My boyfriend and I officially have been together for a little less than nine months. Within the last month, my boyfriend keeps bringing up that he'd like me to sleep over. Although I am a legal adult, I still live with my parents & they do not want me to sleep over at boys' houses.
I have not officially brought up to my parents that he wants me to sleep over because they have hinted multiple times that this is not permitted while living in their house. I have told my boyfriend this and he says he understands, he just wishes it could happen.
I do not want to start a fight with my parents over something that my boyfriend wants more than I do. However, I am slightly afraid that my boyfriend will get tired of me not being able to sleep over and will leave me for an older girl that can. (My boyfriend and I are four years apart and he was once in a four year relationship, where he lived with his girlfriend.)
What should I do? Should I worry or is it all in my head?

Well this is a tough situation. I am assuming you have already been intimate with him, and this is not relating to that he really wants that to happen for the first time, and just that he maybe wants to be able to do it at his place and stay over and have all the benefits of that, and maybe move the relationship to a more serious level. If you are still living with your parents but are an adult you want to be able to have your independence, but you are sort of at their mercy when it comes to house rules, since you live there. You can bring it up and ask your parents, but if they say no, I would tell your boyfriend that sorry you cannot do it at this time. If he really is into you he won't leave you just because you can't stay over once and awhile, he knew what he was getting into with a girl 4 years younger1
