally? For most of us, the idea of our parents dating is hard. He calls her his ‘friend’ but it’s obvious that they’re kind of serious.” Not serious enough to walk down the aisle, though.

So instead of being out here running wild, spending money and being in a stereotypical older-man-meets-and-dates-young-girl-while-driving-a-sports-car-through-a-midlife-crisis situation, they enrich one another’s life, and I can respect that. I wouldn’t say that she should let her guard down completely just because her father has.
But if he’s happy, and homegirl doesn’t seem shady, she shouldn’t try and get in the way of that.
I tried to push him to make life changes, so he left me for a fresh 18-year-old.
I stopped talking to him and realized how messed up he was to have been interested in me in the first place at that time in my life.
