Dear Lady and the Scamp,
I have recently met and fallen for a man who is 30 years older than me (I'm late 20s and he is late 50s) but I haven't told my family about him yet. He already has a family (ex wife and two children). Do you have any tips for telling my family about my new relationship? They are usually quite open-minded but I doubt my mother would be about this. P.S. Said man is not rich which will also be disappointing to them.
Lucky him! The first thing I'd say is that several chaps in their late 50s would literally kill for a chance to bag a 20something. So first off make sure he's not just seeing you to boost his street cred. If he passes all your 'nice bloke' tests, then your family's view is kind of irrelevant. All you can really do is tell them why you think he's great and hope that's enough.
Of course it would be better if they liked him. But you're an adult, so if they don't they'll have to lump it. My mum doesn't approve of lots of things I do, fromRead More »from Should you date an older man?
