Besides, ordering your daughter not to date this guy probably won’t stop her. If you want to protect your daughter, you need to approach the situation differently.
You have three things to consider: the guy, outside sources and your daughter in order to assess whether the relationship is dangerous for her, while still giving her the space she needs.

What do you think - can she and her boyfriend be happy together?
you are both legal and old enough to know what you want..
And it's not like your a scary old man either, 21 isn't far away from a 17 year old .
