How about if you could not see your parents upset? And you know they care about you and do not want you to be lonely in the future? Not what you're looking for?

Are you asking as the 20yo? If you have feelings for him enter it.
If you don't, don't. Your parents think dating someone will make you happy. It's entirely up to you.
It might make you happy, it might not. Give it a go. Report 1 year ago 5. From your post, I am assuming that you are not of traditional British culture. However, I do know that it isn't that simple in other cultures, as there is much more heavy parental involvement in partner choice. It is not the age gap that is the problem here. Six years is very little really, when you are both adults. The problem is whether you actually like this man or not. Don't allow yourself to be forced closer to someone to please others.
You are 20 years old. I didn't get with my current partner until I was 27, and this is the first time I actually think I might have found the person I want to settle down with. There is no rush. Heck, if you never find a partner it doesn't matter. Life isn't all about that! Report 1 year ago 6. Report 1 year ago 7. The age gap is not the issue. The most important things is whether the two people are interested in dating each other and if they are compatible.
If you are open to dating the guy, that's fine. If not, also fine. But don't feel obligated to date someone because its what your parents want or waste his time when you have no interest in getting to know him. Report Thread starter 1 year ago 8. Thank you for your posts.
And yes I am the 20 year old but I'm gay and my family are in denial and my family have given me until the end of this year when I turn 21 to find someone they do not want me to be lonely.
