    My 28 year old daughter doesn’t approve of my girlfriend who is only 4 years old

    I met this amazing woman on this website called Loveme. 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 rea

    I can totally understand how your daughter feels, it is only normal. I am guessing that she is saying that this girlfriend of yours can almost be your daughter or perhaps one of her friends and I’d probably feel the same. This is a sticky situation because you don’t want to lose your daughter over a woman that MAY be a temporary person in your life. Have you and this lady met in person before? The best thing to do is have a separate conversation with your daughter and then bring the two of them together to meet at a later date. If your daughter still feels uncomfortable you may want to reconsider but at the end of the date, your daughter is not a teenager or toddler that you’d have to consider how she feels, she’s an adult so do as you please.

    I probably should talk to the filipina wives of my friends but it seems to be rude. Do you think it is a great idea to try online dating and ask her if she expects for me to pay for her family if we marry? Or is it too rude? Please advice. Thanks in advance

    If she’s Filipina, she probably will be expected to, especially if her family is large and she’s one of the youngest. It’s possible that you won’t get an honest answer even if you ask her directly. The thing to remember is, a Filipina’s status within her family (and this is important to them) rises greatly when she starts contributing money rather than being an expense, which is why you see so many of them working in the Middle East or other countries in Southeast Asia in childcare or as maids when they are qualified for better work, even professional jobs.
    I think this is something you should address with them, but it’s better to get a Filipina’s advice as to how to do it politely and to have the best chance of deriving an accurate answer from her.

    This shouldn’t been hard for you to figure out. She’s 4 and she’s a part of you.
