Me and my boyfriend have been going out for nearly 2 months now. Everything is going good he treats me right and makes sure I get attention as well as support etc. Thing is I'm 18 and he's 24(almost 25) and I don't know what my mom is going to say about it. His parents probably won't care but what I'm concerned about is if she'll approve or not. I'm still in high school while he graduated college with a teaching degree for young kids. We like just about the same stuff and he's already said I love you and starting to think about the future. Do you think this is appropriate?

Wait until you are older. If he is the one for you then he will still be there. If he really loves you and cares about you the way he claims he will wait for you to figure out who you are as a woman and what you want in life. If he does that then he really cares about you and is concerned about your happiness. Depending on your culture your parents will probably have a fit. Prepare for a fight and ask yourself is it worth it. When you are you 4 or 5 years may seem like a long time, but it is not I promise. The key is to wait until you are in a mature state. When you are truly in a mature state at least 24 years old...you won't care about what anyone thinks of your man because you will love him so much more and it won't be because of hormones. Listen to your parents for now. If they seem to be rational overall then take their advice for now. At present they love you more then he can. Be wise and spare yourself pain. If he really loves you he will wait. I once had an older man who wanted to marry me and he waited five years before he mentioned it. Unfortunately, I didn't love him the same way. However, when I was younger I was crazy about him. So happy he waited until I was able to make a mature decision. I spared us both pain. Now I have found a man I am truly in love with and for all the right reasons.0
