'I'm going out with a guy my dad's age!'

Mar 07, 2013, 00:19 IST | Dear Diana

Dear Diana, I'm 26 and with a well-paying job. The only problem in my life (if you can call it a problem!) is I'm going out with a guy who is just two years younger than my dad!

We came across each other at a social event. Although he’s a divorcee, we instantly clicked if you know what I mean. I don’t know how to go about this with my family who are very orthodox. My friends too are very sceptical about this relationship. We’ve been together for a month now. We’re pretty much in love. What should I do?

Dear Dipti,
You seem to be treading in a zone where it is but natural you will face opposition. Being with a guy almost as old as your dad will raise eyebrows. Your folks will be upset. Think of it in a more rational way. Their biggest fear will be that 10 years down you will be in your mid-30s while he will be battling old age ailments. Are you prepared to be his nurse? Love is blind and all that... right now you may be blinded but before you take the big step, think hard. Best of luck!

Diana will solve it!
