I understand that my parents love me, and only want the best for me, but it seems like whenever my parents meet whoever I'm with, they judge him by the way he looks, where he's from, and even by the way he greets them. They don't even give them a chance, they just immediately think just the way they dress, or where they come from makes them bad people. Only I know their true side, and I've dated some really cool guys, but my parents just immediately didn't like them, and because of that, it just eventually stopped working. So what do I do when my parents don't like the guy I'm with? Or what can I say or do or show them to make them feel good about who I'm with right off the bat?

You are under 18, rely on your parents judgement, they have a lifetime of experience they are using to protect you and your interests. They don't always have to like who you date, but until you are old enough legally make the decisions for yourself you are going to have to deal with the drama and dislike. Who knows maybe thier age and wisdom and experience tell them that he's not good enough for you, have you gotten a good reason from any of your previous objections? maybe if you tell them you're trying to understand the situation instead of fighting it you'll get somewhere.2
