I’m in love......but!

Hi
I’m 30 single with 2 kids, I am in love with a 23 year old. He told me he loves me. He comes from a Greek family. He says his parents won’t accept me and it’s complicated.
I know I’m stupid for getting involved with someone much younger but my heart is breaking.
Do I give up on us?
Should I just cut it off or could his family accept us, accept my kids?

Never trust someone who says their family is in the way. I've dated people like that it never ends well. If he really likes you he needs to be willing to push past everyones disagreements

You should cut it off! I know it hurts and it's not the age difference that's the big deal here. It's that he says his family won't accept you and it's complicated.
Send him on his way.

I know someone who dated a man from a Greek family, his family were difficult to put it mildly (actually, racist, crazy and interfering would be more accurate).
I'd call it quits. He either lives his life with too much input from his family or it's a bullshit excuse because he's not ready to commit.

If he wanted to be with you, he would be. If he's not even fighting then he's either a coward or hiding behind an excuse as to why he can't fully commit, either way move on and find what you want in a partner and life.

I think if he loved you enough it wouldn't matter what his family thought. I'd end it and find someone who shares the same values in life as you do.

Cut it off. I was with a Greek guy for 6 years and was never accepted. I even learnt to speak Greek but that was still not good enough. That family spoke Greek only, watched Greek movies, ate at Greek restaurants, mixed with only Greek people. Ughhh totally thought they were better than anyone else because “Greeks do it better” 😂 Find yourself a nice Aussie man 👍🏻
