My 28 year old daughter doesn’t approve of my girlfriend who is only 4 years older than her
I met this amazing woman her name is Yulia, she’s from the Ukraine, and everything about her is just great. She’s so smart and funny, and we just connect on so many levels.
I’ll be the first to admit that we have a significant age gap I’m 59, and she’s only 33 years old. But the age gap has never been an issue. We’ve always been upfront with each other. We had been dating for almost 18 months before I decided to introduce her to my family. I have 3 kids, the 2 sons and 1 daughter.
My eldest daughter is 28 years old, she’s never really been open to the idea of me dating someone who’s only a few years older than her. My two sons, 25 and 23, don’t really mind, they’ve actually been pretty supportive.
I’m starting to seriously consider proposing to Yulia. I want my entire family to support the two of us. I’m asking if there’s anything I can do to make the two of them get along? Even though my daughter has her own place, she comes over fairly often, I really want us all to get along. Do you have any advice or suggestions on what I can do about this situation? I’d really appreciate it.
Tough to say bc I do not have children. Im speculating but Yulia may be giving off a subtle vibe to your daughter that you may not be able to see. Sort of like, "don't fuck with me". Women can be very catty. Ask your daughter if there is anything she does not like about Yulia. Listen to her. If she can't come up with anything that's real then I think you know the answer from there. You need to explain to your daughter how you feel about Yulia and that she means a lot to you etc. etc.
^That's actually solid advice
I'm a young ass dude and dont have any experience in this whatsoever lol but yea if your daughter doesn't like her then there might be something there to think about before you get into a serious committment like that.
