I have a hard time lying but I've been lying by omission for about 2.5 years from my family that I have a boyfriend. We are engaged and he proposed 2 years ago.
I'm 30 years old and come from a strict muslim middle eastern household. I live with my family b/c I'm not married and that's what is expected. My parents never left me home by myself but they are now oversees for a couple weeks.
I am the oldest but have a brother that is 26 and a sister that is 17. My boyfriend has an interview for a recidency and it's an hour away so they gave him a hotel room. He wants me to come with him overnight.
I told my siblings i was going to a conference but they kept asking me a lot pf details like where it is and what it's about and they told me I have to tell mom and dad. If I dont tell them I know my siblings will.
The issue is I dont think my parents will believe me and my dad hates lying more than anything. He is very hot headed and goes into rages when he is upset so I'm very very nervous they will question me or do something like look the conference up to see if it is legit.
I just dont know if its a good idea... I know my bf really wants me to go and I dont want to let him down but I'm extremely nervous right now... I feel like I'm going to be sick.
I know it may sound absurd that I'm 30 and this is an issue... but middle eastern culture is very very different. by the way, i'm not Muslim but I pretend to so I keep things stable right now... I'm saving money to ge out of the house as soon as my BF and I are able to.
