I've been with my boyfriend for almost a year now... we met online and he flew out to see me back in October. We have only seen each other once since actually meeting
Background on me he's from the states and I'm originally from the middle east. When he came down to see me he met my mother but not my father... The reason being is due to how our culture thinks about dating boyfriends etc... as well as my relationship with my father. Him and I don't really agree on things so it makes it harder to tell him things
Anyways he had planned for him to come down here again in August and today he asked me when I'm telling my father... I told him I will soon enough he then went on to say that he won't be coming until I tell my father about him
I understand that he really wants to meet him and it would make stuff easier on us but hearing him say that makes it a bit over whelming on me and I feel slightly pressured and that I don't know when I would see him next...

Okay, im evil... i'd just issue a warning, and then sit back and watch the chaos happen... i mean, between the culture about dating, the fact that you met online, and he is leaving the States... I'd sit back and watch this.
Thats like my girl wanting to meet my mom, i'd do the same thing, she might think its all fine and dandy... until something blows up. i'd just take cover before.0

Yeah, long distance relationships suck, Im glad I got out of my one, anyway, my boyfriend used to do the same with me (the ldr one), he was always on about why he couldn't meet my family and stuff, and if I was embarrased that he was my boyfriend, he wouldn't understand that it was a very complicated position for me, until one day he gave me an ultimatum and said he would break up with me if I didn't in some period of time, I just couldn't so when the time came I just talked to him about it, I think other people talk to him about it too, some friends of his, and he finally understood how overwhelming all of that was for me, and he apologized and said he'd support me no matter what and that I should take my time, though I know deep down he never got past it and that he always thought I was trying to hid him like if I was embarrased, which wasn't the case, we ended breaking up because of too many things, you can just try talking to him about it but if he doesn't realize by himself, I don't think anything would make him realize, good luck though!0
