Ok so I reconnected with an old friend or I should probably say he's my childhood sweetheart❤ We knew each other since elementary school. We were each others first little boyfriend and girlfriend. We did everything together and made good memories. Until when I was 9 my dad got a new job and I ended up moving. Afterwards we kept connecting with each other for a long time until eventually we lost contact when I probably 11 or 12. Last I saw him I was 11 and he was 13. But then, 6 months ago over the summer, I suddenly found his Facebook and reconnected with him from there. We talked for a while on messenger, then a couple weeks later we exchanged numbers and we've been talking ever since. The problem is I never told my family about it. I've told a couple friends but not my family. I'm so scared that there's gonna be a fight and that they'll start accusing me thinking I'm meeting strangers off of Facebook which I'm not. I don't wanna lose him! I just want my family to be happy for me and respect me. I thought about it long and hard before adding him and I'm so happy I did add him. I don't regret it one bit! I really feel a connection with him especially now that we're grown up. I'm 24 I don't wanna feel like I have to ask their permission or opinions about it. I don't want any drama or nagging coming from then. I'm trying to figure out how to tell them without arguing or any drama. I want them to be happy for me. And I'm so happy I have him back in my life. So what should I do? How do I tell? How should I explain it?

Forgot to mention we still live in two different states but not really too far. So its possible to see each other.
