I’m going to briefly use myself as an example, since I never, ever do that.When I declared in 1993 that I was cancelling my LSATs and becoming a comedy writer, my parents supported me. What do you do when your parents don’t approve or feel that the person you love/dating is the right person for you? And while I like to maintain a separation between church and date, I don’t think your culture can be entirely ignored here. So if your parents are super-caring and attentive, they’re likely to be overprotective.Do you respect their wishes and find someone who is welcome at home and around your family, or do you follow your heart and stay with the person you love even if your parents may not attend the wedding? I’ve explored this concept before, in relation to successful women, but I think it applies to Judaism as well. If they’re intelligent, they’re likely to be opinionated. G., I am the proud but frustrated mother of three kids.
I dont think hes some sicko perv, but I AM uncomfortable with the age difference.
So the last few weeks, I notice her texting and talking on the phone to Guy more and more. She and I have discussed sex, safe sex, responsibility and consequences on numerous occasions, and she has confided in me about some of her friends activities; some that she disagrees with.
I start to question her on the nature of their relationship. On that note, I feel she is comfortable talking and being open with me.
From a practical standpoint, think about it like this.
If you were going to spend a lot of money to buy a new car and you personally knew little about how cars work, wouldn’t you want an expert to help you buy the right one?
