Ok. I think that I am more or less looking for answers from teens and young adults but anyone is welcome to give their answers.
Last summer I met a guy and we became the best of friends. We spent all kinds of time together and everything. In November he asked me if I would be his girlfriend and so I agreed. His parents from that summer until that November treated me like the daughter they never had and we all got along sooo well. Then his parents find out that we are dating and they completely shut him off from life. He is no longer aloud to have and friends or communicate with anyone. They keep him in karate classes and only let him go places with them. They don’t allow him to use the internet, they took away his cell phone, they don’t let him use the house phone, and he can’t even walk outside of his own house unless his parents are with him.
Its really not fair. We used to be able to do everything. We used to go swimming and go to all kinds of church events, retreats, youth groups, vacations… then we’d go and hang out with each others families… we never gave anyone a reason to think we were doing anything wrong. We decided to stay as chaste as possible so he didn’t even kiss me.
But in December his parents just went crazy with all of this nonsense. When he tried to defend himself his parents would tell him that he was stupid and didn’t know what he was talking about. Not to worry about anything and all kinds of other things… We manage to sneak a phone call when we can but its only about 1-2 times a month. I really care about him and feel like he could definitely be the one, I just wish that I knew a way to make this easier for the both of us. I pray very hard about it and offer up my masses for him. It doesn’t help that the Catholic church that they take him too doesn’t know the truth… I go to mass almost everyday and I pray all kinds of prayers, but I wish that there was something else I could do.
We are almost 16 and are both determined that if we have too we will wait until he can leave his parents house and then we can see each other more.
I don’t really know what I’m asking for here, but can someone please just give some opinions on the matter.
In frustration thank you!!
