Okay sooo here's what happened. I'm 19, and I met a guy who I really liked. Turns out he's 26. about 7 years older than me. Which I don't think is that bad, especially with how he treats me. And I feel so comfortable around him. However my parents would totally NOT approve. So when my mom asked how old he was, I said 23. Shouldn't have lied, but I did it anyway.
If they knew how old he was they wouldn't let me date him! And I would end up sneaking around behind them, because I still live with them for now. And it would all around be a bad situation. I do plan to tell them the truth in the future... after I move out...
Did I do the right thing?
- Yeah I'd lieVote A
- I'd never lie about thatVote B
- otherVote C

You should come clean because then they'll understand that you are gaining maturity and plus lies waste so much time and thoughts. Which means that essentially lying is a waste of life and disrespectful to your own integrity. One lie only sets up the perpetrator to tell another one to cover it up and in the end you'll wish you hadn't buried your self respect under so many tales. It's like the boy who cried wolf, the third time no one believed him and he was mauled to death. Stand up for yourself and smile for the truth and your days will be all the more brighter0

Although I do not agree with lying, I can understand your reasons for doing so. i believe at the moment it may be best to not tell them until they actually get to know him. Once they get to know him, see the nice man he is- then when you do tell them, it hopefully will not be so bad.
I agree telling them before they met him, they could just judge him and won't give him a chance but as I said, once they know him they can be able to put the age thing behind0
