So my girlfriend and I have been dating for 4 months now. I met her mom the first couple weeks but i haven't met her father. My girlfriend doesn't want me to yet but we finally decided that it was time. I gotta admit, im very nervous. I know that he's going to ask me questions and im prepared just not for the "why should i let you date my daughter question". how should i anwer that? note that my girlfriend is 15 and i am 17. i dont want to hear "ohh she's to young for you dude" and stuff like that. i really like her and i know that the law won't me on my side. I think that her father will use our age difference to his advantage. any advice?

"The real question is why shouldn't you".
But really, that's a good question. I mean are you supposed to be cheesy and cliche about it, or assertive, or casual, or what? It seems like there's no completely right way to answer.
I don't know what your personality is like, but you have to communicate it how YOU would communicate it. Don't pretend to be something you're not.
I guess I'd recommend saying that you really care about her and you want to make her happy, and that she makes you happy, and that you'll support her, etc. Just phrase it in your own words... I mean, even if you continue on a monologue about it, that means you have a lot of reasons, and that means you really want to let him know that you want to date her and convince him to let you.0
