Would you date someone even if your parents were against it?

Anonymous
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.
