last weekend I was on a date with my boyfriend, and my dad's best friend walked in and said hello to me. My dad didn't know I was dating until his best friend asked him about the guy I was out with.
Now My dad is demanding to meet him since I'm "only" 15. And I'm grounded for going behind his back, and am not allowed to see him again until my dad meets him. I don't think it's fair. My dad is really intimidating which is why I didn't want him to know in the first place. How do I get his trust back so I can see my boyfriend again?

By being upfront. He has every right to be upset, you are young, your dating behind his back which could lead to sexual things which could in turn lead to pregnancy and life altering consequences. Its perfectly reasonable to be upset that you would betray his trust that way. Especially since you intentionally hid it from him, that makes what your doing even more suspicious. So you tell him about your boyfriend, explain why you where afraid to tell him about him and then set something up to let him meet your boyfriend. His job is to protect you which he cannot do if you are hiding things from him, this is his purpose in life to ensure the best life and outcomes for you even if you don't see it that way or even agree with his views that is what he is doing so try to keep that in mind.0

Your dad is completely reasonable. He needs to meet up with your boyfriend in order to decide whether he is trustworthy or not. That's the only way you can earn his trust. Next time, don't lie to your parents.0
