Telling my parents

Here is the story... I have been dating a guy for a year now. I met him in college through my roommate. He is from a different country (different race), and he is 10 years older than me. I am in college and this is my first boyfriend (I know, sad). But I honestly know he is the one for me. He is my best friend, he respects me, and loves me for me. The problem is that I haven't told my parents yet. Every time I've gone home from college they've asked me if I have a boyfriend and each time I've denied it. I should also mention I'm the only child, so I feel a lot of pressure in pleasing them. I've asked them if they'd be ok with me dating another race and I think they'd be ok with it. And I think they would love him once they finally meet him. So I guess I think they'll eventually accept the relationship...it's just I feel bad for lying so long and don't really know how to tell them since it's my first boyfriend. I feel they'll hate that I denied it and wonder why I kept it from them. But I wanted to tell them when I was ready not when they were.... And now my boyfriend has traveled back to his country for three months so they still won't be able to meet him :( Just really worried about their reaction...help??

Hi THAT1GIRL2000, Hope all is well. I wanted to reach you to you. You should be honest with your parents about this relationship if it is moving into something serious. Honesty is the best policy. Guilt will take over if you have this lingering for a longer period of time. You should not have fear take over. You deserve happiness. :) Email me and let me know how it goes! Good luck! -A Stunning ME!, Life Coach [e-mail address removed]

Start by showing pictures of you and him with other friends in a group. Then tell them about just him. Ease all this into your conversation about him and how much you like him. He is gone for 3 months. A lot can happen in that time. It would be nice if you dated other guys, too. To call him "the one" is not allowing yourself to see other guys and get some experience withe other men.
