I have a small handful of people I talk to online, mostly just friends, but I do have a current love interest I've been talking to on chat and Skype for a while.
I've never tried to meet up with anyone yet, and I'm selective with the people I do associate with online. But for some reason, my mom and sister think that all people online are creepers or perverted old men/rapists. They also think I'm dumb, very "lonely" or "desperate for a relationship" and that those are the reasons I talk to people online. I just do it because it's an easy way to meet people, and I don't intend to meet every single person online in real life. Most of my online contacts are hours or countries away!
How can I get my mom and sister (who is younger than me and extremely nosy and possessive of me, by the way) to back off? I'm an adult, and I believe I should have my own social or dating life as I see fit as long as I'm smart and careful about it.

Well try to be a bit more outgoing, get some friends you can really hang with and talk to so you don't spend all your time alone online, then maybe they will back off. If that doesn't work, try telling exactly that your an adult, you make your own decisions and will make friends however you please0
