Dear Dish-It: My Dad's Girlfriend Is Too Young

My Dad's Girlfriend Is Too Young
My Dad's Girlfriend Is Too Young

Dear Dish-It,

My dad's 31 and I'm 12 and he's dating an 18-year-old. She's nice but I think she's too young for him. He's constantly saying she's boring and he's gonna dump her. Then the next minute he says she's gonna move in with us. Should I tell my dad how I feel about him going out with someone six years older than me?

Dear emo chick9877,


Suddenly having a new adult in your life and your home can be really tough. It sounds like you feel uncomfortable with your dad's new girlfriend, and you probably have a lot of questions you want to ask him. I think you should ask your dad if you can speak to him alone, and let him know how you feel about the situation. Maybe he'll be able to answer some of your questions about his girlfriend and her age, and his answers might make you feel better. You'll never know until you ask.


Unfortunately, your dad is an adult and that means he's allowed to make his own choices. While you can definitely let him know how you feel about the choices that he makes, you have to understand that he may not agree with you. But the good news is, if you keep an open mind, you may be able to understand where he's coming from, and that could also help you get used to his younger girlfriend.

    It's not worth losing your parents trust over. I'd wait.

Yep ^-^ Anyway, the best thing to do would be to wait. Know that if does like you, he'll respect that. Sneaking around your parents won't help. If you can't be honest with a relationship, it's likely not a good one. Patience. You'll learn that it's worth it (:

Why can't she understand?  I honestly, can't say. I'm going to need a bit more information in order to give an answer  -that's not solely based on guessing. Thanks!

    Hmm... it looks like what I wanted to "say" has been covered. They're right. The best thing to do would to be to talk to them -and then have them talk to each other.
