OK. U prolly dont get questions like this but here goes anyway!! So I'm 17yrs old. A couple of months ago (Aug. '05) I started talkin to this guy (Nick). We were hooked up and sent on a blind date by two mutual friends. Well, he was 21 and when I told my mom she told me that she didnt have a problem with it. Well, we liked each other and we hung out for bout a month. Then I found out he was a liar and so I told him we needed to just be friends and not hang out anymore.
Well, the next month the two friends tried again. Sent me out again on another blind date with one of their friends. But I had known him previously. His name was Adam. He was also 21 and my mother didnt have a problem with that one either! Well, one nite he called me and told me that we just needed to be friends and that he was going to start seeing his EX again. Well, I was a little upset b/c I did really like him. Well I was determined to get answers. So, I got his bestfriends number (Donald) and called him. We talked for about 2 1/2 hours that night. He told me he'd call me in the morning to see how I was...
Well he did call me that morning. And the next and the next. It turned into we were talking everyday and seeing each other everyday and we weren't talkin bout Adam. Then the problem started...
Well, I hang out at the local Fire Dept b/c 95% of the people there I grew up with and I'm pretty good friends with. Some of them are like brothers to me. Well my real brother is in that fire dept and got jealous one nite b/c he seen that my truck was there. Well he called my mom and wined to her and got it so that I cant go back up there any more and her reason is b/c I'm too young to be hanging out up there with a bunch of twenty year olds.
Well, Donald is 21 also, and she is throwing a hissy fit. We've been talking and seeing each other in secret since Oct. '05. I was 16 at the time and I just turned 17 (Dec. 17) Well, when I ask her why I cant see him she just says "He's too old for you" and when I say "Well Nick and Adam were the same age, actually both of them were 3months older than Donald, and you didnt have a problem with them being 21" she just changes the subject and when I continue to ask her she continues to give me the same answer. Well, Donald has a very good reputation so it cant be because he has a bad reputation (b/c thats what mom bases all her decisions on when it comes to me dating sumbody) What Donald and I have decided to do now is just keep everything a secret till I'm 18 (which is NEXT December 17) and then tell her b/c once I'm 18 I'm legal and she cant stop me from being with him.
So my question is this, what would you do?? How would you handle this and what is the best way to handle this situation? I just dont understand why she wont give me a reason on why she doesnt want me with him other than "he's too old"
