You said it probably won't last and your right it probably wont.
So just be there because you don't wont to alienate yourself from her.
She actually dated him for about 3 years but I think if I had just gone with the flow instead of letting her know how I really felt, she would have broken up with him sooner. If forced to choose at this point, she will probably choose him just because kids that age don't want to admit mom is right.She'll probably drop him sooner if she thinks she is doing it because it was her idea & not moms. Hi C., I'm in my mid twenties and I still remember my days of rebeling. I really think you should be there for your daughter.About the Author: Brooke Lewis Brooke Lewis is a life coach and dating expert.Find out more about Brooke and the work she’s doing at her site, Be You and Be Fearless.I promise to keep you updated I hope in not too long of a time I can write "I'm relieved to say...." but until then I will remain supportive and pray, pray, pray!! He wasn't older but I just knew he was not the right one.
At first I let her know how much I did not like him but eventually I realized that the more I spoke against him, the more she was determined to be with him.
Whether repairing the kitchen table or planning a romantic evening, the male ego and inner child have a strong need and desire to get it right and succeed.
Men often feel this need after a failed marriage and while entering into a new relationship.
Oh, by the way, when my daughter finally told me they had broken up, I just said, "Oh ok" & that was it. Let her know how you feel without being overbearing.
If she is independent I have a feeling the more you push one way the more she will push another way and then it will more than likely get ugly.
We have talked about it and I have said "I do not approve" but I have also not said "break it off".
