I'm 21 years old. Meeting people online is the most convenient way for my lifestyle. I want to respect my parents and let them know who I want to date, since I still live with them, but they don't like the idea of having friends online or dating such people. They assume ALL people online are bad.
I met him on GAG and we've been talking for about 3 months and would like to try dating while we still only live 2 hours away from each other. I go away to another school in January, and we want to test "us" out to see if a longer distance thing would be worth trying.
How do I handle my parents with this? I don't want to lie, but I worry that they'll automatically dislike him simply because I met him online. I think sneaking around to meet with him would be just as bad as lying about how I met him. Any tips?

I think if you explain your plan, safety wise, and your thoughts, then they should be more understanding than otherwise.0
