Ok, so I've been talking with my current bf for a year now. I met him online and after 2 months of talking with him, my mom decided to move after she got divorced from my dad. The catch is i live an 1hr away from my bf. And I've only seen him 3 times (chaperoned). I feel like we need some privacy, but i don't even get to see him because everytime we make a date his parents suddenly tell him no. Which leaves me dressed and alone again. Breaking up with him is not the answer for me, I don't know what else to do. We talk over the internet every night because he doesnt have a phone either...so...its not easy.

Azrael: do you have any idea what the deal is in terms of what's going on with his parents? Does he know why this keeps happening? have he and his parents talked together about him dating and made any kind of agreements around it?

He doesn't get along with his parents, they've been having trouble for years now. They think of him as a rebel. I've talked to him, about it but he always says his dad has it against him. As for the last question im not sure...

Hi Azrael! Welcome to the boards. [Smile]

You say breaking up in not the answer of you - can I ask why? While relationships where you don't get to physically see your partner often can certainly work, I'm hearing that you're finding it upsetting. Too, cancelling at short notice (however much it may not be his fault) isn't something that sounds super fun for you to put up with.

I want to link you an awesome article we have here about making long-distance relationships as awesome as possible:
Going the Distance: A Few Thoughts on Long-Distance-Relationships
I especially like Joey's idea in that article about sending neat little care packages to each other. And don't get me wrong, I think LDRs can be awesome, I'm in a fantastic one myself. [Smile]

I love him too much, I've never felt this way about a guy in my (short lived) life. It may not be fun always but I'm willing to put up with it for us. I've done it for a year, we've had our discussions about it and all...we don't want to let go unless the other one wants to.
