My 28 year old daughter doesn’t approve of the fact that my girlfriend is only 4 years older than her
I met this amazing woman on this website called Loveme.
Her name is Yulia, she’s from the Ukraine, and everything about her is just great.
She’s so smart and funny, and we just connect on so many levels.
I’ll be the first to admit that we have a significant age gap I’m 59, and she’s only 33 years old.
But the age gap has never been an issue.
We’ve always been upfront with each other.
We had been dating for almost 18 months before I decided to introduce her to my family.
I have 3 kids, the 2 sons and 1 daughter.
My eldest daughter is 28 years old, she’s never really been open to the idea of me dating someone who’s only a few years older than her.
My two sons, 25 and 23, don’t really mind, they’ve actually been pretty supportive.
I’m starting to seriously consider proposing to Yulia.
I want my entire family to support the two of us.
I’m asking if there’s anything I can do to make the two of them get along? Even though my daughter has her own place, she comes over fairly often, I really want us all to get along.
Do you have any advice or suggestions on what I can do about this situation? I’d really appreciate it.
Hi Nathan28, Let's get one thing straight. If a woman dislikes another woman, then there is nothing men can do. It is not within our limits to completely understand women. Though I would advise, you try talking to your daughter about your girlfriend. If you want your one big happy family, you have to make her understand the importance of this relationship for you. Explain to her that age is just a number and it's the individual personality of a person that makes them incompatible with someone. Assure her she will get along with Yulia and there won't be any awkwardness among the two ladies. You must know your daughter better, so find a way to convince her. It should not be difficult for a father to convince her daughter. Good luck, hope your wish for one happy family comes true.
