Dear SWD,

Ah, yes. The law and stuff. As an attorney, I know how big an impact the law and stuff can have on our lives. The fact that you're minimizing that detail
leads me to believe that you know it's significant and serious.

You Know They're Right

Don't kid yourself. You know that's a big deal, and you know your parents are acting reasonably when they're uncomfortable that you're hanging out with him.

I'm not trying to be a jerk (although I fear I may have succeeded nonetheless), but I'm trying to point out just how innocent you sound, SWD. There are some
things you've overlooked that you should consider.

You Don't Know What Real Love Is


But Aaron, 16 is of legal age for sex.

You're both 16.


You say you're in "REAL LOVE." You quite frankly don't know what real love is, SWD. I'm sure you have strong feelings for him.

I know you feel a lot of pressure to justify your decision to sleep with this real winner of a guy. So you're proclaiming to all who will listen that you're in REAL LOVE. Forgive me my skepticism, but I doubt that's what it is.

You Won't Change Your Parents Opinion


Of course they won't change. She won't even get them to see her side of this.

In all likelihood, you're not going to convince your parents to change their opinion of your boyfriend. There are fewer nightmares more terrible for a parent than the one where he hears his daughter is sleeping with a convict.

Figure Out Why You Like Troubled Guys

Are you trying to send them a message? I'm sure they received it. You asked what you can do to change your parents' minds. I'm telling you that it's not likely to happen. If I were in your shoes, I'd take a look at myself and try to figure out why I was interested in troubled guys.
