I am almost 15 years old and my parents will not let me have a boyfriend, no matter what i do or say. I really like this guy and he likes me a lot too, but my parents are being jerks about the whole thing. What do i do?

What you can do is understand that your parents are trying to do what's best for you.

Sneaking out, lying, those things all make for a very bad situation.

Perhaps proving to your parents that you are a responsible individual would be the first step to being allowed to date.

Yes i understand what you mean but if they care about me and what i do, why are they grounding me for liking a guy. It is hormones its going to happen sometime

Well, my mom is really cool about all this relationship stuff, but her one condition is that she knows the guy I'm going out with.

In your situation I would probably tell my more approachable parent that I have feelings for a guy, and I really would appreciate it if they (rents) would meet my boyfriend before they voted yea or nay. Bring the boy over for dinner, make him wear a tie and not spike his hair. Try to make sure things are pleasant, relaxed, open. Make sure everyone likes each other. Once your parents get to know the guy they might be more open to the idea of you going out with him. If they still need more persuasion, assure your parents you'll only go out with him on group dates. After they get comfortable with that, ease them into the idea of solo dates. Time consuming yes, but no doubt worth it in the end. Thats how I wormed my way into the social stratosphere. Give it a go, and see how it works out.
