| | Older Boyfriend?
I saw another post about an older boyfriend, but every situation is different. One of my younger friends, who is 15, met this 19 year old guy online. He is in the Air Force. I am the only one who knows about it, because I am her oldest friend. I was scared to death when they met in person about 6 months ago. I felt like her mother. I lectured her about everything that could go wrong, and made her promise me that she would stay in a highly populated area and always stay around people for at least the first couple of times they were together. Well, nothing went wrong. He seems like a great guy. In fact, I'm kind of jealous! But he is taking his leave from the Air Force soon, and my friend will need to tell her (widowed) dad, since it will be too hard to keep it from him when they can spend more time together. She keeps asking me how she should tell her dad, and I really don't know what to tell her. I know he'll be unreasonable about it. As soon as he hears that she met a 20 year old guy online, that will be the end of it for him. He probably won't even listen any further. And I would hate to see him try to destroy the relationship. Any advice?
