This maybe long and I’m sorry. I have been having issues my parents for the longest time about my boyfriend. We have been dating for about four years and we have been through so much together. The problem is that my parents restrict me in seeing him often and blame him for my own faults.
I’ve also given up my virginity to him, and when my parents suspected that it may have happened, my father was ready to hurt me. I had to lie because I know they wouldn’t be able to handle the truth very well. I also know that I shouldn’t have lied and I’ll have to tell them eventually, but not right now. My parents also believe that he’s a distraction but I’ve maintained my grades with A’s and B’s. We are also taking many precautions before doing stuff together. Nothing I say seems to get across to them, I’m an adult and I believe that I’m making the best possible decisions that I can. Maybe I’m wrong? Can I have insight please?
One thought on ““I have to lie to my parents about my boyfriend””
I think this may be too much for strangers on the internet to handle. If you are still in high school talk to your school counselor about your options. If your father physically attacks you or you feel that he might call the police. If you are over 18 in the US and can move out, get a job and do so. As long as your parents are paying for anything they get a say.
