They love to cook together in our kitchen and try out new recipes.They [my parents] said he lied, cheated, and I shouldn’t be involved with him. So I thought about what they said and talked to more people.The more people I talked to, nobody wanted us together. Chances are, your parents have more wisdom than you do and it’s a good idea to take their advice. It only shows them you are too immature to be in the relationship they are so worried about.The best thing you can do is to sit down with your parents and calmly, with great respect, ask what it is they don’t like about your bf/gf and what you can do to lessen their fears and objections. They will appreciate your desire to learn from their wisdom and respect their point of view.Another question you could ask them is, “What should my bf/gf do to win your trust? Remember, most of the time they are right and who wants to gamble with the few times they might be wrong, just for the sake of having a bf/gf.They turn on the music and sing, dance, and make a bunch of the healthy-type of food that is so popular today. Interestingly, this young man is aggressive in his desire for me to know him and vice versa.This isn’t at all the new modern type of teenage dating where they hang out in groups and go through levels of “talking.” What’s taking place is a good old fashioned courting process.The young man’s mother did a very good job teaching manners and etiquette to her son.He ate with us at Easter and even brought flowers and a dessert. That said, this is still my daughter we’re talking about and I’m not naïve. No father likes to see his daughter cuddled with a boy.Your parents can help you answer that question without all the emotional fog you are experiencing.Most parents will appreciate a bf/gf who treats you with respect and honesty. If they observe that you are often sad or hurt, those are red flags for them.
