Teenager infuriated after learning about dad’s new girlfriend: ‘We are quite literally dating the same age group’

An 18-year-old girl is angry with her 38-year-old father for dating a 22-year-old man.
Her father spent more money than he has on his new girlfriend of just two weeks. She thinks the age difference is "gross" and that her father doesn't make the best decisions. The teen sought advice on the Reddit forum "Relationship Advice."
"My father is not my biological father, but he stepped in and claimed me as his own child," she explained. "He and my mom split up when I was 4 or 5. He hasn't dated anyone since I was 7 or 8. His new girlfriend started working at his job about two months ago and they have officially been together for two weeks.

"We went to different school districts, but I was in my freshman year of high school when she was in her last. When I was born my dad was 20 and she was 4. So gross. Between flowers and jewelry and other random things, he spent over $200 on her in the last two weeks of their date alone. He says she'll be moving in by winter, about eight months from now, even though he's only just met her."
The teenager feels that the father has misplaced his priorities because of the relationship.
"What the hell am I supposed to do?" She said. "I hate being in my own house now because I don't want to meet her let alone interact with her. We also don't have the financial resources to let him spend $100 a week on someone he barely knows. We haven't had a working oven for two years because we can't afford it.
"I'm not mad [that] my dad is in a relationship. I would be happy for him if she were five years older. My own boyfriend is turning 20. We literally meet in the same age group. I don't like her being here all the time because it makes me feel unwelcome, especially since he's been asking me to find other places to be for whole weekends."

"This is gross and weird," commented one user.
"This is gross, and such a big age difference is just wrong," said another.
"Guys like your dad who date very young women don't care about right or wrong. He's not going to change," one person wrote.
