So the relationship is amazing. I never knew feelings like these could exist for another person. But they do, and I love it, and I love him. So now comes the time to tell my parents. I have questioned the timing of when to tell my parents but the worry of "hurting" them seem to be trumped by wanting to share my utter joy and be honest with them.
I am after all an adult.
So the time quickly approches where I share that this guy they know as my friend, is really my boyfriend and I love him.
Do any of you have advice on what to say, where to say it or timing of telling them? This is new to me and I can use some counsel.
Well I told my parents tonight about my boyfriend. It went a little worse than I expected but nothing like the doomsday experience I had planned in the worse case scenario. I guess everything they said was expected, but I had hoped there would be a little more love and acceptance, than persuasion and doubt.
I stood my ground well, defended my feelings and thoughts and desires, and reiterated my points often. But so did they. We ended with me saying I would seriously consider what they said and asked me to do (a test of the BOM of sorts) and me telling them I will continue to see my boyfriend such.
Seriously nothing much else can happen until I move out on my own again. DAMN you college tuition and economy from preventing that right now.
Im to exhausted and tired to go into more depth right now. Sorry.
