How Did You Break It To The Parents?Hi! I'm new (:
I'm 23 and have been dating a 49 year old man for about 5 months (and have been close friends for a year.) We have always clicked like crazy and have never run out of things to say. I know we haven't been together THAT long, but we are definitely in love.
I pretty much live at his house now (only staying at my own apartment about 2-3 nights per month...)
My lease will be up in the next three months and we have talked about me moving in with him.
The biggest issue is how I tell my parents... I don't know how they will react. Their opinion means so much to me. My boyfriend is petrified of meeting my dad (he's 2 years younger than my mom and 12 years younger than my dad). My parents are fairly accepting people.. and they want me to be happy, but I'm afraid they will look down on our relationship because they will want me to be with someone younger. Someone who can give them grandkids (my boyfriend had a vasectomy).
Tell me about when you broke the news to your parents/your significant other's parents? Do you have any tips for me?
