Most parents will appreciate a bf/gf who treats you with respect and honesty. If they observe that you are often sad or hurt, those are red flags for them.She never notices.”The doorbell rang and some packages came—the UPS man had two: some squishy neon-colored balls for Lily’s younger sister, Olivia, 10, and Lily’s eyeliner. ” Lily told the UPS man, signing for it.“Don’t tell Mom,” she told Olivia, the package under her arm. ”“She took Henry to the Apple store,” Olivia said, tearing open her box of squishy balls. ” Lily asked.“To buy him a new i Phone,” Olivia said. He threw it at the wall when he got mad at the game he was playing. Lily’s father was a lawyer who worked in Manhattan and her mother was a stay-at-home mom.He threw it twice.”Lily was glad Henry wouldn’t be in the house while she was getting ready to go on her date; he was always saying things to try and make her doubt herself, always comparing himself to her, saying he was better at sports, and she was “dumb” for caring about things like clothes and makeup. As the oldest of five, Lily said she never felt she had her parents’ full attention; the littler kids took up so much of her mother’s time and “my dad is, like, never home.” Her mother did pay her attention, she said, but she was “always, like, managing me and making sure I’m doing everything right.” So now it was nice—“so nice,” she said—to have someone in her life like Josh, her date, who would just talk to her and listen to her, and tell her she was pretty, “Oh my God, like all the time.”They hadn’t actually seen each other in person for about a year. Ever since then, she said, she and Josh had been Skyping most nights for about an hour, and then for three- or four-hour stretches every weekend, only stopping “when we have to, like, go to the bathroom or take a shower.” Now they were texting all day, every day, even during school (“We just talk about whatever we’re doing, or we’ll say, like, Hey, what’s up, hi, bye”).But there is an entire other level of stress when, for some reason, you discover d put strain on your home life.When you discover your parents strongly disapprove of your bf/gf, your first inclination will be to pull away from them and continue your dating relationship behind their back. Never secretly date someone your parents don’t want you to date.
