Talkin’ with Thonny – Worried Girlfriend

Dear Thonny,

My boyfriend recently introduced me to his parents and he expects to meet mine soon, but I never mentioned that I have a boyfriend to my parents. I don’t think they will like the idea of me dating. What should I do? I don’t want my parents to ruin my relationship.

Dear worried girlfriend,

I feel really bad for you because the position you are in is very unfortunate. One of my main suggestions, as risky as it seems, is to just come clean to your parents. It’s better late than never.

Don’t let the fear of your relationship breaking keep you from being honest with them.

Your boyfriend seems to like you a lot if he introduced you to his parents. Explain your situation to him.

If your parents love you and want you to be happy, they’ll come around the idea of you dating even if they’re mad at first.

If they decide to not be reasonable and make you break up with your boyfriend, then just wait until you’re eighteen. By that time, you can do whatever you want.
