Thanks for coming to my TED Talk

Today, my father once again sat me and my boyfriend of a year down to have another "talk." These "talks" are always something negative against our relationship, and how it’s not up to his standards. We’ve explained numerous times why he’s wrong. My father is about to make me single. FML

without any details, how are we to know if he has unreasonably expectations, or if you're love is blind to something that he sees, that you cant.

Really hard to tell if he’s being realistic and you guys aren’t or if he’s just being a controlling ass . You haven’t given enough info.

Maybe that’s his goal?

Or maybe he sees warning signs that you are missing and/or defending and he’s trying to protect you. Either way, if you are under 18 or still living at home, he’s going to interfere. If you these are happening on visits, politely excuse yourself and leave if it’s putting a strain on your relationship. Or have your boyfriend do so.

Sometimes, our parents see something that we can't or don't want to see. If your dad is this persistent about the issues he sees, then there may be some validity to his concerns, particularly if they are on major issues. If the concerns are smaller things or those that have already been spoken to and resolved though, you may need to take a firmer stance and remind him that while you appreciate that he cares, the relationship is between you and your boyfriend.
