This guy at my college is 8 years older than me. We are at a good start just friends for now. I would like to hang out with sometime but my mother doesn't like the age gap between us. My father on the other hand does not approve as well. I feel like the only choice I have is to go behind there back. I understand that I am 20 and still live with them but it's my life and they are not in control of my decisions or who I like. Please help? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Well look, parents will always worry and it will make them look stubborn and villainous at times. Right now, maybe think from their perspective about how your choices affect them. Consider the fact that once you are 21 their role in your life will significantly decrease. The Age gap is something you shouldn't care about really! its only a number. Hope to have answered you :) If you need any more help feel free to ask.1

They can be. 8 years is not that big of a deal though.0
