Okay, the guy I like has pretty much told me he's also interested, but we both know full well that my parents would flip their lids if I dated him. He's 7 years older than me, and I'm turning 19 soon, he's already starting to lose his hair (bad genes I suppose), he is not in college, and probably never will go even though he wants too. He just can't afford it. He's a recovering alcoholic with a restricted driver's license. He's certainly got a dad's bod going for him.
But he's so good to me! He makes me laugh, and when I'm at work, I can be totally upset, but the second I see him I'm happy all over again. While he teases me a lot, he also treats me like a little princess pretty much. I mean I could go on and on about all his good qualities. He's hard working, and honest, and self aware... he realizes he's not the type of guy that men want their daughters dating. He's a good man, he's just made some stupid mistakes.

Everyone deserves a second chance, believe me, I've had a few myself, but you're 19, and he's 26, and he doesn't seem like he's really going anywhere in life. He may make you feel like a princess now, and for someone your age, I'm sure you feel like you've been through it all, but don't make a mistake that you'll regret ten years from now. Trust me, I was married for 9 years to the wrong person. Now I wish I had my twenties back.1

1.) Fuck his parent's
2.) I'm not dating his parent's
3.) Y'all are grown, either make decisions for yourself that make you happy or forever try to please people who will never be please with 95% of YOUR choices. They've made mistakes and over come them same as you, cause at some point... you have to woman up and live for you. Even if it doesn't work out... you will know how to handle the situation better next time in your relationship. The do's and don'ts of what you will accept and what you will not.
4.) My parents can't give me advice on who to be with until they listen to their own damn advice, it'll be the blind leading the blind. I'd rather take a chance and learn on my on if it'll work or not. Experience is a mf, but a good one at that.2
