I just transferred schools and I met a guy who I'm strangely attracted to. He's cute, but he's basically the total opposite of my type and I'm 100% sure my parents would hate him. I usually only like sweet genuine good guys. He drinks, he smokes, he curses a lot, and a lot of other stuff. He's not a good guy but I like him. I'm 100% sure he likes me too, but I'm not sure that I should invest my time in him because I know he's a bad guy and if we ever got into a serious relationship my parents would hate him. We had a little talk yesterday and I told him why I won't date him becuase he's so immature, and he smokes, drinks, etc. He said he'll "try" to do better. But I doubt it.

Well, i'm old and my kids are on the cusp of dating.
You need (not just around this guy, but in general), to draw a distinction between:
- guys who aren't particularly well behaved
- guys who are reckless to an extent that's dangerous
- guys who are actually not very nice.
If this guy isn't deep down a decent guy who happens to party more than he maybe should, i wouldn't avoid him (though you don't want to necessarily pick up his lifestyle). If he seems like a decent guy who also gets drunk and drives around or something similar, you should avoid him because he's a time bomb, even if he's a nice guy. And if he's not just a bad boy in image, but actually a jerk, stay the hell away from him because he'll make you miserable.0

Nope. Nope. Nope.
Of course, my parents have good tastes in guys lmao
Or maybe I do.
They'd only hate him if he was deep into illegal shit or abusive or something and I have no desire to date someone like that anyway.
When my current guy and I started dating his parents told him they'd write him out of their will and his two sisters told him they'd boycott our wedding and disown him.
Annnd now, it's taken me 4 long years, but they've all come around to how I'm freaking fantastic :p1
