My daughter has started going out with a 21-year old that she met through a friend's brother. He doesn't have a job so he is over all the time. (we have now limited that to weekends) He doesn't speak well to her and is always complaining about something. His manners are terrible, he never pays when they go out. The only plus is that he lives with his grandparents and doesn't have an apartment. She says she is still a virgin and has offered to be tested by a doctor if we don't believe her. I know from my older daughter that forbidding her to see him doesn't work. It only causes rebellion. How can I discourage her from dating him and encourage her to start to date high school boys (who she says are immature)? My biggest fear is that she won't go to college and will want to marry him when she graduates. Please help.
