    Okay so I’m 14 and my parents told me to talk to them when I’m ready to start dating, but this boy at my school that I really like asked me out so I said Yes.I barely told my Mom about him 2 weeks later and she was OK with it,but once it was time to tell my Dad he said “do u think it’s OK to have a bf”and I said Yes I think it’s OK.They told me they’re not gonna make me break up with him because when they were younger and started dating their parents told them to break up and they didn’t they just told people they did.But the boy I’m dating is 15 and I think he’s nice,mature,and kind he makes me so HAPPY,he’s the one to always bring me up when I feel down,he’s my bestfriend

    I’m 14 going out 15. So my mom just found out a few days ago that I have a boyfriend and she seemed totally fine with it but the only problem is that she won’t let me go out with him. She thinks I’m too young to be dating and that I’ll probably get raped or something but my boyfriend isn’t like that at all! Please help

    I’m 14 and my parents think almost every guy I talk to is my boyfriend

  • Swanky Anon

    so I’m fifteen, almost sixteen, and my parents still don’t want me dating. They said years ago that I could once I was in high school, but now they say no because of what I want for my future. The other day, a guy I really like told me he liked me, but I’m worried my parents won’t let me date him. He is intelligent, kind, funny, & responsible, but I’m worried my parents still won’t understand. I’m also very mature for my age. Any ideas on what to do, because I’m completely lost?

    I’m turning fifteen and my mom doesn’t even let me outside to hang with friends. I have two main friends that live near (a whole lot live near my school, far) but they have lives and it sucks. I’m just confused. It’s not like I am doing what she was doing at thirteen!

      Tell me about it I’m 14 and my moms the same way. She wouldn’t even let me go to the school carnival or homecoming game with my friends :/ and she told me to wait till I’m 17 to date because that when she dated my dad and it sucks. Especially when you see all your friends and their boyfriends together at school and you’re just there like a loner .

    I’m 14 and I’m not even allowed allowed to have a guy as a friend :( I hate it when my parents say I’m too young because it’s not like I’m going to get pregnant! I literally want to go to the movies and have some fun. You’re only young once!

    I’m 13 n my mom won’t let me have a boyfriend. I asked her and she thinks I’m not responsible enough for one. What do you think??

    • Betty

      Breshana, when your 13 you truly haven’t matured. This does not mean that you are reckless or foolish it just means you are not prepared for some things. If you act responsible with the decision you made she will see that you are mature. I would wait another year or two so your mom can see that you are not a child anymore. You acted responsible with her decision and now are ready to take the responsibility of a relationship. Good Luck!

    My mom wont let me have a boyfriend i think that because of her pass & she ended up pregnant , but my auntie says she should at least let me have one at the age of 14 which is in two more months because at that age my mom use to sneak & go see her boyfriends but at the same time my sister is 16 & just now able to date but i guess um going to give y’all the update in 2 more months when i turn 14 !!
