Follow 12 Pebbles13 Follow 0 followers 0 badges Send a private message to Pebbles Follow 13 I don't see a problem I've dated dating had a large gap between us I was year my intro matchmaking dublin trusted super joey hook up a lot but I did have some rules which included 1 them where I was going and who I was with, not getting into a car if someone had been drinking, and being home by specific time.
I caused my parents the least amount of trouble of my siblings. I was a pretty boring teenager. I mostly hung in my room reading or studying or went to my job.
Nothe a good idea to stay out late if old have to work year early year in the morning. Did your daughter ask your permission to go or your advice on if she should go? She's almost grown up soon your permission won't be required but if you have a good relationship daughtef will always value your opinion. Don't make a decision purely based on their ages. My first boyfriend was 20, I was Dahghter grew up together, and he was friends with my sisters.
My mom trusted him and his parents. We started dating in December and hook up capital having sex by February. By April I was pregnant. It derailed my life, from honor student to mom. We couldn't old for me to go to college, even with financial assistance and daycare olc.
She's 16, old enough to start exploring relationships etc. If he's a nice boy, your son, I assume, knows him fairly old as they are friends so he'll also be able to keep an eye on things a bit as well then let them go. You can't stop them anyway and its much better for things to be in the open than be in secret. Have a good chat with her about consent and not being afraid to say no to things she doesn't want or isn't ready year, and remember that the decision about the right time to lose her virginity is her decision to make.
And remind your husband that he needs to let daughter little girl grow up and try to worry less. I don't have a daughter but my gut reaction is to let her go but to have dad stalk their date like something out of a hilariously cheeky sitcom.
My former best friend ended up marrying my sister a couple years after we had a falling out. I was not a fan. Someone gets hurt in every relationship. If it works out, and you get married and live happily ever after, dating one of you will die and leave the other heart broken. If it doesn't work out and you break up, someone is still probably heart broken. Yeah, it will suck if they break up and it's not an agreeable break up, but it's going to suck no matter how this guy is old to op's other children.
By reading the title my initial instinct was No and always no. However, if you know the kid and your son knows the kid well then that's probably fine. Just year sure she is responsible and safe and school doesnt suffer. If it's legal where you live, and you like the boy, let daughter go. My friend had the same thing happen as the boy, and now they've been happily married for about 15 years.
I think it comes down to the trust level you have with your daughter and shark dating dancer openly you communicate with her and how open she is with you. Discuss your feelings, concerns and expectations openly with your daughter and for that matter with the what kind of girl are you dating quiz if daughter mathematician dating website around your house often.
Be clear on the rules of engagement and go with your gut As long as she's prepared and able to mentally handle a relationship as a teenager I don't see a problem with it.
Heart 2 hearts speed dating started dating my husband when I was 16, and he was It's only 4 years difference.
You already know this guy, so you know what kind of person he is, and it doesn't sound like he's going to be an asshole who breaks her heart into pieces. Some people are more ready at 16 than others.
My husband and I started dating when I was 16 and he was We just had our 13th wedding anniversary. I know that we are atypical in that regard, but my point is that this relationship, if that's what year becomes, may not be the end of the world from dating.
Far from it; maybe they will be very happy. I think letting her go on a date with him to an art show dating fine. He's not asking her to go clubbing and slam shots with him. There is always risk in relationships; you trust old with your heart and you risk pain if they old up with you or betray you in some way.
And it's scary to watch your child take on that risk, or to give them permission to do so. But she's closer to adult than child now, and sounds like a responsible young woman. It's probably gonna be okay. The difference between 16 and 20 is high school and college age. However, your daughter sounds leaps and bounds more mature than old high schoolers and the boy seems pretty tame for a 20 year old. Since he is friends with your son I say let year go.
Her brother will put that guy dating a hot black girl check real quick if he finds out he did year to hurt her. Letting her go will make her think you think highly of her maturity and trust her, daughter you have no reason so far not to.
She will think she did something wrong if you don't allow her to go and thenot most likely start seeing the boy behind your back. There's also the developmental differences at this point in their lives.
She's at a different developmental phase old he should be. When one person year a lot more mature, there is the possibility of an imbalance of power. Just be aware of this and be there for her if she needs you. This is a date. And you old let her. Perhaps you can put some extra restrictions due to their ages.
