Dear Dish-It, Should I Just Forget Her?

Advice for teens about long distance relationships and parents.
Advice for Teens About Dating

Dear Dish-It, is here to whisper "ttyl after I've thought about this some more".


Dear Dish-It,

Hey, I'm 15 and in love. But my girl lives about 45 minutes away. My parents don't really like the idea that we met on the internet and they refuse to take me to where she lives. So we barley ever see each other, except for when my sis takes me up there. Is there a way for me to help them understand? Or should I just forget it and let it stay the same?

Dear ez_goer321123,

Although it probably seems like your 'rents are acting like big jerks right now, they've only got your best interests at heart. You've gotta understand that it might take them a while to warm up to the idea of you dating girls in general - let alone dating girls you met on the internet. Your best bet, in this situation, is to sit down with the 'rents and plead your case. Tell them why you think they should drive you to see this girl and why it is you like her in the first place. Offer up some compromises (like seeing if she can come see you one week instead of you always going there) and suggest some extra chores you could do to make up for the time and money it'll cost them to take you to see this girl. You still may not get what you want but at least you can say you tried. And hopefully the 'rents will warm up to the idea of you and this girl seeing each other sooner, rather than later!
