Seriously??? That is seriously messed up if your Dad is saying that about your relationship but all gung ho about your brother’s wedding to someone he has dated a year. Is there some bad blood between him and your Dad? Or are you the only daughter? Maybe he just doesn’t want to face “losing” his baby girl. But yeah, that would seriously piss me off!

Wow, that would really offend me if my dad said that (He has said similar things before and I got really upset). I’m glad you’re not letting it bother you.
And, I can totally relate about being the youngest child and your parents not believing that yes, in fact, you are a grown up now.

My parents took a REALLY long time to get used to the idea of my SO. I think it’s because I was their oldest and they couldn’t get out of their heads the idea of me being their baby…that was until my little sisters Boyfriend or Best Friend came on the scene. My dad hated him with a PASSION and then my SO was the best thing since sliced bread 🙂

I wouldn’t take any notice of it, perhaps it is their way to say “you should be the one getting married” – it sucks but I’m sure they are not saying these things to hurt you, just a reminder they want you to get married too! 🙂

Some people don’t understand how two people can be together for that long without getting married and still be in a happy relationship. Everyone goes at their own pace- I personally can’t understand people who get engaged within the first year of dating because I wanted more time to develop our relationship, but those same people could turn around and say “But why didn’t you just ‘know’? We did”

What I’m saying is, your dad is probably of the mindset that until your SO proposes and you get married, you technically *could* break up, and that it’s weird you’re not engaged after all this time. It doesn’t mean either of you want to break up, but he probably doesn’t see it as a fully serious commitment b/c SO hasn’t proposed yet.
