If you feel like you have to choose between your parents and a girl that you like or even love, you should consider trying to make things work between the two parties.
Whatever it may be that could be causing the friction between your parents and this girl may be able to get resolved.
Sometimes, we give up so easily when there is a misunderstanding in our relationships.
Parents don’t always like the person that their child is dating.
This is a fact of life.
It has been happening for centuries.
It is unlikely that these misunderstandings will ever become obsolete.
However, there is no reason why they can’t be brought to a middle ground.
This girl that you like or love may have some qualities and details about her that your parents may actually like but have not been made aware of.
Consider that for a second.
Is there something about this girl that you haven’t revealed to your parents?
There may be something that your parents can find some common ground with.
This, in turn, may allow them to feel better about you dating this girl.
It’s about finding some common ground primarily.
You need to work on this.
It could be a belief system that she has or even something that occurred in her past.
If you think that there is nothing, keep trying.
You are simply giving up too easily.
How about the people in her life?
Can you see any similarities between one of her relatives and one of your parents?
It could be a hobby that they both share for example.
Think carefully about this.
The point here is that you shouldn’t surrender yourself to having to choose between your parents and a girl.
If you work hard to find some common ground between your parents and this girl, you may be shocked at the similarities you may discover.
This is where you have to put on your hat of courage and refuse to give up.
Keep trying to find common ground and you will not have to choose.
That is your best path forward.
It is always beneficial to have a good balance between time spent with your parents and time spent with a girl.
You don’t have to choose between them.
In fact, your relationship is best served when you are able to appreciate your time with both.
There is so much that you can learn from your parents that can even help you in your relationship with this girl.
Your parents have clearly been there when it comes to relationships.
So, you may be able to watch how they interact and observe how they listen to one another in order to know how to go about interacting with this girl in an even better way.
