Why can’t my parents understand that having a boyfriend at a young age is ok. And I’m not even young. I’m 15 years of age - completely old and responsible enough. I understand that it’s unusual for them since they grew up in a generation where having a relationship at a minor age is rare and uncommon. And I’m aware of the fact that they’re just being protective.
But shouldn’t they have a little more trust in me? Their worries? I’m gonna get either raped,cheated on and most importantly my grades are going to drop. I can be responsible when it’s necessary. I’m a conservative girl. I know my limits. I know what is right and what is wrong in a relationship. I’m a highly ambitious person therefore my grades aren’t going to get any lower than an A. He isn’t going to take advantage of me in any way. He isn’t gonna harm me or even rape me. We are old enough to be in a serious relationship.
It’s just not fair. Especially as I have a brother whom they completely allow to have a girlfriend. When they found out he had a girlfriend, they didn’t say a word and just let it pass like a prevailing wind. But when they found out I had a boyfriend, they. went. nuts. Completely nuts. Stereotyping.
I’ve managed to keep it a secret from them for nearly 15 months now. And I ain’t gonna stop. I just wish soon enough, my parents will understand me.
