    Oh and Cass, you go girl! You are a tough cookie. And a smart one too.

    I met my partner when i was 18. Loveliest guy, my family adore him. This month will be our 5 year anniversary.

    Whilst i am absolutely happy, and could not imagine life without him, i wish i had met him a little later in life. I feel as though i have given up so much life experience in exchange for love. I honestly can say, if anything happened between us i would have no idea of how to look after myself. He does everything! Cooks (i do not know how to cook for the life of me unless you can fry it, or put it in the microwave), cleans, sets up our bill payments, makes sure everything is paid on time etc. I wish i had learnt to look after myself, i've never had to - he's like my second mother. LOL

    I left the Navy within 7 months of us dating - i couldn't bear to be without him. Imagined what i could have achieved and experienced if i had stayed. I missed out on the "uni experience" that most of my friends had, a time to make mistakes, learn from them & grow up. It was an important milestone i feel i have missed because i would rather be around my boyfriend 24/7, not to mention losing a few friends over never being able to make time for them - what can i say, i was infatuated.

    If i was you i would just let her be, leave her to experience life (and yes that does mean the "clubbing" phase). That's time she will never be able to get back, there is plenty of time for love later. Whilst i found my perfect man at an early age, i wish i had met him just a little later on

    I agree with letting her make her own decisions. If my boyfriend had of listened to his parents when he was 16 and they were telling him to break up with me we wouldn't still be together nearly 8 years later. We were both young but knew it was something different to what we'd had with others. While its hard to let go you have to let her live her life how she wants. My mum never stopped me from doing anything (with limits of course) and she is now one of my best friends. The last thing you want is to push her away when all you want to do is help. I've seen it happen plenty of times.

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    Lol I know how you feel about missing out on things! I feel that all the time. But still wouldn't change it now! Lol I also lost a lot of friends! But now have some great ones I just wish I had travelled!

    Parents that interfere tend to miss out compared to parents that support. If you interfere and drive away guys just b/c they don't look right or you don't think they are right, well, she wont be bringing around the next *special* one to meet you! It's the same story all the time - she'll end up seeing some guy on the sly so she'll feel free to make her own judgements and see how the relationship develops without the pressure from you.

    God i dated some terribly unattractive, weedy guys when i was younger - but they all had hearts of gold. They were much nicer to be with than the good-lookers who were more concerned with themselves than anyone else.

    Kuri, like you, I met mine at 18 and we have been together 14 years now and our baby (not such a baby anymore) was born when I was 19. I have never been an adult without responsibilities LOL. Man I cant wait to have a grown kid when I am 37 LMAO

    Lucky Lady, I agree with everyone else but I dont bother trying to put it in a nice way. butt out.

    Who your daughter likes is her business. Its not for you to say what kind of guy you want her to be with. It is for her to decide what kind of guy and it sounds to me like she goes for personaility all the way. If I were oyu, I would be proud of her.

    I have a hot man (literally, I cant take him anywhere coz all the women stare and fawn all over him) and hes a wanker quite frankly (love him to bits though).

    I have to admit though, mine is not a wanker about his looks...I dont thin he realises he is hot. But a wanker is still a wanker. Lucky for him he is a funny wanker LOL
