I guess I see more wrong with a dad having this expectation of his daughter, than her cooperation with it...but if you and your dad agree, what does it matter to anybody else?
Nothing wrong with it. It's all about respecting your father's decision and waiting for the right time to date
I am in the same situation as you are :)
It just proves how much you really care and love your father since you trust his decisions coz he knows what's best for you :)
Nothing is wrong with you showing respect for your dad in this way. He's trying to keep you safe from any harm is all he is trying to do okay. Yes you should respect him, but if you choose to date anyone you should be able to at any time and at any day, but don't bring your date to your dad's house If he doesn't Agree with you wanting to date someone. But you are free to choose as you wish of course, But Respecting your dad is a very good thing, it will save you from a lot of trouble on yourself, that could cause you future problems. I'm glad you are a Respectful Girl, You make me smile at you(:-). We need more Woman Like You, You Are Brilliant(:-).
if you are under your father,and if he is the one who gave you everything,yes,you have to listening him.
But you can have your own idea after you stand alone by your own.
No, there is nothing wrong with that at all. It's actually a good thing. I dated whenever I was in high school, and, thankfully, I am still with that guy, but some of my friends dated and they fell behind in their studies. So, its a pretty good idea. :)
No, that seems reasonable.
Legal adult means you have the right to choose either way, and for any reason; it doesn't trade one right for another.
That's great, brit! That'll be something to be proud of for sure! You gonna give college a try?
WOAH you got some plans! Sounds exciting either way. And I've glanced around at art schools; they tend to be expensive! (But don't let the scholarship be the deciding factor; I'd look more at what I was going to do with the degree.)
Being respectful to a parent or of their concerns for your well being is ALWAYS right. HOWEVER, you're 19? I do believe there comes a point when parents need to step back a little and allow their children to make decisions for themselves. That doesn't mean those decisions are a free for all. There most definitely should be consequences for certain behaviors if your father is supporting you fully. But dating is a natural part of young life and I believe it is necessary to the growth of all young women and men.
I have an 18 year old son and am finding it very difficult to loosen those apron strings, myself. But I can see more an more HIS need to make choices for himself in order for HIM to grow.... It's hard to let go, as a parent. But it's also just as necessary for the growth and development of your children...
Yes, there is no way I would listen to my parents if they say **** like that
Not normal??? Maybe not the norm by societies standards. I think it's great and nice of you to honour his wishes. He wants u to concentrate on your future. You have the rest of your life to work on boys. Some people get to attached in high school and it affects there judgement of where they want to go to school and what they want to do in life; they make compromises to be together. That's fine if they are truly in love . Make No Compromises.
No I don't think it's wrong. As you say you are living in his house at his expense, it keeps your mind on your studies and as the previous reply says it may help you avoid something you may regret later.
no I don't see anything wrong with that - it means you cocnetnrate more on school work and it means you won't do anything you'll later regret with some guy who doesn;t deserve you
Brit, I know how your dad feels. I believe all fathers do about their daughters. We try to protect you the best we can. You young girls may think we are mean but that is not true. We know how young men think.
