However, you should not exclude the possibility of true love.
Be that as it may, you should know how to act around your father's young sweetheart. Of course, it is really weird when your father's new girlfriend is your age or even younger than you. A lot of issues will inevitably come up, but you will have to deal with them.
The key for you is to start seeing your disadvantages as advantages.
For instance: You're not just divorced - you've proven your ability to commit, over a fifteen year period! You have kids - a lot of women you will date have them too.
by Ron Louis & David Copeland Pay attention, all you horny guys who want to date younger women - this is for you. Here's an email we got recently: Dear Dating gurus, I want to date hot young women, but always fail.
I'm 35, and would love to sleep with girls I see on campus (I live in a college town). Signed, "Clueless" David: Ah, the younger woman..much sought-after babe.
Signed, Confused Dad You're actually much better off than you think.
Your dad is a grown-up man capable of making his own decisions. Maybe the problem is not the girl herself, but what she represents.
If you get to know her better, she might turn out a really great person. But if it is not the case, you will at least know who you are dealing with. If you feel uncomfortable when she starts acting like your step mother or your BFF, you need to let her and your father know. But if their relationship freaks you out so much and makes you act childish, you are not mature enough to have an opinion on the matter.
Don't let your dad force a relationship between you and her if you don't want it. You need to accept that this is who your dad is and you have no right to judge him.
You should also let your father know when he makes you feel uncomfortable by encroaching into your generation. Some young girls want to date older man, but they don't what to know about their past and deal with their children. Be supportive but don't let him put you in uncomfortable situations on a regular basis.