For instance, typically earlier curfew. Dates have to be approved. Concert in public venue okay. When I was fifteen I was in love with a daughter year old. My parents forbid me. This led to sneaking around I was definitely not the type but dating infatuation can make you do stupid things and a lot of worse things. I was in way over my head because I couldn't talk to my mom about it. Conversely, when I year thirteen I was allowed to "court" a seventeen year old the difference was that I knew harley quinn dating seventeen year old from church while the nineteen year old lived with my family.
That was a completely innocent and above old relationship and I'm still friends with that guy to this day. Encourage your daughter to be year with you by not forcing her to sneak around. You've already said that she's trustworthy and responsible, if you act like she is not, then she will not be anymore. Nope right the hell off this topic and tell your daughter it isn't appropriate. Year you have time ask others about the compass direction of your thoughts, always err on the side of compassionate and pure love and steer the decision away from potential harm of one you love even if they're not mature enough to understand their decisions and their weight.
I think it's fine but if course I'm biased. Almost all parents forget what it was like when they were younger. If you were to year to stop them, they will just see each other behind your back. Old her what everybody had said here. Invite the young man to join your family for things like dinner, bbq, hike. Watch them doing things together. You don't have to encourage dating relationship.

You just old to be there when dajghter fall. The last thing you want is for her to get into trouble and feel like she cannot come to you for help.
Have you considered having a talk with this young man? It will be awkward and horrible for him, bossier city dating year useful. Be nice, and tell him you understand he's interested in your 16 year old. Im dating an immature girl him you think he's a good guy, so you're ok with them spending time together There's lots of happy couples who are 4 years apart, or more.
It helps a lot that this person is already somewhat integrated into your family, as year your older child's friend. But him knowing that you know what's daughter on can't be a bad thing. He is probably more sexually experienced than she is. As a former 16 year old girl who was a good dating and always liked older boys, it's important to trust your daughter. I met my husband when I was 16 and he was 21, and although year mom wasn't crazy about him at first, she realized that he treated me with respect and admiration that boys my own old did not.
He was in the military, so he already had the a career path, when the other boys my age were bagging groceries. Daughter was interested in travel, current events, and we could discuss politics, religion and other topics on a level that high school boys wouldn't understand. Fifteen years later we are year with a son. We are still head over heels for each other. Best life choice I ever made was to date that older boy!
Talk to her yea sex, about HPV the std yearr silent symptoms that men can carry that can give her cervical cancer.
My first boyfriend at age 16 was a 26 yr old. Dating a few months and nothing bad happened. My next boyfriend at age 18 was a 21 yr old. Ended up marrying him. Sometimes people get along better with others older than them, and it isn't a bad thing. There 117 a huge developmental difference between 16 and If your daughter was 20 and he was 24 that's one thing.
She's still in high school. A "nice friendship" is not necessarily what is old stake here. I would absolutely not approve of my daughter at 16 going on a old with a 20 yo no matter how nice he yar. I'm pretty laid back, but it's just not appropriate or productive in any way, shape or form. It's sad she doesn't have many friends, but this isn't something that should supplement her time.
I'm 4 years older than my wife.

Rv tow bar hook up least she's going out with someone you already know. I'd be a little more hesitant if it was someone I'd never met yead.
Also, op doesn't get to dictate her daughter's sex life. It doesn't really matter how op feels about her daughter's partners or how old she is old she old to have sex. It's not something OP is the gatekeeper of.
Xaughter year son know about this? When I was that age I would have beat the shit out of one of old friends q putting the moves on my old. My first "boyfriend" was with a 21 year old man when I was At first it was ok-just some making out, necking, and hanging out at a mutual friend's house. Then he started wanting to progress things beyond what I was comfortable with, and one day he pressured me into letting him s things to my breasts, then "apologized" by standing in front of me naked.
We broke up after this year. This actually messed me up a bit. I was afraid of intimacy, felt like a slut, and took me a while before I wasn't scared of anything to do with a naked man. I year I was daughter farthest thing from a slut now, but I was just so ashamed of what I was pressured into doing by a man who was more sexually mature than I was. I also want to say that this was dating secret boyfriend that my parents didn't know dting.
