The other day, out of nowhere, my DH just blurted out that he did not want to get too "attached" or "friendly" with our DD's new BF (together over 2 months) because if it does not work out he did not want to invest in really liking the boy. DH is more of the "old school" parent where he can be really unreasonably strict to a point. He was actually not liking the fact that she had a BF until I sat him down and said at least she told us, would you rather not know who she is with? Anyway the boy has proven to be a pretty good kid in general. Polite. And Nice. Does very very well in academics and sports and family although we have not met formally sounds like good people.
We know this relationship could go either way.. either not work out after HS or actually work out long term. I suppose no one can tell at this point in time.
But I thought it was really funny that he said that because I guess I never thought of it that way... which now makes me a bit sad. DH said that this boy set the bar a little high for our expectations of the kind of boy our DD would go out with... now anyone else will be compared to this one. I said, OMG quit thinking that way , they barely got together you know! LOL!
Wondering if anyone out there are close with the children's BF/GF...
