I have been seeing a girl for the last the last 13 weeks. Every time I plan a date she needs to get permission from her Dad. She is 20yrs old by the way and I am 25. Tonight she calls me 20 minutes before our planned date to say that her dad won't let her go out with me tonight. This hurt me a lot. I have never experienced not being trusted before. I also am not allowed to touch her when we are in the company of her parents. I think I have made a good impression with her parents. When I first meet her Dad I shook his hand firmly and looked him in the eye (not returned in kind by the way). I asked him about his company and I spoke about my goals and aspirations for the future, the study I had done in the past, and study I had just completed. I do not see the reason why they do not trust me to take their daughter out. I treat this girl with nothing but respect. I have never made any advances on her with out her instruction. I flat out asked her the first time before I kissed her if that would be ok. Before I entered into the relationship I knew her family was conservative, I was not expecting the to get in the way of our relationship. I have seen this girl grow into an amazing person over the past 13 weeks. It took me 2 weeks to get any answer out of her that was not a sorts, sometimes, maybe, I don't know. She has let me into her world and has shared with me all of her secrets. In her words she has removed her protective shell. I like this girl a lot, but clearly not enough to be asking this question. Would it be fair to her to end our relationship because of the interference of her parents? Signed, one frustrated lover.
