You say, "He is exactly the kind of man I have always wanted to marry." But please recognize that all those miserable people out there who married the wrong guy knew at some point that he was exactly what they had always wanted. Your father probably understands this and loves you too much to sit back and let this be one of those mistakes he lets you make. So: How old are you? How many deep and loving relationships have you experienced? What makes this one so special?
If you don't know heart and soul that you are "in love" then you are not. This doesn't mean you can't build a great life together. But you are clearly young so there's no point committing to the effort. A soul mate may come along, a soul mate may not. The only certainty is exactly what Janna says: Make no decisions in fear. Instead, make decisions in love. In other words, if one of you finds other people attractive, then as an act of love the other one can encourage the exploration. If you truly care for each other, and are mature enough to handle the emotions, then you will be happy when your friend is happy. Discard ego, and follow your heart.
Funny. My kids are 20-ish and I am definitely less conservative than them. But I'm not sure they know that, hence these kids interviewed might not know their parents either. Their parents grew up in the 60s and 70s so you never know.
My mom (83) would totally dig Burning Man. My father (85) would only find it kind of pointless. Of course, the trip would kill them.
Where would I never taken them? Anywhere that tolerates people who think "gangster" as adjective is a compliment.
Where / when at Burning Man? Either I missed them, or I was oblivious, or both!
Maybe I'm mildly Asperger's but I couldn't help noticing the misspellings and comma misuse in this article. Does no one edit anymore?
Also, we are told "Dr. Solomon became hostile and terse" when asked about non-pharmaceutical alternatives, with no follow-up as to why or how the interview was resolved.
That said, Asperger's is an interesting phenomenon and awareness certainly needs to be raised. So many people classified in negative terms would be happier and more productive if their loved ones are given tools and a little awareness.
