Help me please
I'm a 33 year old physically disabled woman who needs help with most things. I live at home with my parents who are very over protective of me. I have no brothers and sisters, and not many friends. The thing is I met this wonderful guy online 5 years ago and we get on like a house on fire. Mum and dad don't approve of him, I try and tell them how I feel about this guy and they just get angry with me. I've met this guy in secret a few times with a friend, he's soooooooo lovely and I know he's the one for me. He even came to my house once to talk to mum and dad to try and make them realise we are in love and want to be together, but it did no good at all, they never mention him or anything. I really don't know what to do anymore, it feels like cos i'm disabled i'm not allowed to have a relationship like other people. This guy means everything to me, and i'm scared of loosing him. He's very understanding and supportive of me. Someone please help me!!!!!!!!!!
Time for mom and dad to let their child grow up! Their daughter has a need for companionship and wants to be treated like an adult.
You may have moved a little too fast for them by telling them you are "in love" with a guy you met on line.
Continue to meet your new man and get to know him in person. Start out as friends and see where it goes from there. If you still feel the same way, THEN start bringing him around the house for lunch or to watch TV.
Your parents have an opportunity to ADD to the family, not to lose you. Remind them of that.
hi dear.......dont be sad, it mayb like in yr parents mind tht they r not sure abt tht guy u r in love with....moreover thry r yr parents rite...they will nevr think wrong abt u..as they are over protecting u sit and talk with them....if u can invite that guy at yr place for a lonch or dinner...involve him with yr family functions and parties....see to it tht they comminucate well with him.....thing thing apples to both of them...if u realy think tht yr guy is goin to support u and love u lifetime....discuss abt this with him....dont hide this relationship...since the relationship is so long u ppl will be in ease with each other....yr main motive should be making yr praents and tht guy comfortable with each other.....the main problem is lying with communication...u see there is a barrier betwn u n yr parents..make them understad tht this guy will take care of u just as they take care and are conserned abt u.
wish u all the best do tell me if i can help u further.....god bless u. tc
