What should I do when my dad doesn't approve of my boyfriend and tells me to break up with him?

My dad found out I had a bf and got angry because he wanted me to tell him not to keep it a secret and when he found out he told me to break up with him or to introduce him to my dad what should I do?

Introduce him to you parents and show them that he's a "nice guy" and he wouldn't hurt you.. Parents are just protective to their daughter. So just talk to then and show them that he's a nice guy.

It is your choice, but your parents have a right to know who you are with. They are responsible for you.

yeah but they can't pick who you love

All you have to do is introduce them. And if it is true love he'll wait until you are 18, and can move out.

true but your family should support you.

Sometimes your family sees things you don't. My niece wouldn't listen to us. She moved in with the loser and ended up being hit. So you should take what they have to say in to consideration.

Try to prove to your Dad that your Bfs a really nice guy. Like talk him up every now and again.

Do whatever your dad says. You'll find out later that your dad was most likely right the whole time. Parents have a way of knowing what's best. :)

You should introduce him to your dad. You should have done that to begin with. That is just basic respect.

Take him home and introduce him to your father. So your father can talk to him and if he does not want to do that then you might want to find someone new. Who can take home and introduce to your parents

He told you not to keep a secret from him and what did you do, you kept a secret from your dad, and now you face the consequences, you have to break up with the boyfriend or introduce him to your father, these are not really difficult decisions, if I was your father I would do the same thing, and then I would take your phone and your computer away from you for a few weeks so that you could think about your actions and your betrayal of trust...... And by the way the reason you didn't tell your father about this boy in the first place was that you know that there's something about him that your father is not going to like...

No it's cuz my dad doesn't really approve of any guy even if it's just a "guy friend" he doesn't want me around him and he gets mad that's why I've never really had the courage to introduce him to anyone

He tries to protect you. He might seem like a bad guy to you right now, but later if they guy wasn't right and ends up being a jerk, you'll thank him later!! :)(:

Well you obviously do not want to lose your boyfriend so the only option you have is to introduce him to your dad. You can only hope for the best. If your dad disapproves try and sit down and talk to him maybe then he will realize how much your boyfriend means to you. But, i hope he approves :) good luck!
