I'm 17, i live in AL, theres this girl i know in OH who ive known for like 4 years (shes 22) ive always liked her and i would almost say that i love her and i know she really likes me to, weve been "going out" (the best you can long distance anyway) for about a year, my parents don't know about her because i doubt they would ever approve of a long distance relationship (there kind of weird that way), I plan to go to college next year so this might be my last chance to see her this summer. I really want to visit her but i don't know what to tell my parents. I doubt they would just go to OH if i randomly asked to go there.Any suggestions?
Most parents are going to feel very doubtful about a Net relationship with someone five years older. Nor would it help just saying you want to go to Ohio, as even if you went, the chances you could arrange a meeting would not be good.I would think that since she would seem to be old enough to travel by herself, she should come and visit you.
Yeah. She should definetly consider coming to see you.If you can't be honest with the parents.. then is this relationship really that important to you? Not to say that it isnt.. but will your parents really over react THAT much?
**wow, I haven't been here in ages, and the first time I come here and read something I read into something that I WENT THROUGH MYSELF! haha. My gf is 4 years older than me and I was once in a situation where I was 18 and she was 22\. The parents didn't know about her at all. Anyways, she flew 1500 miles to see me and we worked things out to see each other (since she was older it was easier for her to see me). It was just about the distance of AL and OH too! haha. Anyways, I ended up telling my family about 6 months later. My dad was ok with it, but my mom didn't like it at all and still doesnt like it to this day. Does that stop me? no, but it sure does make things tough. plus for some reason, my mom really things that older girls should go with older guys, not younger ones :frowning: Anyways, guess I'm just a mature guy who knows how to handle girls :smile:
-hope that helped a little. **
