Especially as she gets to call the shots and remind Ben that she's the boss.''

Gen Z Shoppers Ditch Designer Brands For Knockoffs
The NY Post says members of "Generation Z" (born between the mid-1990s and 2010s) have been saving money by leaving brand names behind. Gen Z shoppers, who are also called "Zoomers," have been purchasing everything from fake Balenciaga handbags to knockoff Oreo cookies. They often share their finds on TikTok using the hashtag #dupe. Some fashion designers are reportedly upset that Gen Zers don't value the importance of buying "high quality products." Social media influencer Denise Duran says, "This generation doesn't really care that much about brands. A lot of the younger generation just want the look. There's no shame in the dupe or the knockoff. They wear it with pride and they don't really care."
A friend and I are in a huge fight because I am dating her father. I am 26. He is 52. I met him at the car dealership where I work. I had no idea he was my friend's father because I had not previously met him. She called and was screaming at me when she saw a picture of us on his phone. She is demanding that I break up with him or lose her as a friend. She says it's creepy and disgusting that I'm dating her father and such an older man. I've never dated an older guy before. He treats me like gold and much better than anyone I've ever dated my own age. I don't want to lose my friend, but also don't want to lose my boyfriend. I know I need to make a choice. What would you do if you were me.. boyfriend or BFF?
PS: If it helps, this is not a good friend. Not sure if that matters or not?
