Dating is disrupted by smoky premises – The Denver Post

Dear Amy: I’m a single dad. For the past six months, I have met a wonderful woman.

I’m 45 and she’s 41. She does not have children herself, but is very close to her brother and two sisters and her young nieces.

They are a very close family. They meet on Sunday.

The problem is that her father is a chronic smoker. He smokes in the house to the point where you can not breathe and I have been left and gasp for air.

I have stopped going over to the house and will not take my own children there. She is well aware of why I do not visit this house and her parents ask where I am and why they never see me.

This causes so much stress between us, as well as some fights.

I was told that it is not an option to talk to his father and ask him to quit smoking.

What to do?

– Non-smoking father

Dear father: No, do not ask this man to quit smoking. It’s his life, his house, and his addiction.

A very simple explanation for why you can not visit this home is that you react severely when you are exposed to smoke, or remnants of it.
