18 yr old dating 15 yr old
So, is your relationship with your daughter such that any criticism or even broaching the subject of the older boyfriend will result in a huge blowout?
Is your connection so tenuous that a conversation will push her into total shutdown? You won't be the first parent who feels disconnected from her teenager.
I beseech you — if nothing else — please have your daughter visit a good obstetrician-gynecologist to have a frank discussion about sex and sexuality.
I am imagining your horror at this (given that you are afraid to upset her), but the upset at seeing a doctor will pale in comparison with the upset of an unplanned pregnancy or sexually transmitted infection.
Our goal is to open a real discussion with your daughter.
A 19-year-old man may not be much different from a 16-, 17-, or 18-year-old boy, in terms of maturity.
And if this is the case, you still have a choice between abdicating responsibility (and saying nothing) and taking the full nuclear option of demanding they not see each other.
If your connection with your daughter is strained, start hanging out with her. Do whatever she likes to do (shop, surf the Web, ride bikes, kick soccer balls), and ask her what she likes about the man she's dating, what makes him interesting, and what they have in common.
You may now see our list and photos of women who are in your area and meet your preferences.

I have met this boy several times, and he is very sweet and responsible, working a full-time job and renting an apartment.
