How can I get my parents to be open to the idea of me dating?

I'm a freshman in high school and I've been asked out a couple times this year, and in previous years. I've tried secretly dating but I have a brother in my school who'd tell my parents. The point is I like a guy and he told me that he wanted to ask me out. He's a year older and I didn't want him to think I was a loser who couldn't date because their parents don't approve. Does anyone have any ideas on how to make my parents more open to the idea of me dating?

  • wait a couple years, you're still really young. no need to rush things.

  • I assume your gay, because you have a male anonymous face and are interested in boys. Maybe they would accept you dating a girl? You should come out to your parents if that's the case. I'm just assuming here.

  • Dating is overrated.
    Just wait a few more years, they'll be plenty of time for you to drop boys left and right for the foreseeable future.
