I Like Him but my Dad Disapproves!

So there is this guy that my father and I have talked about before, and he
told me if I ever dated him, or anyone like him, he would "disown me". Over
the past few months I have been talking to this guy more and I'm starting to
really like him, and he likes me too. I just don't know what to do because
I'm still somewhat young and I wouldn't want my dad to be against me for any reason, yet I REALLY like this kid, a lot. Pleaseeee help!

Not sure what to do!

Wendy's advice

You haven't given me many specifics here, so I can't be completely sure of your age or what your father's issue is with this boy. It sounds to me like you're pretty young, and if that's the case, you won't want to hear this, but you may be too young and inexperienced to make wise relationship decisions. You need to take a step back and look at this boy objectively. Does your father have a valid point? Unfortunately, even if he doesn't, if you're still living under your father's roof, you do need to follow his rules. If this relationship is meant to be, waiting until you are old enough to make your own living and your own rules won't do you any harm.
