So my dad really likes one of my friends. I also had a crush on him for the longest but never came around to telling him. Also I never told my dad about my feelings for him. I know he cares for me but doesn't love me. My dad been telling me that he likes him and wants me to get married to him. I always tired get my dad to forget him. When i realized my dad had his heart set on him, i told him that at least talk to him before talking to his father.
My dad invited his dad and him to my house for something else. I never thought my dad would bring up marriage since I told him to speak to him first then his dad. I dont know what was said since I was in the other room. But I told my friend that I want to speak to him in person.
I dont what to say to him. I didn't tell him my dad was thinking about him for me. He hates dishonest people and I made a mistake. I thought my dad would speak to him first because I know he would say no. I probably lost his friendship and I dont know what to do

I have parents that are similar, and they've put me and my boyfriend in an awkward position as well. My parents also has his heart set on him, they talked to his about marriage, and they agree they want us to. So now we have pressure from both side. My father always acts as kind of a dating coach. My dad even asks him about our sex life and if he's satisfying me! At that point I had to really put my foot down and tell them to back off and to let us make that decision.
What you should to, is reiterate to your father that it's ultimately up to you both. Stay honest with your feelings. As for you dad, you can't change his opinions, however you should take his advice and respect them.
If your dad likes him that much, I'd definitely give dating your friend a shot. You should tell your friend that you have feelings for him, if you decide you want to pursue a relationship. You can still remind your father though it's ultimately your choice.0
