I have a serious boyfriend of almost 5 years, but due to a couple of nasty breakups in the past my parents are not his biggest fans. I want to get married and have children and a family, but without their acceptance I'm not sure how that will ever happen. If it weren't for this, I would have no doubts about our relationship.
There is a guy I just recently met that I find myself slightly attracted to, however we met through our parents. It isn't a "set up" but it still kind of felt like one. I would really like to hang out and talk with him without our parents there, if for nothing else but to get to know him better. The problem is I'm assuming he knows about my boyfriend and is afraid to contact me because of it. I don't want to be forward but I really want to talk to him. He has quite the relationship history as well for the little bit I've heard and I really want to know more. Any advice?

Break up with your current boyfriend. The fact that you are interested in pursuing another person whether it be romantic or not means that part of you is not fully committed to your boyfriend. It is unfair to have someone when they deserve your full attention. You've stated your doubts for long term prospects and the acceptance seems to be an issue and something you yearn for. You will always have those issues. It is probably better for your boyfriend to not always feel like he doesn't measure up to your family's standards and find someone who is crazy about him. If a woman is 100% crazy about a person, she doesn't even see other men. Part of you is interested.0
