Hey everyone...

Okay, so... Here's my story.
I first met my current boyfriend about 6 years ago... okay, well not MET... more.. "Chatted with"...
You see, we first started talking on ICQ... We had a lot in common and really developed serious feeling for eachother. Since he lived in the same city as me, it got a little bit exciting for me since it was a potential first boyfriend... We talked on the phone and what not, and even met up at a concert (which was SO AMAZING..) but lost touch over the years... until a couple years back, I was still in highschool, when he and I came online at the same time and started talking again.. Sparks FLEW and before we knew it, we had started making plans to hang out when he got back from Vacation (he was out at his cabin for summer). When he got back, we hung out... and it was like love at first sight... I fell in love with him.. he fell in love with me... we've been together for about a year and a half now... The whole story book thing :P

It sounds all nice and what not... but the bad part is... My dad HATES him.. and he HATES my dad...

My boyfriend, at times, hasnt been the nicest to me.... but then again I've been not so nice to him as well... We've had arguments with name calling... though he has never HIT me.. nor has he threatened me... and vice versa (sp?) It's all verbal fighting... Everyone fights. My dad first started disliking him when I was telling him how he reacts with his mother. (He comes from a divorced family... His dad is a drunk and never was a great parent... No rules enforced yadda yadda.) They fight and call eachother names... His mother calls him an ******* and he calls her a ***** (his brother is the same way too)... He wasnt brought up in a stable home environment... but he has a good head on his shoulders...

In the beginning, he didnt treat me as well as I wanted to be treated... but I've told him how much that hurt me and he has since stopped being disrespectful and treats me like gold...

Anyways, my father tells me he doesnt like him because he doesnt have a job and that our future will be crap because he's the laziest person he's ever met and we're going to end up poor and living a crappy life... and because he has friends who deal drugs *he has ONE and he's been friends with him since he was like... in the womb, so they go way back*
He's not even into drugs either.

My father is also self involved... He's very selfish and doesnt care about anyone else... He's threatened my boyfriend many times... Saying "If you take my daugher near any of your drug dealer friends, you'll be sorry" and what not...

Is there anything I can do to get my dad to like my boyfriend? Is there anything I can do to stop them from hating eachother?

It seems hopeless... Any advice??? ANY??

I love my boyfriend so much.. and I hate that dinners together and visits are uncomfortable and awkward....


Thanks so much for your time and I hope that I can get some responses!!!
