Best thing to do is to just tell them and get it over with.
People will say bad things and people will say good things. you are absolutely right about being confident in what i'm doing, and i DO believe in what i am doing with him. There really is no way you can know what they will think... Will it tear apart the relationship you believe in?
The more you are confident in YOU, the less the bad stuff affects your decisions. A loving reciprocal relationship is tough to come by. I hope that when i do tell my parents they'll see how much i love him, and how sure i am in our relationship. There is no way on this earth that you can get them to 'like' the idea of you dating a much older guy. Going in and talking with them, you have realize BEFOREHAND that they can say whatever they feel.
During one scene, Nick (who else has a major crush on him??
) starts talking to a girl in college who, he realizes, "doesn't know what is." For your date with an older gent: as cool as it is, not everyone needs to know that you were part of an NSYNC fan club (cough cough).
And I've added a couple of my own tips for good measure, since I am the younger woman and all. DON' T point out how "cute" his first grey chest hair is (OOPS).
But I've been watching and compiled a list of DOs and DON' Ts from Jess's experience dating the sophisticated Dermot Mulroney as Fancypants, who's a whopping twelve years older.He treats me so well and is everything I ever wanted in a man. They think it is "creepy" and that they don't support me in my decision.I know it is a tough thing to go through, but to be honest, if you are happy, then they "should" be happy for you. They always feel like they know what you should do and that their way is the right way.Or, you know, some version of whining about your age. With age (often) comes maturity and chivalry—take advantage!Cece even tells Jess as she's first considering dating Russell (the one and only Fancypants) that "he intimidates you because you wouldn't have to take care of him, he'd take care of you."DON' T make your man feel older than he actually is (or date yourself).You will meet many people who will oppose your relationship with this man, and as long as it is healthy, loving and growing (something that makes BOTH of you better people as a result of it) then make sure you are sure.
